LitWorld’s Global Poem – have you added your line yet?

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

There are still a few days left before the end of Poetry Month in the US, so if you haven’t already added your lines to LitWorld‘s Global Poem for Change, there’s still time.

Poet Naomi Shihab Nye wrote the beginning and sent the poem flying across the world:

I send my words out into the air, listening for yours from everywhere.

You can follow the poem here and add your own lines here. LitWorld needs your words to help their poem grow and remember, Your Words can Change Worlds – but hurry, the last lines must be sent in my the end of April.

Here are a few of my favorite lines so far:

Speak one word, one-thousand echoes

The sounds that echo through space and time; leave imprints that shape our growing minds

Words that stir, words that drive, words that connect us all, and make us strive.

Words will soar from near to far filling hearts and opening minds –

I can hear you ever so softly- like a single falling snowflake before the blizzard.

Starting with one little syllable… one little word… I offer my peace to the world…

Spoken in love and respect in an effort to change the world
