A Life Opportune - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

Life is a river of living riches
As is the bountiful nature itself
Filled with wonderful living things
All beautiful, essential and splendid
Of which fate evolves within specificities
Where opportunities abound around in surge
Awaiting pleasure for whoever sees it through.

Life is a forest of living ideas
As is the thoughts of the mind itself
Filled with voluminous vivid aspirations
All beautiful, essential and so profound
Of which dream arises within capacities
Where inspiration triggers able perspiration
Awaiting success for whoever works it through.

Life is a display of living arts
As is the outcome of imaginations itself
Filled with colors from the talents of poets
All beautiful, essential and very adorable
Where love becomes the ultimate feeling
Awaiting zest for whoever wishes it through.
