we all dance to a different drummer
with greatly varying propensities
that makes our world so intriguing

for if we were all the same
that would be a shame
monotony and boredom would abound

embrace diversity
for it adds colour
get curious and explore!

dVerse, 44 words ‘drum’, Mish – pexel image


      • Well said on your part as well.

        We’re like pieces of a huge puzzle. Every peice is vitally important in order to view the finished mastepeice. If even one peice is missing, you can still see the relative version of the end result, but it is not the version that was created. In order to see the true masterpiece, we need all the puzzle peices in order to see the end result.

  2. Exactly! It always amazes me how much time and energy we tend to spend trying to get other people to think and act like us. They aren’t us, so how can that happen? Diversity is what makes life interesting, once we can stop being afraid of it. Loved this poem, Kate!

  3. You just nailed it Kate! Like Maya Angelou said, “It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.”

  4. Yep, Kate, and here’s to the most bracing diversity of all, that of the mind. Far more interesting than the superficialities that distinguish us.

    Even when I disagree, listening and interacting is good exercise. Occasionally it leads, even, to changed minds, both mine and theirs.

    That’s not the point, though. However, dancing through life’s delightfully endless library, is.

  5. Beautifully said.

    And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colors. Indeed in that are signs for those of knowledge.” – [30:22]
