In this final month of the year, our challenge was to write a poem of gratitude in any form. I've been pondering favorite lines of poetry and using them to write my own poems, so today I'm sharing a golden shovel that uses a line from "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by T.S. Eliot.
A Golden Shovel for My Poetry Sisters
This is beyond me, myself, and I.
We are friends who have
been tested and measured
by all that life can throw at us. Out
of affection and gratitude for my
sisters, I declare that this life
would not be the same with-
out you. I am the tea to your coffee,
you are the forks to my spoons.
