A Description

Finger-lacing

pulse racing

smile-facing

thought blocking

off-feet knocking

lips locking

sense-dazing

future gazing

all’s amazing

time-stopping

heart-propping

cherry-topping

this moment

The morning greets you

It has no reservations

Grant it a big hug

*****************

This time together

A treasure we must cherish

Let it not pass by

::::::::::::::::::::::::

There is a blue sky

See the sun shining for you

Smile in gratitude

I received this beautiful award from Jingle.

I would like to nominate Jingle for the Perfect Poet Award.

Will do in a pinch

though last on the list

just used like the winch

you get the gist

Not the best spot

when one-sided figures in

what you see is all you got

because all of ’em, you can’t win

It’s the hard place or the rock

and you’re caught between the two

sometimes love ties you up in knots

with just no way to break through

Can’t stop, try as I might

keeps hope in sight

i have the right

when something bites

don’t want to fight

seeks to make light

thoughts take flight

helps things sit right

peace-fills the night

i feel alright

all this; the why i write

How can we justify our greed

when there are millions of people in need?

On plates at a restaurant, I see so much waste

and think, that some poor child would beg for just a taste

Many in my country continually acquire

much more than a comfortable living would ever require

Yet, the drive to attain is always there

instead of the thought of how to care

 for other than one’s own self

What ever happened to “share the wealth?”

The least we all could do

is that for each thing new we get

give double to a needy soul who has nothing, yet

It truly is right to let go of all greed

Giving is the treasure to be sown like the seeds

A beautiful smile will spread across our very own face

when we nurture others to thrive in this human race

Hello, hello

hello, I repeat

to silence, only silence

for you do not speak

I wonder to myself

who would make a call

then simply hold on

saying nothing at all

Then I ponder, that maybe

you only wanted to know

what it would be like

to just hear someone say

hello

 

Morning comes again

In thanksgiving, I SEE life

Shine on, golden sun

* * * * * * * * * * *  * * * *

I apologize

Forgiven are you, as well

Brighter days ahead

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
