It really caused quite a stir! Poetry can be an extraordinary vessel for exploring health topics - I wrote one on meditation a year or so back that I was quite fond of! Yours was truly wonderful - thanks for inspiring the challenge!

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

There are so many things to write about, how wonderful! It's nice to know that you take poetry into account, thank you very much for that. <3
