Poem 20151121

I’m going to say thank you to Doug at his terrific blog Elusive Trope for nominating me for the Three Days, Three Quotes Challenge.

How the challenge works: I nominate three others to also embrace this challenge and, on three consecutive days, to provide a quote along with your take on it. As far as I can see, that take can be a post (like this one will be), or a poem, or a photo. Hey, how about a song, or spoken word?

It’s Day Three. I’m not adding new nomination, but here are the nominees from Day One. Please check out their blogs:

Linton’s Legacy

Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.
–Ralph Waldo Emerson

we rise up
though our legs buckle
and we fall again
dig our hands into the earth
spit the dust from dry mouths
we dare the hammer
to strike once more
we rise up
