National Poetry Day poem of the day by Tim Burroughs


Poem of the day is this lovely, positive and hopeful poem by Tim Burroughs of Bristol:




open eyes

warm heart

soft touch

slow kiss


safe house

fresh grass

clean air

clear sea


positive yes

strong no

communication always

violence never


rhinos with horns

orangutans in trees

tigers in sanctuary

buzzing bees


even heartbeat

steady gaze

deep breaths

no disease


seas falling

ice forming

cyclones stalling

forests spreading


mind expanding

consciousness growing

compassion enlarging

people evolving


smile widening

eyes shining

heart warming

soul expanding


one all one

all one all

one all one
