Where love is understanding
where love acceptance be
there need be no demanding,
nor need for thanks to see.

Where love is comprehending
there's neither great nor small,
there are no rules for bending,
where none need rules at all.

What seems unknown is cover
more self from self than other
and what one should discover,
self needs not rhyme with smother.

There is no love in giving,
forgiving? where's the need,
as in the art of living
acceptance is the seed.

There's even less in taking
in breaking for the fun
for this is self mistaking
before the journey's done.

Acceptance no judgemental
defences needs to place,
nor proves a brickwall mental
for saving face or grace.

Response and not reaction
here seek to answer part,
if only tiny fraction
rich base from which start.

Go read Lucinda Matlook,
Spoon River, lies in peace,
there's neither challenge, gridlock
where harmony's release.

The Universe vibration
appears from end to end
which each new generation
learn to transmit and send.

One could flow on forever
forever and a day,
in daily life this never
attention spans may sway,

so here's an end to versing,
acceptable we hope,
the game is role reversing,
the image is of scope.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
