I Shot An Arrow

 

I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.”

smells good

stimulates the imagination

pleasures for all senses

seeing you again

dreams relived

old feelings renewed

Poem:

.
trying to find something positive to write about
living in a world full of anger and doubt
unreasonable fears motivate the crazy
for many it is a case of just being lazy

smile, assume a posture of gratitude
shoulders back, chin up, display a good mood
being thankful is the beginning of every good day
what can you really do about it anyway

know that there is a positive side to every lesson
accept, only as long as you live is it your possession
set your goal on making this world a better place
share the favor of a beneficent God’s grace

could you be something positive to write about
you can be if you just do your best, day in and day out

clearing winter’s mess

careful to save the new growth

spring is but a dream

Poem:

.

where is the fine line of sanity
or is insane not a place at all
not me, invisibly cloaked in vanity
delusions acerbated by alcohol

did I drink too much and became crazy
or was I crazy and I drank too much
could have done different but was too lazy
should have but I really needed a crutch

would have but I ignored my mother
make amends, clear the wreckage
learn to rely upon a Higher Power
be prepared to carry the recovery message

a simple program for complicated people
how we were restored to sane thinking
