Good morning starshine, the Earth says helloโ€ฆ.

Hope you know how much it means to wish the best for you, because youโ€™re always thought about with love the whole year through. Warmest wishes on Christmas Day!

Christmas is not as much about opening our presents as opening our hearts.

We kiss and it feels like we have just shrugged off the world.

A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.

Good morning starshine, the Earth says helloโ€ฆ.

If The Teasy Fits, Wear It!”

“THE CLOWN!” a poem a.k.a.: ” If The Teasy Fits, Wear It!” (Mon.) December 24th 2018 – less than 1 1/2 hours – before CHRISTMAS, when That Jolly Old Elf, with his clown costume, will squeeze down our chimney – and lay some gifts on us!!

With an inner landscape – of joyous rage,
Our hero paints – another page,
Within the context of a cult,
Our sad, small fellow-is – just a dolt,
Existing-in-The-World – for a game,
Which HE provides! It’s all the same,
For all the other clowns around,
Yet HE, at least, will make a sound,
Protesting – that: “The Shadows” lurk,
The SHADOW-of – this-fantastic-“cirque,”*
Which watches, laughs – and offers carrots,
To each clown! For, we are parrots,
Thinking THIS: “Our lives (are) unique,
And WE can determine – what we will seek!!”
So, the Overshadows – or OVERSOUL,
Is really the one who’s in control?!
But, perhaps, perhaps, my good, dear Friend,
The masquerade – can sometimes end,
IF-we-just-admit: THAT WE’RE ALL FOOLS,**
With addled brains – and blondish curls,
That crown the hopes and dreams we all,
Prescribe-to – to (sorta) make us tall,
And-make-us-think – we’re-better-than-the-rest,
When WE ARE USUALLY – JUST A PEST!
So! CENTRAL FIGURE: “Sad, lonely clown,”
Please wipe-away your silly frown,
And GO OUTSIDE – and-be somewhat-calm!
Seek fractured friends – to-apply some balm!
Kiss your comrades, WITHOUT YOUR NOSE,
And offer them “the rubber hose,”
To gently mas-sage – and-ease-some-pain,
That-is-inherent – in-this – queer-game,
Of cat and mouse – of high and low,
And do the best you can – at SHOW-
ING-that: although-mysterious ALL-this be,
Your clown-and-the-circus might agree,
That – just-to-admit: THE CLOWN IS ALL!
Will-admit – that you can have a ball,
By-being-PATIENCE- HELPFUL-and-EASY,
‘Cause, let’s-admit-it: Life’s-a-TEASE-y,
And, rather than-having tizzy fits,
Let’s have Teasy Lives, us-bunch-o’-nits! ๐Ÿ™‚ – wits

We’re BESIDE OURSELVES; without a prayer๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ

“I LIKE WATERY EGGS TOO!” a poem a.k.a.: “The Only HEARER Her-ere!” Monday: December 24, 2018

We’re just a bunch of baggage! Big-ol’-Christ-MESS-eds,
Out-of-our-minds! AND – “Off our heads!”
We’re BESIDE OURSELVES; without a prayer,
And, a lotta us – just wanna-GET OUTTA-HERE!
‘Cause things ain’t so good – and we need things changed,
And most folks I know – are DEMENTED – and-(pretty)-deranged!
And, especially at Christmas, people ‘re “dropping-by-the-score!”
AND I DON’T KNOW (pause) IF I CAN TAKE MUCH MORE,
Of GOVERNMENT CLOSURES – and TRAFFIC – and MENTAL ILLNESS,
And all those “holiday commercials(?)” about-the-need-for-pharmaceutical-pill-ness!
And, about all I can do – to keep my mind “OFF-OF-IT,”
Is: keep-the-TV-football-games-a-playin” or-else-I’ll-have-a-fit!
I-DIDN’T-GET-ALL-MY-(X-mas)-CARDS-OUT-or-good-enough-presents-to-boot!
I’m just in misery! I-need-some -hooch-up-my-snoot!

But, y-know: If-I-relax-a-moment-
N-go-in-the-bathroom-
N-look-
N-the-mirror,
And smile-&-say: “I LOVE YOU!”- even-IF- I’m-the-ONLY-HEARER,
I guess things are kinda OK – Yea, maybe not as bad as I thought,
And – I’ll just sit here – and-read – and-hope-I-don’t-die-on-The-Pot!*

* – like “they” say Elvis did(?) Gosh, I miss Elvis! Oh, My God – here I go again! I know – I’ll just dress up like Elvis – and go door-to-door, asking for X-mas treats – or something! Who says Halloween has to only come once a year!

