Seein' Things

Goin' for broke focused on blue

To the cuckoo's nest crazy flew

Mad as a hatter gets me through

Seein' things from a zero point of view

============================

Stripped of ties once seamed true

Doubt dims the light the day drew

Coffee and smokes start to accrue

Seein' things from a zero point of view

============================

In the winner's circle haze you blew

Back on a horse that turned to glue

Dazed and confused without a clue

Seein' things from a zero point of view

=============================

Cool winds blow in hopes anew

Changing the landscapes color hue

Pivot the chasm between real and untrue

Seein' things from a painter's point of view

================================

Genesis rises in a benevolent coup

Friends that stir a warm comfort rue

Sustenance that allows coming to

Seein' things from a new point of view

=============================

...well I always see things from a new point of view when I read your deep profound words Amy. And great writing with this much depth always requires to be read over and over - love your eloquent choice of words here which makes you a true wordsmith of the highest order - and I always admire the way you make me think and feel. I am not 'seeing things' here - this is real and your hallowed hubpage showcases the work of one of the truly great writer/poets here online at this site.

lake erie time 11:15am it's so hot here today that I will reverse the trend - it will be jump into the lake - go for a walk - and then jump back into the lake

Dear Mr. C, It doesn't get better than seein' your point of view on something I write. Your choice of words like "wordsmith", "eloquent" and one of the truly great writer/poets here makes me want to reach for the stars, create a masterpiece, and write a book. In other words, Colin, you make me want to be the best I can be. Your encouragement and support drives me onward. Have a great day in Lake Erie, you lucky man!

Stripped down to bare essentials we do, indeed, begin to see things from a fresh point of view. I love that I had to be broken and beaten to see the wisdom in your words. I would have never found the light if it hadn't happened to me. Great job Amy!

Fom a 'zero point of view' to one that is 'new' (and hopefully positive) is a tremendous step for any human being to take. Congratulations, Amy, on achieving it so poetically.

Dear drbj, I've learned to be flexible. I point myself in one direction and, of course, the path of life is never straight. So, I adapt, as we all must. I can live with that. It never get's boring! Hugs to you

Amy-I really liked the hope that came through in the struggle. Your words are chosen so perfectly and leave us feeling that all will be alright. I hit many buttons on this piece.

Dear Minnetonka Twin, I think for the majority, as long as we are breathing, there is always hope. Even a glimmer can catch fire. Thank you so much and I am so glad to see you again.
