Ignite It

It’s time to rid the page of the negative
and gently scribe the positive.
Somewhere deep within the jelly of the mind and skull,
shaking there, quivering there within it.
A small spark is firing,
a spark waiting to be fueled,
igniting a more good thought.
The combustible will come from outside it.
It will be a kind word,
the purr of a cat,
or noticing the beauty of young unblemished skin.
The fuel is everywhere.
Let that small moist spark ignite it.


  1. I wish to do the same but it never works out constructively, for me.
    Brilliantly written, specially the last two line. Thanks for sharing. 🙂


  2. Oh! This brought joy-tears to my eyes.
    I love it! Your words are so true, and woven together so beautifully!
    I read A LOT of poetry…and this is one of the best poems I’ve read in a long time! Thank you for writing this! I might be stopping by to reread and reread.
    I have friend I need to read this poem to. He needs to hear your words.
    As a “glass is half full” and “it will be filled up soon” person, I am for ridding the negatives and scribing the positives!
    HUGS!!! 🙂


  3. Sometimes the smallest things can have the largest impact. 🙂

    Does this mean I can get a kitten?
