Sharing a poem I wrote earlier this month. Initially I titled it Examination Day, but after going back and forth with hubby about all the possibilities- I just went with the sheep by still waters…

I am heading into new territory, I hope you will continue to journey with me.  I will be sharing a few poems as I am led, on writing for the purpose of healing. I may share  poems written during my teen years in conjunction with current ones I am writing now in my fifties.

The one who cared not whether what he said would win him favor with the religious elite or the politically inclined.  More
