via Daily Prompt: Anticipate
What can happen?
Who can say
As I flounder through the day
Seeking to be well-aware
of all the good
I’m almost there
and if you look,
Appalling stuff has such a draw
all the news that’s fit to awe
it shouts and beckons
with screaming hues
attempting to distort all views
I choose to find
some wisdom ways
to calm my mind
Perspective and context
a path to grace
Anticipate this joyful place

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!
My formidable tennis opponent.
It’s just a wall
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
