OLN #234 & Holiday Break

, , ,

This is our last post for 2018 and on behalf of the dVerse Team, thank you for your active participation and support of our pub.   We will be taking a two week break to rejuvenate and spend time with family and friends.   We wish you all the best for the holidays and into the new year!!!

As you know, OpenLinkNight  is your opportunity to link 1 poem of your choice as this is no prompt-day. For those who missed the Mr Linky deadline the past week or this Tuesday’s poetics about “Magic of Ordinary Things“, this is also your opportunity to share your poem.   Our pub talk – Identify and Perspective –  is still open for discussion and commenting.  Thank you for your enthusiasm and thoughts on the topic.  


I am sharing an inspiring message today by Marianne Williamson, Our Deepest Fear.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness
That most frightens us.

We ask ourselves
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small
Does not serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine,
As children do.
We were born to make manifest
The glory of God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us;
It’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we’re liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

See you in January 1, 2019 for Tuesday’s Poetics!!!!

To join us for Thursday’s OpenLinkNight, which happens every other week, here’s how to join:

See you at the poetry trail. ~Grace~
