A beautiful poem - and a lesson in positive thinking!
|Spreading out beautifully,
Sprouting huge and tiny leafy arms
From a strong and magnificent trunk,
The branches of an aged-old tree
Aim prolifically skyward
Toward the glorious sun.
Woody and green, adored by a cloudless day,
The noiseless branches appearing
Jubilant and calm,
For summer’s arrival has replaced
The rough and stormy days
Of recent memory.
During the blistering heat of day
And the cool, heavenly nights,
Where pleasure and pain are a
Frightful combination of both,
A proud man, woman, or child
Must remember to live life positively,
Hoisting their face and arms skyward
Like branches, against all elements of Nature.
Take something positive away from every situation –
A positive, hopeful, and winning approach
For the best is yet to come!