“ANOTHER DAY STARTING WITH YOU!ย  YAY!”ย ๐Ÿ•Š

“ANOTHER DAY STARTING WITH YOU! YAY!” a poem 12/24/2018 (Moon)

It’s Christmas Eve – and WE’RE REALLY – TOGETHER,
Throughout IT ALL! – “with-a-kiss-and-a-feather!”
I woke up this morning, with lots-of-thoughts-of-you,
I rolled a bit and smiled – YOU KNOW? I LOVE YOU TRUE!
I called your name – to-express your fame;
You’re in My Heart; it’s just the same,
Each morning here, in-bed-with-(my)-Honey;
I just love thinking-of- my-Christmas-Bunny!*
I dreamed of you last night, playing-catch-outside-in-The-Yard;
We tossed IT – back and forth – we didn’t toss too hard!
You-tossed-me – (your) HOPES and DREAMS;
I returned IT – with some little screams,
And-with LOVE & FAITH & lotsa HOPE!
You threw IT back, with a happy mope!
It’s just all about: TO & FRO;
As WE stand – to THROW & THROW,
With laughs and smiles,
And-your pretty wiles,
Are just-my-just-my-cup-of-tea,
With cinnamon! and-a-little-hon-ey!

And – WHEN WE FINISHED “THROWING,”
OUR BALL AROUND, I’m knowing,
That-we’ll-retire – to-The-Little-House,
And be really quiet – like-a-timid-mouse,
And-we’ll-hold-each-other tight,
And I’ll wish-FOREVER, every-night,
That I get-to-be-close – and-oh, so lucky,
With-my-Honey – my-Sweetie – my-Lil’-X-mas-Ducky! ๐Ÿ™‚ – kisses!

“THIS AND THAT!”๐Ÿ˜

“THIS AND THAT!” a poem 12/24/18 (Monday)

Balancing THIS and THAT?! Well, can you ever really do-it?
Can’t do THAT?-Can’t do THIS?- Call me: Mr. – Nit- -Wit!
THIS says: “Aw, you ain’t hungry!” and “You don’t-need to-eat!”
And your body is THAT, which is sayin’: “How’m-I-goin’-stay-on-my-feet?
If you’re just starving ME all the time?”
You, maybe, need – more rhythm – or rhyme!?
We-can-always get out and work – work-up-an-appetite,
And, then-eat-some-food – and get high as a kite!
OF COURSE, IF YOU’RE R E A L L Y NOT HUNGRY, DON’T EAT; just wait,
But! Don-‘t imagine it’s gonna get probably all that late,
Before your little body’s yearning for some food;
Just-ANYTHING – so your little pookie body won’t brood!
Of course, THIS part of little ol’ you,
Might-then say: “Drop the body; delve-into The-Blue!”
It’s just: a LOVE-HATE kinda state,
We’re in – ain’t bad! Ain’t great,
We’re just HERE, messin’-around,
Hoping Santa SOON – will bound,
In-here-delivering-presents, like Italian Sausage and rolls,
Some steamy, mashed potatoes – with filet of soles!
“No, no!” says Mr. THIS – THAT’s not healthy eatin’ for YOU!
You NEED healthy, lean foods – to be true!”
Then, THAT voice comes – and will say: “Drop-The-Games!
EAT SOME FOOD! Your appetite, it tames!”
It does appear – we better (something) eat,
Or stuff can happen-and-we’ll-lose-sleep,
Or SLEEP SO MUCH, ‘CAUSE WE’VE NO POWER!!
Like Jairus’ little, dead girl, at her Eleventh Hour!*
“They” went to get Jesus – “Please come – or she’ll die!”
“All right!” He said, with a glimmer in his eye!
And, when He got there, he said: “She’s OK;
She’s just a bit hungry – FEED HER SOMETHING – – – TODAY!
A little food’s – just the thing for her!”
And, sure enough – after-a-bite, she-started to PURR!!

fin <3
Oh, and He said: “When she’s done – have her wash the dishes!
And – tell her to get outside a bit more – to fulfill her Christmas wishes!!” ๐Ÿ™‚ – Ho, ho –
