Tales To Spin


“If you are a dreamer come in

If you are a dreamer a wisher a liar

A hoper a pray-er a magic-bean-buyer

If you’re a pretender com sit by my fire

For we have some flax golden

tales to spin

Come in!

Come in!”


― Shel Silverstein





contrived situations

falsehood bordering truth

people, places,things changed





what you think you see

the chameleon changes

natures hiding place




let go or be pulled along
replace it with something better
does every life need a theme song
are we marked with a scarlet letter
seeking positive reinforcement
family and friends the preferred source
proud to receive a personal endorsement
stepping stones to  life’s best course
the devil dines on the negative
set your table with the bright optimistic
the attitude, good or bad, is never inherited
allow the mind and soul to grow synergistic
focused on the here and now
have faith, you do know how.
