Dedication - The 23rd Word in the Good Words Project - Poem

Updated on October 14, 2016

The Good Words Project.

The "Good Words" Project, was originally created by Jo_Goldsmith11, to help our fellow Hubbers practice good words, and with Dedication we strive to inspire, to promote good will and to bring recognition to unknown writers on this site.

When Grace (Jo) told me about the "Good Words" project, I made her a promise to write a poem for each word she gave our fellow Hubbers each week.

Grace, has since become disheartened and taken all her hubs down, including the "Good Words" lists that she put out weekly. I will not take down any of my poems, because I for one am proud of the idea of the good words project, and still believe in that project.


Butterflys are God's dedication to beauty

Dedication

© by Shyron Shenko

I thought my muse

Had lost her dedication

That caused her hesitation

Then she came back without the trepidation

My Muse told me!

With total dedication I must write

And to keep "Good Words" always in my sight


Source
Source

With total dedication I would find

The right words to make them rhyme

With Dedication in each line

Jo asked: What are some ways

We can learn to dedicate ourselves?

To areas in our lives,

That needs to have more focus

When we need to set things right


With Dedication

I need to finish up a song

That I have been working on so long

      I am glad you had a quiet day, and I hope you managed to get the a/c repaired, it will soon be blazing hot again and stay that way for months on end.

      Hope you are well. Blessings and hugs dear friend.

      Love the butterflies and would like to know more about the song you have been working on for so long? Sharing of course.

      Has been a quiet day for which I am thankful. My a/c has gone out on my car a few days ago and that's the problem of the moment. So getting it fixed is what I'm dedicated to at the moment and I hope nothing else goes wrong until I can get the a/c fixed. One thing at a time.

      Hope all is well there. Blessings dear friend. Take care . . .

      Great photos too. The way 'they' mess with us continually makes it very hard to be dedicated to this site. Sharing this of course. Take care . . .

      Dearest Maria, your Momma would love my collection of songs by Dolly. Dolly is the most beautiful person inside (next to my Mammaw) and I love her and her songs. I loved her song written for Porter Wagner, "I will always love you" and nobody not even Whitney could sing it like Dolly could.

      Thank you for the compliments, comments and up votes.

      Love you too, Shyron

      Oh dearest Shyron,

      My Momma adored this song by Dolly Parton and I remember Porter Wagner so well, even seeing him as I took Mom to the Grand Ole Opry for her 75th birthday. What memories listening to it brings... thank you.

      As far as dedication, you have it in spades, girlfriend. We all need a pause here and there - making efforts even more beautiful, just like this poem. Voted UP and UABI. Love you, Maria

      Dolly sang that song for the first time in 1974. Where did the time go?

      Have a blessed night.

      Thank you Glenda, believe me I understand, with your little ones and your husband and working that it would be difficult to write for HP. Some people join just to read, not a suggestion.

      BTW we did not get the paper today.

      Thanks again for the comment.

      Ruby, thank you for the comment. Dolly was young, that was thirty years ago released in 1974, I heard it the day of release, it has a special meaning to me. My song is being written for my grandson Zane to sing so I don't know if I will publish it on or not. Zane has an amazing voice as in my American Idol Hub. Someday?

      Blessings to you my dear friend.

      Excellent! Dedication is to something or someone important. Being dedicated means not giving up no matter how tough the going. You are truly gifted with words. The butterflies are beautiful too. Think I like the blue one best.

      Voted up and BAI. Pinned to AH and sharing.

      Have a peaceful night. Blessings
