Seein' Things

Updated on July 15, 2012

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

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

      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.

      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 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

      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 Bill, You inspired my words with this piece. So, considered it dedicated to you.

      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!

      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!

      ...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
