Buttonsby Melissa Campbell
Buttons draw close,
And fasten firm together,
Giving room to breathe,
Two sides meant to be connected,
Though living worlds apart.
Buttons cover up indecent exposure,
And bridge the naked gaps,
Sometimes mending old riffs,
Sometimes needing to be reattached,
Always finding friends of like mind and heart.
Buttons lead us to discover
Journeys we never dreamed of,
Rare treasures found in the most hidden places,
Pearls formed with great price,
Kindred seeker--seers, popping color in poetic art.
Some buttons are plain and simple,
Others glossy, glamorous, gaudy even,
All unique in size and shape,
All inviting us to reach out and touch,
To become one,
Drinking in as we impart.

I took some time today to create a button for my blog-site. I am not a pro, and I am embracing the fact that perfection is achieved only when I am gone. So after a couple of hours, this is it! If you would like to add my button to your blog, you will find the code at the bottom of this page.
