The Shape Of Things To Come

As I age, I care less for what is material, I gravitate towards the intangible. I am thankful for those true about me, I count the simple as my blessings. I give more room and understanding, I take less because I need less. People first, and all the love I can muster.

    I love these thoughts for I too can relate to them; age and experience help us to mature and learn what really is important in life. Excellent write and message. // paul

    Absolutely charming...perhaps "simple things" are a good, good poet, we are glad to have you hear on the soup. BG BTW..feel free to critique me at any time. I need all the help I can get...

    I love this poem. I managed to capture a picture today of clouds, depicting a broken heart.... She is more kind than you would imagine to warn us of whats to come. ... Relatable piece, wonderfully written.
