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
