Monday Poetry Prompt: Respect

Sorry for the late prompt. This week let’s write a respect poem. Remember, respect is both a noun and a verb. I look forward to finding out what it means to you in the comments below.

  1. Aretha said it well
    Singing it from her soul
    it was about a man
    but, you know, anything goes
    R E S P E C T
    just what does it mean to me?
    Responding with care
    Elegantly commenting
    Stating with caution
    Placing others feelings in perspective
    Edging to the other side with grace
    Caring before conveying
    Taking the time to listen
