What is yours?
There are the thinkers and the soft spoken too.
And then there’re the loud ones, it seems quite a few.
There are the happy and joyful, who’re just filled with glee,
The serious who pontificate … “to not or to be”!
There are those very weary and tired so it seems
And when I’m around them, I’m yawning in reams.
There are those always angry and spit-firing mad,
The lonely, disheartened, bedraggled and sad.
The Nature of our nature is unique to us each
A prune, grape, or raisin, an apple or peach.
We may think and act different, still each is the same
Because under our natures we all of us came …
… From the very same place,
… The blue planet in space,
… it’s home to us – The Human Race!
So please no more fuss
Because the US is … ALL of US!

Great poem Penny! I cannot imagine you ever breaking any rules (lol). 🙂
Well maybe just one or two or …giggle! 🙂
This is so inspiring! What a thoughtful post.
Thank you Tebogo. I appreciate your kind words very much!
You’re welcome 🙂
Some picturesque typology!
There are rules to poetry? F’reals? What happened to free expression of the soul? Rules, schmules. Pfffft. 😛
It’s all human nature.. Thank Goodness we are all so different but all the same!!
AnElephantCant argue with Penny
Rules are made to be broken
So he seriously agrees
With everything here that he sees
She says the words that need to be spoken
Your eloquent poetic comments are wonderful, as always. Thank you so much! 🙂
I had written a couple of paragraphs of a poem in response to this, but I accidentally closed the window and lost it 😦 If I remember I’ll post it for you on here
No worries, you’ll write something better! 🙂
Maybe eventually lol
Probably, certainly, definitely, absolutely! I like my “-ly’s” better than yours! 🙂
🙂 possibly, hopefully
What? Poetry has rules? 😉

One or two I believe! 🙂 xo
You’ve identified all of them! 🙂 Nifty lines on the nature of each.. And that last pic of the blue planet is simply great.
