Make hay when the sun shines bright

I write a lot of poetry in the first person. Often, it’s just a choice I’ve made because I feel it will speak to you as you read it, in a more personal way.

This poem is one of those that IS personal. ‘Dear Change’ was the start of this particular journey, and the poem below reflects the lessons I’ve learned over the past few years.

 I hope you enjoy reading it.


 

We must make hay when the sun shines bright,

Let our dreams change hue in the silver of the night.

We must take a turn when the path is blocked,

And explore the lanes we usually do not.

 

For the path that’s familiar might lead us away,

From roads we must travel to help us find our place.

 

We must use cover that suits the weather,

Wear cotton when it’s hot, greet the rains with a bright umbrella.

Walk in the sun till it warms our skin,

And makes our hearts happy so we smile from within.

 

We must be open, have a mindset for growth,

Get into the water and go with the flow.

 

We must make hay when the sun shines bright,

And let our dreams change colour in the silver of the night.

WE must be the change and let life lead us on,

To fields of plenty and the warmth of the sun.
