Coexistence - Poem by Robert Murray Smith

When will you know
the beauty
of life, in
full sight?

The beauty of
a dragonfly,
helicopter like,
darting to and fro
for all to see.

The birds in daily
tasks, to be seen
by you, and me.

Look for a tiny
blue wren rushing
through the sky
today.

Even a little brown
rat scurrying through
its day.

For all creatures live
in life, to coexist.

    Congratulations Robert for your lovely poem that has a fine message for how sad when we allow the day to close on unappreciated beauty. Taking a moment to seek natures gifts is like a little daily shot of tonic for happiness.10+++ (Report) Reply
