Ageless Seeds Of Simple Joys

Ageless Seeds Of Simple Joys When walking in splatter of Spring's anticipated rains blessed is the youth in you, if wearing no shoes; further given if you can then see rainbow hues thus finding such fantastic sights halt great worries and pains. Such fleeting rewards fly by with blossoming paradise sails should you bask in that magnificent soft warm glow; savor precious moment, follow which way it blows casting care to the wind, seek victory that never fails? As smiling blue sky, clears to send you a most wondrous day your heart explodes in radiance of sacred gifts with sunny joy bestowed as clouded spirit lifts - hope’s appreciation cupped in hands; precious golden ray. Sweet tears of joy that bring us back to laughter of our youth when colors filled our world not overcast with doubt, and purest pleasures bloomed and new ideas did sprout from creativity’s simple seeds sown in fertile truth. So for a time give wings to worry’s flight from your pained mind, your future’s not as bleak as life would make it seem; bare feet can splash in puddles neath a rainbowed dream, life’s pleasures in your golden age still there for you to find. Robert J. Lindley and Susan Ashley (a collaboration) July 9, 2018 ______________________________ My poet's note: I must thank you again my dear friend- for your friendship is a blessing and writing with me is an honored and most splendid gift from a very talented, generous and kindhearted friend and exceptional poet! Your golden verses flow as a cool breeze and soothe as hot cup of coffee on a cool Spring morn. You will always have my gratitude for all the wonderful things you do for me both as a dear friend and as a writing partner. Susan's poet’s note: My dear friend Robert, your enchanting inspiration has worked its magic, once again, for generating yet another radiant collaborative experience. It’s was with wonderful pleasure that I enjoyed the opportunity to write with you this meaningful poem of hope and happiness as one grows older… the golden thread of hope continues to weave its way through our writes and I’m proud of the tapestry our words do create. I relish the privilege of being your writing partner, it is my lovely joy and an honor. Your superb poetic talent and insight gives your poetry a lustrous quality and a rich value that I treasure. It is with my truest appreciation that I call you, my friend. Thank you Robert..
