Diversity

What’s trash to some might just my treasure be
It takes all kinds to make this world go ‘round
There’s room for all to blend in harmony
A song with just one note’s a boring sound.

A canvas splashed with many splendid hues
Diversity adds such a zest to life
Just think of all the beauty we would lose
If palettes but with monotones were rife.

The structure of a verse sings sweet its song
On me it has a powerful effect
Yet verses free so gently float along
They’d cause a butterfly to genuflect.

'Though not the same they share a common goal
…Portraying for the world what’s in the soul.

Wise words Denise and beautiful poetry.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

I agree that diversity is what makes this world a place to live and enjoy...
Imagine what it would be like...
If we all were boy!
Good Job!

Amen! Spoke my mind with this one, Denise!

Excellent - being addicted to FV - I find it really refreshing to come to my second home and read the lives of my friends through sonnets and sestinas and villanelles and lovely structured verse.

Big  !

Kamla, dear
Speaking of structured verse......
Do I have to say it again?

Great thoughts, well spoke, Denise. Personally I think we should all be the same, only different.
