Each week Ruth Ayres extends an invitation to share our celebrations.

My one little world for this year has many dimensions to it. I have such big plans in 2017 for this word. One of them is celebrating the people who help me to rise, and who have influenced and inspired my writing life. One of those people is Margaret Simon at Reflections on the Teche.
But it is so much more than that.
Inspiration is creating a positive or creative feeling in someone.
I know I am not the only one who cherishes Margaret's words. I took comments from her readers and weaved them together in this celebration poem.
You are magical
born to weave words
a master of inspiration
we are your benefactors
your care and attention you bring to life
capture the joy
awaken my senses
your sentimental ways
your desire to help others
tells a story of your heart
I am in awe of your way with words
you give your words so freely and abundantly
you teach us too, with your gentle example
your “Melody” fills my spirit
magic is always here
the world will be better
for your poetry is in it
