Empowerment Project--The Pond

The Pond
By Michael Joseph Kullik

As I sit by the pond
and watch dragonflies fly by
and frogs call to each other

I notice how the rest of the world
does not touch my sense of being
I am in a world all my own

Just me and the living creatures
sitting by the pond just being
quiet and watching life as it happens

The pond creates a beautiful world to be in
when the rest of the world is too hard for me
The dragonflies fly by with grace and speed

Water is what most are made of and here I am
In a place where the pond provides life
and peace for me and the living creatures

Today isn't Monday, I know, but sometimes you've gotta have a little wiggle-room when it comes to sharing uplifting things, don't you think?  

Michael, this poem is gorgeous and  peaceful. Things have been hectic for me, lately, and reading this soothes me. I know I'll come back to it when I need a calming thought, or am feeling sad, to remind me to look for peace in nature.

Thanks for letting me share it and for being incredibly brave and inspiring.


  1. This poem is BEAUTIFUL, Michael. I am someone who also finds peace by surrounding myself by nature and so I can really relate to this. Plop me in a forest or on the mountains or by a clear water creek or serene lake and I can literally feel all the negative energy leaving me. Thanks for sharing this!

  2. That was lovely---such an evocative poem, Michael! I love the imagery and agree with Alina--I get such a sense of peace just by reading. Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. Very serene and calming-- I needed this today!

  4. This was a beautiful poem, Michael. I find peace in nature too! YAY for the inspiring beauty of nature!

  5. Thank You all for your nice comments.

    I am glad the poem has helped.

  6. This poem captures perfectly a sense of quiet calm and belonging that being with nature can bring - truly lovely!

  7. This is lovely. So soothing and peaceful. I really enjoyed reading this. Thank you for sharing this with us. This was the right day and time for me to read this.

  8. So glad you all feel the same way about this lovely poem.

    Thanks for stopping by, Michael. Lovely to see you over here. :)
