Much love to you dear Christy, for sharing your talent here on Kids’ Month. This poem is truly inspired, and you are a hero to me. I also thank you (and Aquileana) for making me aware of “Let Girls Learn”. It is one of the charities I am supporting here,on KM!
Hi all! This new poem called “Challenge” gets its inspiration from a particular piece of street art depicting a wolf. The amazing artwork was photographed by Resa of Graffiti Lux and Murals, as part of Kids’ Month. Resa has taken photos of wonderful youth-friendly street art and asked for submissions of poetry and short stories to accompany them throughout the month of March. I’m happy to be a part of the exciting project this year! You can participate too by following the link above.
This wolf art caught my eye with its bright colors and wonderful details. The artist is Cash Akoza.

And here is the poem that stirred in my mind as I looked at the wolf street art:
You’re a lone wolf,
Away from the pack and
Savoring a fearless thought,
Blue eyes intent on the path…

Thank you for the reblog and kind words, Resa. I love what you are doing here! I’m so glad Aquileana and I told you about Let Girls Learn too. It’s nice that we can collaborate, motivate, and cheer one another on ❤
Yay! Thank you for writing such a great and clever poem for Kids’ Month! ❤ I love collaborations, and Kids' Month is my first attempt to join with more than 1 person on a project.
"Let Girls Learn" is a wonderful cause, and it's hard to believe that in 2017 AD girls and women are still kept down.
Let Girls Learn is one of 5 causes I am attempting to champion during Kids' Month.
Another cause that does a lot for women and children (mostly girls, but young boys, too) is Matai Nepal. Incredible that people (mostly men) enslave children and women into sexual servitude. If you don't know about it take a moment to check it out. The link is on my sidebar with the other 4 causes./charities.
Matai Nepal was a CNN Hero in 2012.
Love to you, Christy! xoxo
Googling Matai Nepel now xx Keep up the great work, Resa. Your huge heart is an inspiration
Uch… spelled Maiti Nepal. Lol, I need a proof reader. xoxo to you, dear Christy!
drifting through the silent still night,
away from those,
dancing within society,
No longer hunting those simple Unicorns…
As a gift,
Consider it done!
Thank you, Chris!
That is a very beautiful, well penned poem.
I am honored!
Go Christy and Resa! The art you find is so wonderful, Resa — and high five to Cash Akoza.
High fives back at you, Jet!!!! xx
I love wolves. This one certainly catches the eye and looks a bit like Sashia, a husky mix I adopted before Ms. Zulu came on board. She was a lot of fun. She died at age 10.5. She struggled with chronic kidney disease since age 1.5.
Aww, poor Sashia! At least she had you. Well, you have Ms. Zulu & Benji now. They are soo gorgeous. I love the Benji posts!
Thanks! We expect to send you some pics for the kid’s month post in the next couple of days. We haven’t forgotten, just trying to find some time!
No worries! Like I said, they can be from your collection. I will be happy with whatever you send. It’s just so great to have lovely doggies helping out! xo
Home run by Christy!
Yeah… pretty great!
Great pieces of art for charity! Wonderful work, Resa and Christy 🙂

It is a very clever poem, and perfect for Kids’ Month. I’m very grateful.
How wonderful. I love it.
Me too! I love it, too!
I love the artwork and the poem – you make a great team – thank you for showing and creating such beauty.
Christy is awesome! and such a talented soul. I visited her page read and commented. My favorite poem by her. 🙂
You are a doll, Charlie! She writes, beautifully! 😀
You write spicily, like Nine Inch Nails in a way! I adore your work.
This is fabulous – the art and the poem!
Kid’s month, Yay!
He is gorgeous; as is Christy and her poem.
What a lot of fun you’ve produced, Resa. Do we ever lose the child? 🙂
