Poetic writings have been around for centuries and have been passed down from generation to generation. It is not just about the rhyme but it is the meaning each sentence has that conveys meaning.  At times, a few words can express more thoughts and influence and impact a person than a book full of writings.

Poetic writings can help anyone to express their feelings; are great to share, and, at times, can even change a person's thinking in a particular situation or circumstance. They can encourage and inspire by adding a positive thought to your day.

Our site has been online since 2003 with short, brief, and to the point, poetry to inspire, motivate, and encourage! Find a short verse to share with family, colleagues, and friends. Either a brief poem or just a verse can help to express positive messages of appreciation, love, joy, and encouragement. We hope you enjoy!
