Diversity

by Bette A. Stevens

Splendor of countless pigments
In gardens they combine
Echoing grandiose harmony
Serenity you’ll find

And so it is with people
Of every thought and hue
Diversity’s resplendency
Reflecting me and you

Comments on: "“Diversity”: Poem by Bette A. Stevens" (66)

  1. Beautiful words! What a lovely idea and the perfect time to espouse it Bette. Mother Nature conveys subtle messages of diversity and harmony yet mankind chooses to impose their own…living in consonance with each other is the only choice of modern times. May this splendor spread across the globe!
    Thanks for highlighting the cry of the day. Stay blessed.
