Poetry



-- Quote of the Day -- 

"Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt,
 and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen."

Rhythm and Rhyme

 For those of you curious about poetry - we have 2 books of poetry out... Rhythm and Rhyme ... and Towards Understanding.

Towards Understanding  


I'd like to share one of my original poems here with you today:


Opportunities To Create Positive Change

Our global society must decide today
Whether we will live in a sustainable way.

Will we be a locust species?
Leaving health in little pieces?
Or will we spread wings to be
Stewards, like the bumblebee?

We are a species, who in essence,
Have survived by physical senses.
Yet we can change our self,
And change the world.

Struggling for isolation;
Living by definition.
Yet there's unity in our diversity...
You are I - and we are they.

With combined wisdom, compassion,
And shuddering footsteps,
Individual actions role model,
And direct the future.

Can we see the possibility?
The moment-to-moment opportunity,
For conscious, responsible action
Toward positive change.
