Peru Proud

There she stands,

Belongs,

Enlivened

By the land

That mountains birthed,

And the knowledge

Of the power

That she holds

Through Mother Earth.

Harp’s Heart

Off they go

With the harp

And the sounds

In their hearts.

Off they go

To work hard

And music’s soul

To impart.

Do or Dye

Do not shy

From the dye,

Do not cringe

From the fringe.

What gives flowers the hue

Can teach color to you.

If two tones were the all

We’d be so bored we’d bawl.

So go on and dye more

Shades of lovely galore.

 

 

For The Tuesday Photo Challenge

Your Kind Of Exceptional

Be your own kind of

Exceptional.

Not inherently better than others

Not more entitled

Yet still unequivocally

Uniquely

Equipped

To be the best that you can be

And do the most good you can do

As you.

On This Planet

Every day I am reminded

How very partial I am

To the multitudes of

Living things

Upon this Earth.

They are all part of me

Just as I am part of all.

You see,

Our air has been

A zillion times recycled

Through innumerable breaths.

Each drop of water has been

In every ocean

Swam in every river

Rained on every land.

Molecules have merged into our very selves

From all that is around us.

Life has birthed and died and birthed

Repeatedly

So many times

That we are indeed

Essentially

Not just of one planet

But all One.
