In your element


I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you speak of the home you'll have.

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you talk about sports you love to play

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you are surrounded by books you read so diligently

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you listen to music that fills your soul

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you sit quietly in reverie

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you spend time watching television

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you share your meal with anyone in need

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you serve as a loving example to your children

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you practice random acts of kindness

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you volunteer your time so selflessly

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you take on any competition as if life depended on it

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you adapt to any situation as if you were always a part

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you sway as if you were a flower in the breeze

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you are proving your point with conviction

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you joke around with joviality and mirth

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you listen intently at woes and joyfulness

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you toast to life in merriment

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when we walk silently along and still understand what's not said

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you open your heart to al comers
Than when you write out your thoughts rapidly

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you sing of key as if it were opera

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you spank me with a lesson I badly deserve

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you enjoy a meal that fills you to the gills

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you smile politely at all you meet

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you excitedly watch in suspense for a movie to end

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you dance for hour without stopping

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you tell the honest truth no matter how it's taken

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than the way you speak to anyone who'll listen as if you‘ve known them for ages

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you are at home with yourself

Than when you are at home with yourself
Than when you are silently feeling out a situation before acting

I have never seen you more in your element.
Than when you go deep into the heart of the matter


Than when you go deep into the heart of the matter
Than when you are truly being you

No matter the circumstance
it's always good to see you in your element

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
