Y/ News?


I sat on my porch
and just in front my eyes
two butter colored butterflies
made the most lovely and sexy dance
around a thick white flowery branch.

I worked a bit in my garden
and just next to my hands
I saw seven industrious ants.
They carried together a grain of rice
with loving dedication, isnt this nice?

I made a walk on the beach.
There was a couple holding hands.
I saw so many families and friends,
sharing lots of drinks and food,
sharing jokes and much of good.

I came inside; on was the TV.
A newspaper lying in front of me.
What did I see?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

There often such an enormous gap between the world we experience and what we read and see on tv and in the news.
Without denying the many problems in the world, it may be a good idea to now and then switch of the TV for a day.

    A television certainly can change one's focus in an instant, and spoil the picture - putting a damper on one's whole day. Very well said Hans. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    We spend far too much time in front of the TV, or the computer screen. Wise poem, with good advice to get out there and see what's going on. (Report) Reply

    I just loved this, a very beautiful....for now i am very happy as i avoiding the TV all times where i found true things to do..but sometimes we still need to get on news to know what is world tells...sometimes when we sober enough we can filter whats good whats not....its like a kid try to cheat and adult, too wise to be fooled but too nice to be ignored..just for fun nothing so serious we should be sometimes_Soul (Report) Reply

    A stroll through nature's garden can clear ones mind and cleanse his soul.

    Very nice and interesting thought-write.
    So someone rightly commented LIFE WAS SO SIMPLE AND BEAUTIFUL; when apples and blackberrys were just fruits! ! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
