    dotsJoy Requires No Apologydots
    -------------------------------------------


    At times, our lives float on the ponds of life
    Without a wave to shake our inner core.
    It's in these days when free from stress and strife
    Too many miss the sounds of ocean's roar.
    To listen in the still of pending storms
    Requires concentration skills most keen
    For worry over clouds and how they'll form
    Take most of us beyond the present scene.
    We agonize and fret about the past
    And cannot seem to grasp a moment's peace.
    We worry that the present state won't last
    And never give our minds their due release.

    The lily pad whose roots are held content
    Will bloom without a thought to ask consent.

      i needed something positive today, something to help my mind with all the thinmgs going around in it...and this was it. it gave me some much needed perspective to take another look into myself...and what i've done and what i didn't want to do that i did, and what i really want....and what i need to do. it was a very poetic way of getting someone to take a look at the way things REALLy are and to take a good look at themself, awesome!!

    thnx for sharing this, it really helped me out :)

      Your delightful poem reminds me that some of the best things in life are free, and may happen without any thought or effort on our part; the surprised, innocent look of a kitten; the joy imparted by a beautiful sunset; the beauty of a fervent head bowed in prayer!

    Your lovely verse is far reaching and powerful for such a short piece, and contains a potent philosophical message! Your title is excellent, and carries a classic, timeless message all by itself!

    Outstanding work, lovely lady!!!!!!!!
