as poetry.


“some of us don’t want to be tough alpha leaders.
some of us just want to write
and wander
the garden
and breathe in the sky
and nourish and nurture
and quietly create
new pathways
and live our
lives as art.
to know the earth
as poetry.”
-victoria erickson, rhythms and rhymes
in honor of national poetry month

  1. Some will never understand this poem/these thoughts. Just as some will never understand the need to be an alpha leader. One is no better than the other and aren’t we glad there are some of each kind.
