My Soul, My Senses

.

“Like poetry,

in times of intense emotion

the image returns to me.

Like poetry, it stroked

my soul and, by turns,

lulled and stoked my senses.”

Poem:

time to duck into fantasyland
what to do when reality sucks
reality, where everything fun has been banned
and even the the worst will cost you big bucks

let’s all go down the hole and meet the Mad Hatter
a place where there are no lines of race or creed
a land where politically correct doesn’t matter
where victories are won and no one has to bleed

then there are the delightful perks
the chocolate ice cream has no calories
lose weight by thinking about what works
toys run forever, no need for batteries

no greed eliminates the need for police or politics
everyone you meet wears a smile on their face
rewards for everyone with no need to do tricks
taking only what you need, remembering God’s grace

awakened by the boombox thats a mile away
oh what can I do, just hope and pray

Mind

As to the pure mind

all things are pure,

so to the poetic mind

all things are poetical.

drink

be merry

celebrate the occasion

know when to stop

imbibe

sympathize with me

misery loves company

give me sympathy

 

poor me, please pour me a drink

I hate it when you are right

they loved with a heartfelt emotion
being together was very appealing
a pleasant and enjoyable feeling

for each a mutual devotion
two hearts as one were beating
they loved a with heartfelt emotion
being together was very appealing

lives moving in concerted motion
lives with shared purpose and meaning
lives enjoy as if they were dreaming
they loved with a heartfelt emotion
being together was very appealing
a pleasant and enjoyable feeling
