Audrey writes poetry to fulfill a need and release confined feelings. She won her first poetry contest at age 7. We all have a poem to write

Nature's living things are inherently patient.

Allow Time for Things to Unfold

Patience, the necessary ingredient to complete all tasks

The trees grow as they want to

Each creature lives by its cycles

Impatience is alien to nature

Patience matters in all of life

The birth of a baby

The growth of the harvest

The healing of the heart

Caring slowly

The art of patience

The greatest power manifesting love

We are the master of our own destiny

Cultivate patience for yourself

Only time brings growth

Acceptance and faith

The keys to patience

The moon and the sun

Awaits its time to shine

Patiently waiting its turn

Ministering light to all

Patience, the brother of wisdom

Nature, time and patience

Three great physicians

Allow time for things to unfold.

Impatience is a Quality That's not Only Alien to Nature, but Life-Threatening

In your life, for anything worthwhile to be accomplished, you need to be patient.

      How very true this is. Nature is the ultimate scholar. It breaks my heart to see the destruction fires bring. Thank you my friend.

      Thank you Dora for confirming the value of patience.

      Hi Mary

      So nice to see you again. You are obviously destined for inner peace and supreme joy. These attributes come to us through awareness of our own weaknesses and the determination to work on them in spite of everything.

      This action spells "humility" and you've got it my friend!

      This is still an area I need to work on.

      You've reminded me today how necessary patience is to not only achieve what I want from life but to find peace along the road.

      There are so many lessons to learn from the natural world; the secret is to be willing.

      Lovely thoughts, my dear friend.

      Dear Audrey, thanks for reminding us of the importance, and actually necessity, of developing our ability to be patient. There must be a reason why so many people are born with a tendency to be rather impatient than patient. I guess it is once again a matter of being moderate and able to go with Nature's flow.

      You are so right Audrey! Patience is so important for all of us and it must be cultivated consciously . One who masters this , can never feel deprived or depressed.

      What a beautiful way to define Patience with this wonderful poem!

      Thanks for sharing!

      This is a beautiful message, Audrey. When I look at massive trees I think of all the years and all the factors that they withstood.
