Much more you be

Inspired by Susan Delaney's latest Poem 'Every beautiful thing'

Much more you be.

Why aren’t you smiling?
Why aren’t you dancing with delight?
Just take a look around you
See the flowers, with colors bright
The birds, the beasts, the heavens
Oh, open up your eyes!!
Let each day be so wonderful
As you watch the dawn arise

You search for reason
You live for your beliefs
Yet life is not about this
It has smiles, and it has grief
Yet all of this you be
Every tiny bit is you
Cause you, my friends be life itself
Take a look, you’ll know it’s true.

You seek life everlasting
And yet right now this be
Just look within, you’ll see all this
Seek out your mystery
You think you, be this story
You’re name and your ideals
Yet you be life, yes life itself
The only thing that’s real.

    Hi Peter, backagain to find some light and inspirastion. Once again your words bring so many visions to life in my head. The world is a beautiful place once more. I smile again, look forward to the coming day. You have such a way of putting your words down that they just sing off the page. I have to say, I always come and read one or two of yours Peter when I'm feeling low and they do perk me up. Life has its ups and downs but it is all life. Have a good day. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    Hi Peter: Andrea gave me the word to come and check out your poem. How wonderful and wise it is, and what a joy for me to have inspired your poem....that is what is so fantastic about writing and reading other works...it triggers something that was already in us just waiting to come forth. Much love, SuZ PS Thanks Linda for your kind words...I feel doubly blessed.

    sometimes I think humanity was created so nature " life " could look at itself and smile.
