Ever More Precious

I’ve thought
my journey to be solitary;
among the many.
I’ve heard
and seen the world uniquely;
a vivid design .
I’ve felt
comfortably insignificant yet embraced;
Nature knows me.
I’ve learned
to recognize the what “is”;
not “should be”.
Love is ever more precious.

If you’re new to dVerse or the quadrille, it’s simply a poem of 44 words, excluding the title. It can be in any form, rhymed or unrhymed, metered, or unmetered. You MUST use the word “embrace” or some form of the word in your poem (not simply the title).

    The feeling of being embraced …. what we, each of us, need.

    There are lessons to be learned in our enforced solitude, new ways to reach out and touch someone.

    A short poem filled with wisdom. To be insignificant yet embraced, to see nature and what is, and to recognize the importance of love. Lovely!

    It is what it is, and if we focus too much and change we will never be able to rest… good writing.
