THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM!


The Root Of The Problem

It has been suggested
That when your life seems without joy
Or laughter, and you have no interests
That you may be root-bound
And need to be re-potted!
What I take away from this
Is the need to nourish the soul, our roots, as it were
To improve our condition; exposing it to sunshine
Or to the warmth of human touch
And to give our bodies, our plants, sustenance
To strengthen and green-up, expose ourselves
To fresh air, drink clean water
And mist our outer leaves
Don’t forget to feed our heads with
Literature, music and friendship
Than may we blossom
And reach toward the sun
Please enjoy this poem from my yet to be published book, A Redhead Looks At 60.
May peace be with you and yours!
Joan
