By Su Shafer

Memorable writing that sparks imagination. Lean in. Hear the writer’s voice on the page.

Fragile egg is not so fragile.

Blank slate not so blank.

Like a bud inwardly smiling

About the blossom to come.

Potential quietly waiting,

Imagining possibilities.

A whole universe before creation.

How can it contain so much excitement

And remain so calm

And confident?

It doesn’t fear the breaking

Or the new world waiting

Outside its shell.
