Poets United Midweek Motif ~ Everyday Living

“Your daily life is your temple and your religion. When you enter into it take with you your all.”— Khalil Gibran


“Sit in a room and read- -and read and read. And read the right books by the right people. Your mind is brought onto that level, and you have a nice, mild, slow-burning rapture all the time.”— Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth

    Midweek Motif ~Everyday Living

As individual lifestyles vary everyday living may be different for different people. For some it’s exciting and for others it’s very mundane and routine life.

Once Rainer Maria Rilke said, “If your life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches; for the Creator there is no poverty”.

There are always two ways of looking at an object. Is the glass half empty or half full?
Let’s listen to what you have to say.

Here is a list of links to some amazing poems about everyday living and human existence:
