Beautiful World

When I was younger, my friends and I had a saying…We were just out to make the world beautiful. 🙂  Yes, I will admit, I was a cheese ball even then! But I have learned something….that geeky little metal head, with her big hair and black leather, recorded some awesome things in that little black book with her poems in it…and those awesome things, made me realize, the world was always and is always beautiful.

One of the most beautiful things I have witnessed, is the beauty through the eyes of another.  This poetic journey,where all you wonderful people have shared so much with me and in turn, let me share with you.  Lessons, secrets, hardships, wins, losses….and we have done this through the written word, through bleeding pens and broken hearts.  I consider myself beyond honored to have shared those things with you, and today, I hope to continue that journey together.

Today we are talking about building things, construction, and stuff like hard work and rewards.  The best part of building something with friends, is when you get to take a breather, put your feet up, and regard what you have built.  To Brian and Claudia, who have been busting their butts getting this ready for us, I raise my glass, and hope you enjoy the rest 🙂 Join us for our “trial run” link up today at 3:00 EST and get a feel for the diversity that’s flowing!

Beautiful World
You know that feeling you get,
After one too many glasses of wine
On a late summer evening
When twilight teases the horizon
And fireflies start to glow in the background.
When voices are in harmony 
Though they seem a touch too loud
And the flames of the fire
Somehow dance even faster.
You can hear the hum of the electricity
Riding the overhead cables
You can feel the breeze
Even before it tickles the nape of your neck
Slightly off balance
But never feeling more in tune
As you sway between the worlds
And you feel the pressure, the stress and the worry
Slip beneath the currents of the river 
Overtaken by the sound
Of the laughter of friends
As they raise their glasses
And you raise your own
In the anticipation
Of all the good to come
Here’s to you, you cruel, beautiful world, and to the friends who help me to survive it…Welcome to d’Verse Poets
Pull up a chair, raise your glass, and let’s see how the journey continues!  Power to the Poets!
Remember…the celebration OFFICIALLY begins July 19th with our link up at 3:00 EST
Hope to see your there!
