Poetry Jam "Just Being"

Would you like to hear me read my poem?

Check this out on Chirbit

Just Being

You neither question,
demand, nor solicit answers

but entreat me toward
indulgent solitude,

encourage me to enjoy
extravagant simplicity,

and convince me to relish
the gift of just being

This poem is so very peaceful. as I read it, I breathe out, breathe in, just enjoying the moment of 'being.'. A pleasurable read, Margaret.

There is something quite divine about the simplicity of 'just being' isn't there. Beautiful, pics and poetry.

Early morning or evening... Lake Michigan is a lovely shoreline walk. I highly recommend it :)

This it simply brilliant! Seems like it should be an easy thing to accomplish, but learning to "just be" can be so very difficult.

The images perfectly fit your poem, Margaret...or is it the other way around?!
