Materialism and consumerism run rampant. One of the things we talked about in the wake of my mother’s passing was how the generation that grew up in the 1930’s is disappearing. With them goes the ethic of not wanting for more than what we have. When we experience our place and time in the world with indigenous qualities unique to it, it changes how we experience the world. That is a valuable lesson to be learned from those who went before.
Embrace The New Dawn. By CpSingleton © 2015
Breathe like summer’s lighting up your skin.
That tingle in your cheeks to signal
A smile is about to begin
To take over your features.
This is what defines us from
The darker shadow creatures.
Don’t rely on your bank balance to bring you joy.
Numbers can’t replace a gifted soul,
Nor the shiny toy,
Or worthless rock.
No man found enlightenment
From sweating over stock.
Instead, open up your mind wider than a dragon’s yawn.
Disregard last night’s teachings and
Stride into your new dawn
Ready to enjoy your day.
Because, in a flash that is your life,
It can all be taken away.
