Original and Unique

I am always trying to describe myself. There is no one who is the same as me. There is only one me, which you could be thankful for today.  I sat at work and a friend text and said a customer had asked for something unique. I text back… ‘That’s you’ he is like each one of us Unique. So today’s inspiration comes from all things that are original and unique.

Something Original and unique

Is me

Every poem written

By me

Every conversation

With me

Every tear shed

Comfort me

Every kiss is

Passionate me

Every story told

Every poem shared

All my happy thoughts

Are unique to me

and I share them with you

Unique Sunset

The evening’s crepuscular charm

With is whole setting sun

A brilliant pale yellow orb

Slowly lowering itself in the sky

Pouring out brilliant orange hues

Mixed with dark reds and browns

Filling the sky like molten lava

Painting the sky magnificently

Threads of light mingling with wispy clouds

Each layer, overlapping the brightness

Delicate and frail as they linger in the sky

Sitting patiently, waiting for the moment

For that one photo, that changes my world

Crisp air floats downwards, like a deflated balloon

The sky is captured, that moment in time

There will never be an identical sunset

Twilight has arrived

Wrapped beliefs

Crisp brown paper

Tied with string

Beautifully wrapped

Sitting, waiting

Inside a surprise

A secret waits.

Pulling the string,

It falls to the side

Delicately unwrapping

The paper to reveal

A box, closed tightly

With a clasp on the side

Opening slowly

Contents exposed

Full of beliefs

Empty to some

Each unique

In that we trust

Wrapped beliefs

We make our own.
