Poetry And Obama
Let’s have a poem for the new year. Well, not necessarily a poem pertaining to the new year but a short poem to start our poetic expression off to a good emotional start. :-)
I read recently that President-Elect Obama is a fan of poetry. I think having a president that appreciates poetry and in fact, reads it, is a plus for our nation. There is more to any part of life than the unemotionally logical aspect. Hurray for Obama and our country. What a refreshing change. Just my opinion, of course.
Back to the poem. My new one for today and year is:
Love Is Now!
Yesterday’s love is like yesterday’s hug -only a memory.
Tomorrow’s love is like tomorrow’s hug -only a dream.
Love is present – a gift that only can be given in the present.
Love is now!
As you can read, the poem is about love. I like to think of love in terms of poetry. How about you?
