Poem #10 -- Life Lesson



Be careful when
indulging in
extravagant
self
pity.

The Universe
is more than glad
to give a new
per-
spective.

A hole in your
hot water tank...
now there's a REAL
life
worry.

I played with rhythm today.
Seemed appropriate since the hot water tank played with the rhythm of my LIFE.

  1. I hope your day got better. It has rhythm. I hate when the universe decides to give a new prespective.

  2. Oh, boy, Mary Lee! I'm still so overstretched that I find it hard to do much more than get my own posts up, but I've been wanting to say how much I appreciate your comments--and the knowledge that someone's reading them rather faithfully!

    Love your cupcake alphabet (smooth as buttercream), love your reverso (so so difficult, I found), love this blog. Thank you!

    I don't have trouble with the beginning of the day but always with endings. This year we were supposed to close with singing, but we haven't sung really in weeks. I suppose the good news is that it's getting squeezed out by the need for more and more writing time....

  5. Ugh on the water heater!

    Great way to use some of that frustration in your poem. Hope the next of melody is better.

  6. Oh My... We had a flood three weeks ago when the pressure regulator tank sprung a leak... shot a six inch hole in the drywall... flooded most of the basement. Still have all the boxes from the basement upstairs... sorting, tossing, and organizing! A geyser... Glad you caught this early!
