HEAVENLY MERIT!” a poem September 8, 2018 (Saturday)

“Life! It is meaningless – and, mostly, so trite!”

A friend said to me, one Saturday night,

And I simply agreed, ‘cause she wanted to fight,

And argue and argue, ‘til the sweet morning light!

But, you-know! She’s quite right! (pause)

LIFE I S TRITE, WITHOUT MEANING,

U N L E S S you attach – something-special – to your scheming!

IF we-don’t-attach-meaning – to the-events of the day,

They will-NOT kiss our memory – and will-soon fade away,

BUT – IF-we see wonder and magic herein,

Our lives glow with substance, and we’re-free from all “sin,”

Free – from the SIN OF JUST MOPING AROUND,

And-complaining of boredom – of where we are bound,

Disgruntled by-the-options of this human condition;

Reluctant to take up a banner or mission!

LET’S COVET SOME MAGIC, AS WE DRIFT ALONG,

And open our eyes! and sing us THIS SONG:
I sing of how-glorious is a sunshiny day; I sing of The Pretty Girls, who live down the way; I sing, as the wind and the rain touch my face; I sing of your satin & frilly, white lace, As it cascades down shoulders, so supple & tan;

I SING OF THE LIMITLESS OPTIONS OF MAN!

Now! IF you sing well – with passion and love,

The heavens will open – and some GOD above,

Will-shower-you-with-blessings – that you can’t contain,

Such joy and contentment shall come with this rain,

As it touches your “triteness,” as others might see’t,

BUT! Welling within you? (pause)

‘Tis HEAVENLY MERIT! 🙂
fin. ❤
