Extraordinary Doesn't Come Easy

Updated on February 2, 2016

Blah Blah Blah

Puffy white clouds scattered across the light blue sky

The bright sun heating up the ground

Everywhere you look

Calm and sereign

No animals or birds in sight

What happens next will take your breath away

The sky darkens and within minutes

Lightning strikes

A loud crack echoes

The ground shakes and heavy rain comes pouring down

From here on

Constant booms of thunder and the pounding of water bullets

Cover every square inch

No place is safe

No where to hide

Well to me this is what happens

When I wake up in the morning

A peaceful day under way

Then the news paints a bleak future

Where the stock market has dropped

Unemployment on the rise

Horror strikes

An evil man shoots at innocent people

Many wounded and a few dead

What just happened to my perfect world

A stampeed on all my ideas and ambitions

So different and unusual

Contrary to the world I believe

How do I accept the truth

Then create with thoughts and inspiration

That make the world dazzle in the golden light

People helping people

Each of us striving for good intentions

Then carrying out our actions

To bring about the most beautiful sight

Families proud of their children

Children respecting their parents and grandparents

Working to provide

A home not a house

Of love and imagination

Where life is worth living

That when the early light breaks

People are all talking

The ground hog didn't see his shadow

That means an early Spring

One more day to be excited

Feel the breeze

A little wind picks up

Listen to the wind chimes ring

      Events keep happening and nothing is ever predictable. Nicely penned. Love the ending the thought of those wind chimes chiming.

      DDE We can't stop bad people from doing awful things. What we can do is bring out the best things in life and spend our time helping others with the good we have found. Thanks so much for reading and sharing.

      Events happen and coping with such experiences is entirely up to us.

      PoetwoPoem The positive can push us towards great things. Where the negative will bring us down and tear us apart. Thank you for reading and sharing.

      True, life is unpredictable -- from the weather to the stock market but "People helping people" helps us achieve the extraordinary no matter what. Love the positive push.
