She sat there pleased to be away from the human bustle
I knew her, not for long but i knew her
Through the slats of the park bench her little boy showed me the clover flower
he had picked from the lawn
He hung it over one of the slats to show me it in wonder
I saw what he saw and through his eyes I became a born again child.
About this poem:It was the first time i had seen through the eyes of a child.
I would use that power to light your way, and watch your road unfurl.
If I changed direction of the hands upon the clock,
I would let them spin us back in time and at our meeting they would stop.
I'd change the words I said that day to truth instead of lies.
I'd tell you that I love and loved what I see in your eyes.
and if i had that chance again to hold you on that day.
Id never let you go again and watch you walk away.
And that would change my future sky's to blue instead of grey.
About this poem:Things to change if things could be changed.
But this sight seems so slow I am starting to fear
There once was a time when only a day would pass
And a posted poem would not see the day last
Now it seems they stay on here for too long
Days turn into weeks and it seems just wrong
I’d love to see some action again
So whip out your pen and scratch your brain
Now I don’t mean one writer to flog it hard
And post twenty poems all on one card
But let’s have etiquette and start some fun
A challenge I say is what needs to be done
So I propose to set the tone
Anyone can enter but best be alone
“ IF I COULD CHANGE ANYTHING WHAT WOULD IT BE“
And please respect others and what they see........
About this poem:All writers have i ideas.............let’s hear them.......Regards Nu
Personally I think that I would change history
I would go back in time when the continents were new
And discoveries were bold and adventurous too
When the natives of the lands respected their earth
In tune with nature they had known it from birth
When the sky's were blue and the fields green
And the rivers were cleaner than I have ever seen
I'd change the way they would interact
Discover the secrets to a sustainable act
Respect all who pass their way
And return that respect in a positive way
Acknowledging all that is required to survive
In a new land learning to stay alive
Understanding the guardians and their belief
Honouring their history and the words they speak
Accepting to change only but themselves
Strangers in a land belonging to someone else.........
About this poem:A little bit of insight and respect a long time ago would obviously given us a different outlook now ..............Indigenous peoples have been caring for their lands for centuries with very little impact .......fast forward now and I see an earth poisoning itself .............Anyway this was just a challenge and here's what turned out .......Regards to all NU
