<Poetry Prompt 24: Write a poem that responds to a statement or quote>
“Wherever you stand, be the soul of that place.” ~ Rumi
Be the spark, the knowingness,
the mother of the moment,
be the dream, the home, and the hope.
Wherever you stand, be the stone
and the wind. Yes, be the wind
in the trees of the soul of a place.
Wherever you stand, be a memory,
a hope of the future remembering
we all lived together in peace.
