A Lump In The Throat

.

“You too?”

She asked Ruth.

“How do your poems

start out?”

“They start as

a lump in the throat,”

she said.

Poem:

.

today is a happy day
why ? ? ?
because my attitude said so
a decision to go with the flow

today is a glorious day
why ? ? ?
because my Higher Power made it that way
it even gets better when I pray

today is a perfect day
why ? ? ?
because my God doesn’t make any junk
even better since I stopped getting drunk

today is a beautiful day
why ? ? ?
beauty is in the eye of the beholder
the Pieta was carved from a marble boulder

today is a magnificent day
why ? ? ?
because the Great Creator gave us words
spectacularimpressivestrikingglorioussuperb,
majesticawesomebreathtaking, splendiferous

today is a wonderful day
why ? ? ?
because it is my day and that’s the way I want it
hope you can do the same for your day

In One’s Own Life

.

“Poetry is nothing

if it exists

only in books.

One has to find it

in one’s own life.”

serene and peaceful
natures majesty displayed
tranquil summers eve

Poem:

In and Out

.

in
ones
own life
the ebb and flow
the coming and going
growing to physical maturity
hopefully becoming wise along the way
trying to resolve life’s mysteries
quickly the time has passed
celebrating or mourning
reflecting on events
it’s God’s time
over and
out
