Self

“Loneliness is

the poverty of self;

solitude is

the richness of self.”

change
move on
do it twice
try to or else
switch

springs chilly drizzle
sky covered by low gray clouds 
first robin appears

Poem:
.

quarter of a century in recovery
every day a new day of discovery
learning to accept all of life’s changes
enjoying the chance to be outrageous

I pray every day to walk the walk
sad are those who just talk the talk
it is easy to accept when God is in control
body, mind and soul He makes us whole

sobriety promises us many things
a chance to unravel the heart strings
a new freedom from past regrets
friends who we can count as assets

an attitude that includes no fears
a desire to be of help to our peers
happy, happy, happy for others
a choice to be part of a band of brothers

knowledge of feelings that keeps expanding
finding a God of our understanding
a kindness we are glad to  repay
living this life no other way

The Most Powerful Drug

 

I am, by calling,

a dealer in words;

and words are,

of course,

the most powerful drug

used by mankind.”

Rudyard Kipling

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

drug

chemical influence

brain neurons interrupted

abnormal escape from reality

dope

reading the fake news

politics

opinions galore

Poem:

.

April showers brings May pollen
the early worm evades the robin
nature both gives and takes away
man gifted by a beautiful bouquet

can we ruin it all with plastic pollution
are there consequences for fooling evolution
when man has expired there will be no more time
there will be no winners to punish the crime

hopefully we’ll find where the soul resides
nature will overcome those pesticides
the philosophers will discover what it is
everyone will know all of the answers to all of the quizzes

chortle, love, do the next right thing
pray, prepare to welcome another spring
