Wide

Wide is the expanse of the universe
Insignificant we are, a mere dot
Do not even register in the big scheme
Endless journey, destination unknown

Wide open is this world of ours
Inviting all of us to share
Delightful offerings of nature
Enjoyment to everyone that cares

Wide rivers rushing down to merge
Into the bosom of wide oceans
Down will come the water as rain
Enriching the earth to be fertile again

Wide vistas encompass us everywhere
In our hearts why then have narrow feelings
Destruction of this only home of ours
Endangering the world, why to bear this curse

*************************************
Wide in everything is of course not good
In too wide a midriff we will face grief
Diabetes may lurk in the shadows
Ending our lifestyle as we know it
************************************

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. Beautiful. I love how the “W” words keep finding you, just in time for your Wednesday poetry challenges. As we used to say in the doctor’s office, “A waist is a terrible thing to mind.” Especially a wide one. πŸ™‚
