Simple Truths

dogwood

I still want to believe in simple truths

in sunrises and sunsets

skies that are blue or gray

depending on nature’s mood and mine

in love that lasts forever

if only I give it power

like rain that falls on me

unexpectedly

in hope that blooms in Spring

the buds on flowering trees

undisturbed by the lies

the world tells on a daily basis

    I love these lines – the self-determination that creates a positive outlook on life. Your reading is very well done too. Enjoyed everything – poem – photo – voice.

  2. That was great poetry until you politicized it. I thought your perfect conclusion could be supplied by the reader, leaving you free from “bias” balanced on perception and Wisdom.
    Thank you for making me think πŸ™‚
