Wolf Moon: Invitation to Respond
Happy Poetry Friday, friends! This week, Tabatha is hosting the roundup at her space, The Opposite of Indifference. You'll find many poetry delights waiting for you there!
This week, I will be wrapping up a month long blog series centered around reflection. I have learned so much about myself as a writer throughout this series and will continue to do so, but the thing that has bubbled up the most for me throughout this process, is that response drives reflection. Response is a powerful action. Our response to reflection can spark so many new thoughts and purposeful change. The same thing is true when someone responds to our reflections. Our words and thoughts are validated. They matter. We all need someone to share our reflections with. Our responsiveness to life and to each other is worth sharing.
Listen to my poem-
Invitation to Write:
We each have a unique voice to be heard. What makes yours unique? What is it that others might miss out on if you did not share your voice? What are you passionate about sharing with others? Write something you care about, something you want to stir up a bit. If you do, I invite you to share your learning reflections with the #TeacherMyth followers on Twitter. This group is also thinking deeply about reflective practices and the power of response.

Oh, my....that wolf...that long and low call that love of war and famine and hate but the recognition of connection. Oh, that wolf I love him as much as I'm respectful of him. It IS a him. Isn't it?

We all need to stop and listen, then reflect.

Cool idea to write about a Wolf Moon! There are also Worm Moons, Strawberry Moons, and Hunters Moons -- it would be neat to do a series. Enjoyed what you had to say about reflection and response.

I adored watching the eclipse recently & now the planets also rising as moon friends. That thought of his "watchful eye" will stay with me, Kiesha. Perhaps a conversation will occur? Thanks for your reflection.
