I was inspired by my 6-year-old niece’s poem above, to write this:

cool oasis for the weary traveler.

The Oprah.com Dream Board tool has just added words…so you can play with poetry, like I did the other day.

As the end of the month approached, poetry started coming to me. I did not write a single original blog post during May or most of June.
