Let’s Get Back To What’s Important

To share small joys throughout the day
Who and what is top priority pays
Friendship should develop into mental , spiritual , physical and emotional support
You should strive toward your best life while appreciating all that it’s worth

The sun and moon are individuals yet both are part of Universal order
An abiding of two who are one shall remain unbothered
Before the chaos of makind was trumped up and altered
Soft communication well received beats anything that hollars

Let’s Get Back To What Matters
Be a part of recreation where harmony is scattered
Pay attention to what’s healthy as you make it a habit
Never become anything that leaves you feeling substandard
Reconition of what’s in your fabric comes next
When you’re at your best you’ll get what you deserve and that’s the best

What’s put together on solid foundation will never be allowed to split
Drills come here and there thru any and all abstinence
Alignment forms when you’re mindful mixed with passionate
Everything we touch requires maintanance
Your goal list will be a look of satisfaction

Basic needs are important factors , they are yours to keep
Strength comes from what you eat , think and hear in your sleep
What’s complete has a well balance sheet
This is more than the chit chatter
They hear the voice of reason and good sense
Nonchalant while humble in pure relevance
Matched is a love that loves like you do
Handle each other well rather its zero or 100 proof

Let’s Get Back To What Matters
Experts in both realms should be on your advice pannel
Starseeds are anchored in frequency
Yeahh that’s what Matters and how it should be

Friends of Mother Earth / The Earth is Our Friend

The earth is the garden of creation

Purposefully clothed, with lush, green vegetation.

Roots!

Firm enough to prevent critical soil erosion,

All elements working in union,

for natural joy and satisfaction.

The earth is our friend, we are the children of the earth.

The cyclic function of the earth’s ecology is no mystery,

Like the organs of the human body,

Each working in perfect harmony,

In this our environmental community,

of which the guardians and keepers

are the children of humanity.

The earth is our friend, we are the children of the earth.

The rivers, like blood streams flowing into the oceans,

Returning secretly to the fleshy bowels of earth’s creation,

Evaporating to the atmospheric breath of life,

Sun, moon and stars,

Solid, liquid and gas,

Land, sea and air,

Flesh, blood and spirit.

The earth is our friend, we are the children of the earth.

Like the lungs of man,

The trees breathe to keep the earth alive.

Yeah! The Sun, like a devoted Father

Working from sunrise until sunset

And the Moon, like a loving Mother,

Working from dusk until dawn,

Shining within the sweet embrace, of her children, the stars

The earth is our friend, we are the children of the earth.

If we protect the earth,

Then, the earth will protect us,

Clothe, feed and shelter us.

The earth is the garden of creation.

If we keep the earth alive,

Then we will stay alive,

The earth will keep us alive.

The earth is our mother and our friend!

We are the children and the friends of the earth, of the earth, of Mother Earth

🎓✍🏾There Are All Types of Poems✍🏾🎓

“Personally, I’m more of a “Freestyle” Poet(ess). But from time to time, I follow the norm, and try my hand at various Poetry Writing Styles. It’s always a learning & fun experience!”~Maxwanette A Poetess

🤩There Are All Types Of Poems🤩

Sonnet – a short rhyming poem with 14 lines.  The original sonnet form was invented in the 13/14th century by Dante and an Italian philosopher named Francisco Petrarch. The form remained largely unknown until it was found and developed by writers such as Shakespeare. Sonnets use iambic meter in each line and use line-ending rhymes.

By William Shakespeare

Limerick – a five-line witty poem with a distinctive rhythm. The first, second and fifth lines, the longer lines, rhyme. The third and fourth shorter lines rhyme. (A-A-B-B-A).
