A Challenge for May

I frequent a virtual world called Second Life. I will admit that i probably spend more time there than I should. Okay, yes, I definitely spend more time there than I should.  Anyway, Ryan from Medici University in Second Life challenged everyone to use the number of the day in some way. While I was going to have two separate blogs, one for Second Life and one for, well, real life, I decided that since I was going to be writing and posting the same thing to both for this challenge, I would just use this one blog.

So since today is May 1, May Day, my post will have something to do with ONE. Today it will be a poem.


Today I climbed a single hill.
Atop it was a single tree.
As I sat beneath it
listening to the birds
singing a single song
I closed my eyes
and wondered.
When did we become
blacks and whites
Natives and Americans
illegals and legals
Chinese, Japanese, Russians
and everything else
that separates us all
from being the one
we are meant to be...
human beings.

Not too bad for it being my first poem in I don't know how long. It's been way too long and I truly enjoyed writing this. Perhaps I will expand on it at some point.

Hope you all have a day that fills you with inspiration.
