“Change Your Perspective” Poem of the Day (2022)

Change Your Perspective

By Ashley O’Hare

“Change your perspective.”

Perhaps the best advice

one could receive.

An Autumn lead is an eye sore—

a nuisance to a neatly cropped lawn.

As a home owner,

you will stress over disposal.

Come back down to Earth

and try again through the lens of a child.

Now you’ll recognize the colony of leaves

as pieces of a game.

Pile them together,

jump in,

and try again.

The leaves were never the problem.

We create problems, 

then we make ourselves solve them.

That is not maturity.

That is idiocy.
