Today’s Person – A Golden Shovel Format Poem

Watch, now, how I start the day

In happiness, in kindness. – Mary Oliver


Today’s Person


Each day I wonder who will cross my path, for them I watch.

I can choose to be a spark in the life of another, I can choose that now.

I can learn something new, I’ll show you how.

The statement cannot begin with I.

You, has to be the start.



that day,

they let me in.


It filled my soul,

the inner joy of kindness.


– Mary-Jeanne Smith
