The Power of Poetry

Ten Million Reasons

I can’t help but wonder how many people will read this poem. That’s why I wrote it. If you’re reading this, know that it is my hope that maybe one person will take a piece of meaning and message away from my words as they are read aloud by someone else on their journey through the dark days of winter.
That’s How Many There Are — by DALL·E, an AI system by OpenAI

All at once, a million flashed and swirled into my sight.
Then I saw two more, ten million more.
Came on so fast they shook my whole world with their glow.
Standing still and holding each other tight, the million bulbs came alive in all the trees that surrounded me.
ten million fireflies, shining bright, from every twig and tree.
