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,
A whole universe before creation.
How can it contain so much excitement
And remain so calm
It doesn’t fear the breaking
Or the new world waiting
Outside its shell.
