WE are WE

A Little Bit About this Poem.....

We are not all of one mind therefore we can improve and move towards success of our own kind. However, we all share the same feelings. Like happiness vs sadness; gentleness vs strength; pride vs shame; and love vs fear. Here I explore our shades of feelings. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing this piece of prose about you, me and we.

I am gentleness, in the way of a nudging wet nosed baby rabbit

I am compassion, as I tenderly kiss a scraped knee

I am encouragement, as I am the illuminating high-beam shining out of a lighthouse into the dark blue sea

I am affection, as I cup your elbow ever so softly

I am self-acceptance, when I see your wide ear to ear grin

I am kindness singing, when I give directions to a stranger as I run late

I am fun, when my squiggly fingers splurge through the squishy paint

I am sadness, when I am heaving a belly sob

I am loneliness seen, when a baby’s pink foot is untouched

I am healing hands, when my touch effuses comfort and warmth

I am understanding, as I stop and listen to the million memories that sing their stories in my mind

I am easy going, like a Husky enjoying a cuddle

I am connection, when I whisper a heartfelt thankyou

I am watermelon pink with arms radiating rosy warmth

I am joy, as a dog runs out into the sunshine

I am laughter, like when happy frogs are tickled

I am me.

I am you.

We are we.

      I am glad you found this poem delightful, Tom. It was as Debangee said, on the more uplifting side of our qualities, which is a welcomed change. All the best to you and your loved ones.

      A beautiful poem, ThreeKeys. And as a friend told me a long time ago, a poet is a 'sensitive,' and a sensitive has within him or her the aptitude to become a spiritual medium. It was that initial advice that helped nudge me towards mediumship and, later, non-sectarian spirituality.

      I feel those innocent moments we experience in a split second can be reminders me that beauty still exists in our world.And I am very grateful to still feel and see that way.
