Desire -38th Good Word of the “Good Words” Project

Desire is the 38th Good Word in Jo Goldsmith’s Good Words Project, words she gives us a new word weekly to help us realize that if we live by these words and practice them, we will become better people and better writers.

This is Jo’s calling to promote the work of unknown writers to bring us recognition, to help us become the best writers we can be.

The 38th week’s good word in Desire, it is my sincere desire to complete the Good Words Project.

I promised Jo that I would write a poem for each “Good Word” and although I am a little behind, I have kept and will keep my promise.


Desire what does it means?

Desire:

  • Want
  • Wish
  • Longing
  • Craving
  • Yearning
  • Need
  • Aspiration
  • Plea


Desire – What is Your Heart’s Desire?

© by Shyron Shenko


If you could have your heart’s desire

Just what would you require?

What would it be?

The riches of the world

Or peace for you and me?


What is Your Heart’s Desire?

To end all hunger, to end all wars

For the homeless,

Would you take a stand?

And extend a helping hand


What is Your Heart’s Desire?

To set the world on fire

Instead of lending a helping hand

To those whose problems are so dire

Or live a life of greed and never think of others needs


What is my heart’s desire?

What is my heart’s desire?

To see peace, in our country;

In our lifetime; in our world and in our lands

Where anyone who needs it, gets a helping hand?


So Far Away

      Au fait, thank you for the comment. Talk about desires, we had the son-in-law of a neighbor come to our door asking to buy some of our property, I am sure that the father-in-law led this man to believe that we are both senile and would give him the property for next to nothing. Then someone else saw the sign and wanted it all.

      Anyway, I hope all is well with you.

      Blessings and hugs.

      Most people's desires are selfish and superficial. Repeating that this is an excellent poem good for encouraging people to think.

      Hope you're enjoying this pretty day we're having. Won't be much longer and the heat will arrive to stay. Blessings to you and John and Chipper. Hope all is well . . .

      It is my desire that Jo 'Grace' Goldsmith11 returns to HP but I guess she had enough of the games and she took down all her hubs, but all the poems are still posted here.

      Au fait, thank you so much for the compliments and comments.

      The temperature was 105 degrees yesterday and we were cooking but like you said a couple of degrees one way or the other does not mean much.

      Hope and pray all is well with you.

      Blessings and hugs.

      Sharing this excellent poem again where readers will receive food for thought and that's always a good thing.

      Hoping we don't get to 100 F., as forecast, but we're so close anyway, I guess a couple more degrees won't matter. Take care in this awful heat. Blessing for you dear friend , , ,

      It has been raining steady all day and the water is up under the carport. The hail is coming down right now, sure hope it stops. I hope you are not out in this weather.

      Most people's desires are entirely selfish and not all that good even for themselves. Look around and see what a mess our world is because so many people are getting their selfish desires.

      It really is best to let God handle our desires because He knows what is best and is never blinded by the glitter and gold that we think we see.

      Sharing this excellent poem again.

      We are to have rain today and tomorrow. It sure has been humid and warm. I'm not complaining. At least it isn't so unbearably hot and it's been tolerable at night too. I love the clouds because they are so unusual. We rarely get clouds with no rain, and shade everywhere. :)

      Hope you and John are well and enjoying this weather because it won't last much longer. Blessings and hugs for you dear friend. Take care . . .

      Dear Au fait, I do 'desire' improvements of all who are in need, of all who are homeless, sick or in need of kindness, no I do not need a new car and if I were to come into a windfall, I know a lot of people who would benefit. That is why I will not come into a windfall. I think we talked about this before.

      It was good to talk to you today, I hope you are staying warm.

      We are inside and staying as warm as possible.

      Blessings to you dear friend with hugs.

      Beautiful desires, dear Shyron. I would be so amazing if everyone's desire would be the same as you have indicated here. It would be a different world ... for the better no doubt!

      I share your desires, particularly peace in or lifetime. Well done as always my friend.

      Voted up, awesome, and interesting.

      Desire is a funny thing. One may desire a particular thing or person or situation, etc., one minute, and a little later lose interest in it. Or what one desires may turn out to be very different from what one imagined.

      I don't think very many people would 'desire' improvement in the lives of anyone except themselves. Virtually anyone you ask what they would do if suddenly the received a windfall of a million or so, and they always name a car they want to buy.

      Voted up and interesting and sharing.

      To get extremely cold tonight, 17 F. I'm dreading it. My phone can't be fixed. They don't know what's wrong with it, can you believe? They offered to send it in for diagnosis but I thought for such an old phone, what's the difference? It doesn't work and that's that. Now I have to figure out what to do about that.

      Be sure to bundle up tonight and stay home where it's warm. Blessings and hugs . .
