Humility

Having a low opinion of or
underestimating one’s importance,
modesty can be
intensely attractive!
Literally “low” in latin: humilis . . .
Importance is over-rated.
Teachable, a lifetime goal;
Yet humility is not belittling oneself.


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


Solitude


Spirit and soul thriving
on a mainline injection:
life according to gut-feel.
Intuition tuned to five senses,
talking only by necessity.
Upward-focused gratitude while
directing attention outward, I’m
elevated by nature abounding.

All of these are full of powerful thoughts and lessons, and my favourite between these is "humility"... The message you are giving us is for lifetime, humility is not belittling oneself... This is a very important message for the young readers specially because the way our modern generation moving it is important that they understand the true meaning of humility...

Then comes "solitude"... People think solitude is because the person is lonely but I don't think it's true, solitude serves as great healing partner, when we are too much in the chaos of life, solitude can take us through the tough times and inspire us again through the beauty of nature...

Once again some outstanding examples of your creativity and your commitment if inspiring others through your words... You are simply the best one...

Sincerely

Was my pleasure and you are welcome.
Wow...you have given very thoughtful lessons here which we mostly deny because of their simpleness.

This one is very nicely written.

Moving on to Humility,
here the message is very important for us, the young generation who seems to be thinking of humility as nothing but a joke, but if this principle adopted, it can bring harmony and peace in one's live. It is the need of hour to understand its importance.

Then comes Solitude,
Many times in our lives we have to face crises, difficult situations which sometimes seem impossible to solve, in all these solitude can help us to solve them all. It is the best cure to our remedies as it brings wisdom and patience.

In the end I would like to say that these rules must be read by everyone, they are an ultimate tool to achieve state of happiness. Thanks for writing such wonderful rules.

yes, Humility...not teachable, it is innate.

and i like the idea of living life by the gut, the feel...
my favorite is the first one...great word to use for the acrostic..and the poem reflects the down to earth, creative, loving nature of the poet herself.

What I like about your acrostics is they are very natural, and you forget they are an acrostic. I also like the way you choose to do two words sometimes -- it really broadens the form.

I am the same way. If I start a sonnet, and it sounds like a recipe, I scrap it.:)
Great Spirit, I liked that one.
There's some wisdom here in your two acrostic collections.
