Our Thoughts Extend From Us To Reach - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Our thoughts.
Actions.
And our deeds from us released...
Reflect,
Not only our expectations...
But express as an investment,
None of us should perceive...
Decreases in value.

Our thoughts,
Whether believed faithfully or not...
To be shared as spoken,
Instills...
Significant influence.
As if a seed implanted,
Within a mind open and listening.
Evaluating content.

What was said.
Who said what.
And how what was said to whom...
Has its effectiveness.

Like the Sun coming to rise upon the horizon.
That same Sun sets.

Like a leaf attached to the branch of a tree.
That tree provides all connected to it with nourishment.
And it is rooted...
Grounded,
To the Earth.
This Earth.
Our Earth.

Much like our thoughts...
Extend from us to reach!

Much like our thoughts...
Extend from us to reach!

Much like our thoughts...
Extend from us to reach!
