"Moi..."

"Moi..."

An after the holiday visit...

"Moi... "

A poem - created and read to 
"Mad, Mad World".

Another day older - 
grousable, morning aches
behind smiling eyes, 
and yes - a few pains
to walk with
chuckle over
and get by.  

Tools to "play" with
on a host of abnormal things, 
books to wander about, 
"goodlies" to munch over,
"spirits" to quest,
spices to replace and begin anew, 
memories to sit and sip through and 
"stuff" to ensure I do yet other "stuff" too.

Blue-ray-movies I didn't see when,
TV keepsakes to vouchsafe empty eves...
bits-of-binged existence to hide within
and breathe over, mull-about
...leave-a-wish nights.

Sitting and watching the tree spirits
flicker and swirl
dip and twirl
rise and fade to the brightest black
as expanding inward - the child-me
...breathes.

This spirited me back to January, my month of reflection and post Christmas blues. I'm glad I accepted the invitation.

I need to work on clarity...but life IS personal and the sharing - well, nuff said.
Just breathe...you like using pauses like I do..if you like wearing shoes half as much as I do I'd say we were twins..;) lol seriously though a lovely write, you had me reading your reflections with a wide grin..

Think Christmas... sometimes it's little things and how you appreciate them that lets someone smile.
You've kept your optimism over the course of your life it seems like, Chris, and I see it here so brightly.

You touched on many subjects. I liked the places and visions create by the good description. Life is many wonders. Small things gain value with long life. Thank you Chris for sharing the amazing poetry.

Was my honor my friend.
Flickering, dipping, swirling... Ripping and slipping between the words of this succinctly breathed story is a pleasure... I applaud the word choice and use of irony... Smartly penned...

"stuff" to ensure I do yet other "stuff" too.
I like this line as it brings it back to a reality for a brief moment before letting it drift off to the illusive beautiful inner freedom. Beautiful wording.

Child-me .... I like that .. As we live our second childhood.. every breathing,and even those breathless moments have a special and thankful meaning..
Darn those abnormal things..lol, not sure what those are, but I have a good idea.

Happy New Year !..

Thanks for sharing !

Jazzy ♥
