What makes you happy peeps?
I have been thinking a lot about this subject lately. Yes, it’s because of another piece of content writing, but I picked this one to write because I have been searching for what makes me happy a lot these days.
I have been rethinking my life. I think I’ll add a poem from Intermission Poetry. It’s a bit long.
Last night was a love, or dandelion
I broke it, and threw it out the window
But the window broke,
Since I’d forgot to open it
To my surprise, the broken glass
Disappeared and changed into
A dandelion too
It had multiplied, and so I broke those piece by piece
Threw them out
Not sure, but looked like they fell,
I lifted a glass, it broke
And all the contents spilled out
They flowed in rivulets along the soil
Unbeknownst to me, I had been watering
A willow tree?
It spread out and then slowly drooped, as if
Crying out, “Let me shade you!”
“Okay, I’m good with that.”
And then I went, I left
Walked out the door and didn’t look back
The willow sat there, shading
Caring and cascading
Along the sill
The world outside was no longer bright
Every bit of light was covered, he’d grown so bushy
So fat and rotund
The willow was a monster with a thickened trunk
As soon as I got back, it was still quite dark
Months turned to days, and days turned to night
Another year had passed
And I’d never realized because
My eyes were closed, the entire time
I ran into my room
Laid on my bed
Caressed my head in a pillow unwashed
And then smiled as I cried because
Despite last night, it was all just a dream
I’m tired, and spent, and so,
I left to explore, outside the darkened door
I didn’t look back
Those silly dreams don’t last
Sometimes I’ll start writing and something nonsensical comes out. Its after I tweak it with some sensical – sensible? Oh my goodness. Why is that a word? Nonsensical. It’s not sensible. Should it be nonsensible? Shouldn’t nonsensical have an antonym like sensical? Odd.
I’m being weird. I know. I hope you liked the poem.
Dreams are always so strange. I’ve been having some weird dreams lately. Which reminds me of a favorite song of mine. I’m never quite sure which Heart song I like the most. I’m tossed with Barracuda, Alone (Nancy also plays piano), and the guitar at the beginning of Crazy For You is one of my all-time favorite intro’s. And then there is this one. Okay, I have to post Crazy for You because that intro is just so awesome, and as a guitarist I can truly appreciate it.
I’m back to posting corny 80’s videos. 😀 This reminds me. Heart will be in Dallas on Aug. 23rd at Dos Equiis Pavilion. I would love to see them.
Crazy For You with an extended intro by Nancy Wilson, 1977.
Please have a good day with good searching! 🙂 Goodnight BP
