DMC: "Passions" by Karen Eastlund

          ~with a line from "Truth, by Tyrone Bittings"

Put your passions to good use
Ponder them
and pursue them to
fulfillment. Don’t cry
tears of regret. Work! Find a way to
bloom! Then pump fists and shout!

Click HERE to read this month's interview with Nikki Grimes. She has challenged us to write a golden shovel poem using a line from one of the poems in the post.

Leave your golden shovel on our March 2018 padlet. All contributions will be included in a wrap-up celebration this Friday, March 30th, and one lucky participant will win a copy of her new companion novel to Bronx Masquerade:


  1. Thank you, Karen. Thank you for all the things this rallying cry stands for — justice, creativity, togetherness... all the things that make life worth living.

  2. A just right poem for this Monday, Karen, keeping our passions strong! Love the 'passion', 'ponder' and 'pursue'.

  3. Thank you, ladies! This was an interesting challenge.
