Turn - revised

Recommended Posts

To turn away from the madness of the world;

Turn and walk away from it.

 

To find the solace your soul yearns for;
Discover it beside the lake in serene stillness.

 

To hear the bird fly past,
Watch the blossoms swaying,
Breathe in the fragrance of the earth.

 

To turn away from the madness of the world;
Turn and walk away from it,
Claiming the peace your spirit seeks and deserves.

 

To receive love, you have to give it...

Nice Douglas, " to hear a bird passed". What a line, I heard the bird as I read it. When I typed the quote I realized I used a different spelling for " past" and I had to stop and think about it a second and I think I'm right.. I think past refers to a time long gone where passed refers to the action of passing. Anyway, I really liked your poem.
