Why Worry?

worried smiley face

What good does it do
except hang around
like super glue
causing nothing but
jitters in the belly
upsetting the gut

Your head’s a tornado
spinning
up a storm
Confusion
Concern
Anxiety
aren’t the norm

Emotions pour out
with implacable power
Oh, how you wish
the tempest would cower

What good does it do
besides make us blue?

By writing this doesn’t mean I never worry,
in fact, it seems there is more reason for it, lately.
But I think we all know it does no good.
So here’s to moving forward with Hope,
Faith and Optimism. 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by
and have a wonderful day! ♥

Scrabble Soup

First you need a thought,
nothing fancy
and it can’t be bought,
then add a spoonful of emotion.
There’s no magical potion,
although, I have a notion
you could include humor.
According to rumor,
laughter’s the best medicine.
It always has been.
Yet, contrary to giggles,
start some tears flowing
with a dash of melancholy,
or if you’d rather be jolly,
Don’t be coy,
Sprinkle in some joy.
Now, to spice up your mixture
(I think you get the picture)
toss in some melody
with your favored tempo
and let your feet dance.
Feel the rhythm and
give romance a chance.
This is where you improvise
(write between the lines).
Follow your feelings.
Close your eyes,
peel off your disguise.

This is your recipe and vision.
Follow your bliss
and for a final touch,

Seal it with a kiss!

Who Knows? :)

question mark

There’s no point to this poem
just something to do at home
passing a little time
with a few silly rhymes
you know how it goes
everyone knows
putting pen to the paper
cleaning house to the later
adding laughter and smiles
good for many miles
chatting about that
sharing coffee with Matt
  acting like a chef
cooking with Steph
always busy, not idle
running errands with Michael
I have to be true
  there’s so much to do
it’s been delightful
not frightful
simply entertaining
while ascertaining
though nothing is wrong
it’s time
to say
so long!

Bananas (reblog) :)

Swinging from the chandelier

I’m overwhelmed from toes to ear
I know it’s time to walk the frog
Can’t just sit, type and blog
I’d love to dye my hair bright red
Did you hear what I just said?
Reaching for the coffee cup
Time to fill and pet the pup
In the wind, I feel so free
Would you like a cup of tea?
I’d love to swim and read a book
It’s five o’clock, what shall I cook?
Staring at the vacuum cleaner
I wonder why the fish are meaner
Planets aren’t aligned, at all
Let’s go shopping at the mall
I could talk and talk for miles
but only if you share more smiles

(I need a dose of “silly” today, how about you?)

Smile :) (re-post)

Just when you think
all is worked out
A wrench is thrown in
creating new doubt

Your mind is befuddled
Your breathing sporadic
Bitterness comes a knockin’
Life becomes problematic

But don’t think you’re incapable
of crawling through the haze
Don’t think you’ve exhausted
all the feasible ways

Even though life’s been
a true humdinger
In your dark and sour mood
You must not linger

Get up, dust off
Stop your yammerin’
or you’ll start your family
and friends all a clamorin’

Does absolutely no good
to frequently niggle, so
when you’re feelin’ down,
form a grin and try a giggle!

(This is an oldie
from February of last year,
but I thought we all could use
a smile today! )
