Education Poetry from Year of The Poet (Vol 33)

Gratitude

Enough … I have enough
don’t forget even for a moment
urging me to see what is real
conscious awareness of insight dances around me
a blessed being
trying to learn gratitude a lifelong lesson
invisible bonds, fragile, and resilient
Olympic proportions of abundance
now I hold this feeling of gratitude deep inside

Thankful, Grateful, Nature Poetry with Kimberly Burnham by Kerstin Wrba on Unsplash

Nature

Evades simple definitions teaches enjoy life’s complexities
drumming, thrumming, energetically buzzing
unusual strands create survival and pleasure
challenging my adaptability
a home, a place of healing, love all around
teaches me to appreciate the rain
it is my nature I seek to understand
on a walk in the trees I learn be tall reach for sunlight
now I see the edges where nature blends with me

Light / Darkness poetry with Kimberly Burnham by Rinck Content Studio on Unsplash

Light

Education rarely happens without light
darkness’ opposite draws in joy and details
understanding symbolized a light bulb coming on
creativity in the light to read, see, and share
awakening to natural light within each of us
the firelight, shimmering bioluminescence, moonlight
insight when sunlight comes on inside
one dream letting in and out lights swirl bright
now I see the beauty, color, and variety in me
