Opportunities Near

Alliteration Lets Inspiration Sense Opportunities Near
Although libido increases strength occasionally, new
Love, if sincere only, noble, abides.
It succeeds openly, naturally attracting light,
Secrets occult never admits, life improves.
Others, niggardly, after limited ideas scheme -
No arrogant lies inwardly stimulate osmosis.

A little illumination sometimes offers notions
Letting inner sweetness out. Novel alliance,
If sought openly, nurtures active lustre.
Such opportunities need appropriate leeway, insight
Outlets. Needed approach liberates ideal synthesis
Neccessary, allowing love’s infinite song-oasis.

Average lives internally stagnate, offering nothing
Like intimate sensitivity, or noteworthy attainments
In soul-searching one’s nascent awareness, latent,
Sleeps. Oneiric nexus awakens, literally incandescent,
Overcomes native apathy letting idleness seduce
Natural aptitudes, - leaves internal strictures outwitted.

At last it seems offending nuances
Lift, idyll satisfies. Order new awaits.
Indifferent, stubborn overbearing natures are lost.
Sensitivity outwits negativity, affection leads into
Outreach, naturally accepts love, ignores selfishness.
Never abstain, link into self-sustaining opportunities!

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
