Concurrence in times of rust by Emerald Proctor "It left me to question the tolerance of my own tradition."

I was asked something today,
and at most I could only leave the subject at an indifferent tone.
It left me to question the tolerance of my own tradition.
"What is happiness, what is truth?"
Imagine getting inquired with something so philosophic,
at such a time of disarray.
Happiness-- such an abused term.
Every human is in pursuit of it,
it is natural,
it is what we strive for.
Yet, being faced with the blunt, simple question;
"What is happiness?",
I stumble.
"What is truth?",
the ability to think-- existence.
What is thought?
It is everything that we (as humans in nature) prosper in.
Random doting on a snowy Spring day--.

Open A Book by Jane Toni-Marie Baskwill


Open a book
And you will find
People and places of every kind
Open a book
And you can be
Anything that you want to be:
Open a book
And you can share
Wondrous worlds you find in there
Open a book
And I will too
You read to me
And I'll read to you.

Mother's Wishes By Jennifer James Corr

Here's wishing you a Mother's Day
That's filled with every pleasure,
And a future that's as happy
As the memories you treasure!
Mother's Day...
a time for warm thoughts
and fond memories,
for expressing
the feelings and words
that often go unspoken,
for letting
those special people
in our lives know
that they are loved
and appreciated -

Peace by Larry Jason Hartline

is not the imperfection -finder
of the world. Peace
is the error -mender
of the world.
is the dream -beauty
of ancient dawns.
is the vision-dream-choice
of modern noons. Peace
Silences the nightmares of the mind.
feeds the dreams of the heart
