 I don’t know what you would call this, except totally BIZARRE!!  I wrote it early New Year’s Day morning. …I was being my usual silly, goofy self and came up with this poem within a poem (and we didn’t even drink New Year’s Eve! …lol!).  Just was having some fun writing and decided to share it!

      A Beautiful Year

It’s two thousand and five
A great year to be alive
   (me thinks)
New things for which to strive
   (me drinks
     to that)
Not the time to take a dive
   (you sinks
     or go splat
      not too cool)
Everything will not jive
   (it stinks
     so chew fat
      don’t be cruel
       give a smile)
Hope that we all will contrive
   (no kinks
     give a pat
      live the golden rule
       change the style)
Help spread happiness and cheer
No more bitterness and fear
Make it a beautiful year!

Cynthia, it’s nice to see you dabbling in multi-form poetry. This piece is quite unique and yet, it still shows what is most important in it, and that being, looking towards a wonderful new year. Wonderful write. Thanks for sharing, my love.

I love you,

Great message, Cynthia. Maybe you could sell this to a rap "singer" and make a lot of money. Thank you for sharing. Love and peace to you. Regis

Cynthia, I found it to be filled with carefree silliness that we all need from time to time.
I embrace such whimsical writes, for they embrace me.
Here's wishing you a glorious New Year!
