Dreamzzzz101: smiles


a poem taken from the book….

Bad Days

If you can’t say what you mean
Then you might as well jump ship
Like yesterday, even after
I had climbed the mountain,
I could not put Vermont together
Spiritual heights are a downer
These days when what I need
Is a jolt of real blue, and what I get
Are piles of brown leaves
Sliding by at a walkers pace
Incremental evidence that something
Is changing or is spooked and fleeing.

Harvey Shapiro

Thank you Sandy! I find myself saying that to you a lot and never feeling that those two words are quite enough!
