#243 A Poet's Thought

This is not David but an integral part of India

Our trip to India was a bucket list highlight last February experiencing everything about this country from the people to the food to the historic sites.  An added benefit to our travels was the Overseas Adventure Travel (OAT) companions who spent the 3 1/2 weeks with us either racing through the streets on a rickshaw or setting afloat in a houseboat in southern India. They were a delightful, funny and engaging group and we have kept in touch with many of them after our trip.  
One gentleman, who always made me laugh, is a gifted poet who has graciously shared his exceptional poems with me.  Below is one of his talented creations.  

By David Sandgrund
You must understand the whole of life, 
not just one little part of it. 
That is why you must read, 

that is why you must look at the skies. 

That is why you must sing and dance, 

and write poems, and suffer, and understand, 

for all that is life.

Thanks for reading #243 of 7777.
