Changing Ways

A Poem by storiestotell

Fore the creative poetry group. Two challenges in one! Words are posted in the tags! We also had to write about a quote, which is written at the end of the poem.


Loki was her nickname she wore proudly

Like a crown upon her head

Because of shenanigans in her heart

Disposition was dead

Puerile ways paled her aura

Antic jokes was endlessly


Years gone by she now soars

With divine glory clothing her

When leaves rustles in the wind

The overhanging tree cascades

Her with cool touches of nirvana

Heart ceaselessly talks to her

Of kindness she has desseminated


Free from the bonds of selfabsorbent

Kind words she sprinkles about

Meaningful moments follow her every step

Captived by a yearning of helping others

Well-suited words spoken or received

Is the formula for her life


She wears a beatific smile

Keeps the path of good deeds fresh

Where she is greeted with eager kindness

Like a soft gentle word that

Mellows her heart to a soft rhythm


Each step she takes feels like levity

Trifling days now of the past

She sits in her comos garden

Solar rays gleaming down

She thinks of her favorite quote


"Little deeds of kindness,

Little words of love,

Make our earth an Eden,

Like the heaven above."

By: Julia A. Fletcher Carney
