For a Shy Friend


You look so tense
holding up your shell
tired and and so lost
thinking shell is all you got.
But shells are fragile
And plastered smile
was never ever your style
So put down those arms
look inside your heart
do it for me please
I can't promise you the stars
But for sure what you find there
will be beautiful,
worth sharing and a treat.
in your core
lies the store
Of eternal happiness
Just explore...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
