Here’s the complete poem, “Put These Words Into Practice”, with the quote I chose for my upcoming book of poetry, “A Confederacy of Joy”.

The poem was inspired by my trying to leave things that can’t be changed in the past and resisting the worry and stress of a future that really doesn’t exist and once I did, the joy I experienced – like some great secret or mystic discovery. I imagined that the whole universe fell into alignment, became my ally and welcomed me into a cosmic army of benevolence and well-being.Put These Words Into Practice
