This week I have decided to honor a fellow author and poet, Sue Patton Thoele. Sue has written several inspirational books. I have mentioned Sue’s book Growing Hope in a previous blog.
Lately, I have been reading Autumn of the Spring Chicken, which is poetry, and very similar to my writing style. I am about to start the book The Courage to be Yourself, and am awaiting delivery of her newest book, The Mindful Woman.
Please feel free to visit Sue’s website at http//www.suepattonthoele.com.
Here is a poem from Autumn of the Spring Chicken:
Each day is
A newborn child
Living and dying
In the scant hours
Between dawn and dusk
It is our sacred responsibility
To nurture each day,
Unique and precious child
Of our waking hours,
Into the twilight
Of its perfect maturity
