Poetry Challenge Day 200 (Fri Apr 22)

The Jefferson County Library District in Oregon is sponsoring a “Poetry Jam & Tea” today at the Madras Public Library. They have some suggested themes for the Jam, one is “Community.” I plan to attend the Jam and read this poem. At least that is the plan…

In a community,
everyone recognizes one another.
We greet with kindness and caring.
There’s no need to fly a flag
because everyone understands
that their views are respected.
We share a helping hand
without question or strings.
When someone is hurting
we step in to console,
when someone is happy
we share our happiness with them.
How do we create
this community?
