I may have posted this one before, can't remember. Jamsbo, this is for you and for any of us writers that are feeling blue.

Optimism (Pantoum)

May I rise above negativity
swell with optimism
ride the tide
race to shore

Swell with optimism
be a sunny day
race to shore
kiss the sand

Be a sunny day
warm slow and strong
kiss the sand
may I rise above negativity

Very good. Rise above negativity is just what I need to do at the moment.

Perfect pantoum, with a hopeful message. I don't know how it is with others, but optimism and pessimism go hand in hand for me. Pessimism seems to come naturally, I have to fight for optimism. This poem is like a prayer, and a good one.

I'm not familiar with the "Pantoum" structure but you use it very well to great effect. Well written.

Lovely sentiments :)
