If You Are Lonely
If you are lonely, watch the birds In their freedom of flight...
Feel the warmth of the sun kiss your cheeks and smile.
Visit the shore and listen to the waves sing sweet songs.
Close your eyes and smell the fragrant seasonal flowers.
Transport yourself through Time’s great abyss
In memories of streams that flow with a youthful glow...
Dive in pools of aqua waters through your mind’s eye.
Delight in the breeze’s playful mood
As lush verdant trees sway in tune.
Listen to the purr of a contented cat in your lap.
Write a letter to yourself and promise to answer...
Better yet write a poem, one that will linger long
In someone’s lonely mind.
