Good Morning

I hated getting up in the morning when I was in school

giving up delicious dreams to attend classes wasn’t cool

when I was on my own and working nearly every day

dragging my body out of bed in the morning wasn’t child’s play

but

now that I’m retired and have no place I have to go

I wake up early to watch the sunrise’s beautiful tableau

Lighten Your Load

are you carrying a rucksack

of worries?

a load of emotional rocks?

a stack of negative stories?

stuck in a mental box?

then it’s time

to lighten your load

and shine

cast away

your worries

enjoy your day

there’s no guarantee

another will come your way

Seeking Serenity #1

when it comes to

seeking serenity

each one of us has

a choice to make

a path to take

sometimes serendipity

determines fate

on our trail

resulting in

an eternal

fairytale

Stupid Things

You see it all the time

people doing stupid things

like making batches of slime

there’s no end in sight

of people

who aren’t too bright

we live with them every day

shaking our heads in wonder

at their disarray

they’re at home and on the street

doing dumb things

and being indiscreet

it’s not about being bad

we all do dumb things

like following a stupid fad

it’s about the realization

that stupid things happen

in any kind of situation
