I felt light yesterday
the sun shone and called me away
Today jumped in and turned it all inside out
the sun lurked sullenly behind the rain clouds
and it’s not easy to have the sun out there
all lurk-y and sullen
just beyond reach
And it’s not easy to be at odds with it all
marching to a different drummer
I have an element
I am not currently in it
It is somewhere I have been
It is somewhere I aspire to be again
Meanwhile, I will be where I am
and soak it up because I can
Preparing for a plot to hatch
What would be the mood to match?
Who would find the point to catch?
Remember, to remember
don’t get too far ahead
don’t catch up to the future
stay right here instead
I want to get back to the mind set when I was a kid and didn’t worry about who got elected and what could go wrong because of it.
I would like to be informed but detached from the outcome.
Bewitched, bothered and befuddled am I!
It is very good to be feeling good right this minute —
I suddenly noticed today
— and what a find —
that nothing hurts
in body or mind
— and how often does that happen?
I suddenly realized
I’d better give a thought
to the lovely and sublime
that surround us
all the time
Even though the crass and cruel
scream for our attention
seems like the wonderful stuff
deserves at least a mention
Feeling disgruntled from time to time
…….and I don’t realize just what gives.
Feeling gruntled seems better, by wide and by far;
but I’m not really sure what that is.
Obviously, I had to research the meaning;
and it’s ” humorous, pleased, satisfied, and
So to wish to be gruntled is in no way
Never heard that word said; not one time; never said it;
But I will; very soon, and I shall not regret it
So, anyway……I got a tetanus shot booster three days ago and my arm has been hurting ever since! Finally hurting less and I now have hope that it will stop hurting very soon. Also have been feeling a little achy/fevery and a lot tired – maybe related, maybe not. I don’t know if I’ll ever get another one. I bet if you got a deep wound of some kind they’d end up giving you the shot again anyway. Ah, well, maybe it’s all worth it.
How this relates to the flower pictured here, I cannot say. Maybe it’s a reminder of the cycles of life and this too shall pass and stuff like that. Yeah, that’s it!
