Poetry Part #1

Poetry Part #1


March onward

Spring forward

Morning rains

Winter drains

Nature awakes

Sunshine breaks

Clouds part ways

Unwrap warm days

Green pathways bring

March to spring

Opinions are based on tried and true
they are a part of me; a part of you
No opinion you state is ever wrong
it compares to singing your very own song

Research your subject before you speak
Keep the atmosphere light not to be bleak
Opinions are what you stringently believe
It’s best to state them in order to relieve

At times you hold back not to discord
The feelings of others kept in accord
You know when it’s best just to remain
quiet when only in your own domain

Others refrain when you become vocal
just humble yourself not to be focal
So keep the peace wherever you go
learn to know when to take it slow

No two opinions are alike I’m happy to say
Just be bold and give it anyway
Respect other’s opinions whatever to be
We are all a part of God’s family

From the front porch,
Miles to the east,
Verdant mountains,
Materialize to fill my eyes.
To my left,
Trees with new pink buds,
Harbingers of spring,
Among their branches
Sparrows longing for
The return, of warmer days.
