My Favorite Poem

Edwin Markam



Edwin Markham


He drew a circle that shut me out —
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But Love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle that took him in!



You will find I’m a great believer in the circle. Our life is a circle. Nature is a circle. The circle has many meanings. It can mean universal, sacred and divine.  It has no beginning and no end. It  represents unity, wholeness, and infinity. It represents the infinite nature of energy, and the inclusiveness of the universe.  Circles can be protective of those inside of it. It’s been used in astrology, religion, and all kinds of rituals.  My favorite circles have been taught to me by several different Native American friends. Even though I am not Native American, they have taken me in and taught me to look and listen with my heart.
