Optomism With A Touch Of The Ordinary

Updated on August 5, 2014

A Classic

My first day

To many other people it's their second

Where people act as if they did before

Not missing one beat

Going through their own rituals

I wonder if they realize

The path they follow

Neither time

Nor day

Are my thoughts free ?

Rising and falling

Hiding behind the white clouds

Scattered high in the sky

Loosely pieced together

By an invisible string

I hear voices of little ones

Talking to their Ma and Grandma

As the two boys bond

Where their sister is happy

Within an arms distance of her sweet mom

What thoughts can I explain

That will speak

Of the life I have uncovered

Following hidden promises

That were made years ago

A common bond

Soon they will leave

Their empty seats lie still

Living off an adrenaline rush

To carry them through

Just as I have found

Their pure energy to tap into

      Gypsy Rose Lee I take a look around at my surroundings and see what is happening right before my eyes. Then I try to turn it into a poem.Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. In time I will get better and better. The greatest pleasure I receive when I am able to take the average day that people all live and spice it up in some unusual way. I get a deep satisfaction I still haven't learned how to describe.Thank you for reading so many of my poems. After days of no comments you surprise me with not one but six. You made my night. Thank you so very much.

      Sparklea Life has so many highs and lows it is always exciting to see what each day will bring. It is always a pleasure to share it with a friend. Thank you for commenting. Looks like rain here but I think we might just miss it.The sky turned dark and I can hear thunder in a distance.

      Sparklea I love to read your comments. I know only to well about computer troubles. I have an older one that acts up every so often. My day turns out to be a long series of activities that are mostly the same . As I look closer I find a few differences that I explore and write about. I will look for my e-mail and will send it again. In the meantime I am still trying to make each day pop. I spend more time thinking than doing because I know the power of our mind can lead our bodies to greatness. Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts. May this day be a spiral of colors like a pin wheel that goes round and round. Each color connected with wonderful moods to push you in all directions.I am encouraging and supporting you in all your efforts. Have a beautiful morning and a fulfilling day.

      Dream On: voted up and beautiful. I could really visualize it all. "going through their own rituals" is such a true statement. I have started a list in my journal of changes I want to make, little ones that eventually add up to not only a great journey but the feeling of accomplishment.

      By the way, I had an email you sent me in my inbox to answer and my computer is acting up terrible...getting a lot of unwanted phishing emails, and a few days ago, like a big 'poof' everything in my inbox vanished!

      If you STILL have that email could you resend it to me so I can answer it?

      It was such a lovely note. It has been so hectic and I am so behind with the hubs...and I am slowly trying to catch up.

      Thank you for this beautiful write. Blessings, Sparklea :)

      Michael-Milec Even though our day might seem common if we look around we can find people that are interesting and positive and channel our energy for the good. Thank you for reading and commenting.
