A New Year's moment


It is a beautiful world

When you look at it with dreamy eyes

But when tears blind you

you welcome cloudy skies

When your soul is cracked many times over

and you no longer believe

in the luck of four-leaved clover

When your heart has been  broken

like glass into these many shards

well, then maybe

you need a kick n the ars

Of course, that is easier said than done

I wouldn't let anyone

do that to me...

and  I myself am not an acrobat

So how to handle all that?

You just put one foot in front of the other

and stumble along

all the while humming

to the tune of Armstrong's song.

 

Happy New Year to you and to all

may soft clouds catch you when you fall.

I have a soft plush frog that my Mom gave me about ten years ago...he sings "What a Wonderful World"...that it came from her gives me inspiration that it is indeed a wonderful world! She passed away in 2007 and when I'm feeling blue I touch the little frog's hand and he sings and lifts my spirits....love your poem!!!

Gina, Happy New Year! So good to have you start off the year with such an incisive poem! I've been more gone than here (could use a few snatches of Louis myself.)

On the plus side--I've signed a contract with Crimson Rose Imprint (F&W Publishing--WritersDigest et al) for a romance--turning in line edits tomorrow or Thursday!

Hope you're well--hope to be back here more by the end of the month. Meanwhile, all my very best, and loved "Satchmo sings". (I'm working on a story called "Like a Horse Saddled" that probably has much the same attitude...)

And the world becomes unhinged and falls of a cliff, and rolls around and around, till you wake up on the other side, that's where I thought you had dissapeared to Gina, but Armstrong has some good songs don't he, Happy New Year.

This just needs music, in my head i sang/read it to Queens, friends will be friends tune :)

Happy New Year to you, Gigi. I don't think you know how apt and timely are your words considering what has happened to me recently. Read "Martini Memories" or check out Facebook if you don't know what I am talking about. Love and best wishes,

Regis
