“A QUESTION ABOUT THE DAY’S DIRECTION!” a poem Wednesday: 12/12/2018 – “Karaoke Wednesday” at The Railroad Blues in Alpine, Texas, U. S. A.

IT’S JUST A DAY – LIKE-ANY-OTHER-DAY,

You ask: “How was it?” (and-I’m-likely-to-say:)

“It was just PLAIN WONDERFUL, how else could-it-be?”

“And – What does THAT mean?” you’re asking me.

Well, it simply means: most-o’-the-folks-I-met,

Today-were-kinda-happy; yes-you-can-fairly-bet,

That I’ve no better gauge, with-which-to-answer-your-query,

Because each day, for me, is really kinda blurry!

I get OUT THERE – and I meet the folks I know,

And I meet some new acquaintances, and I talk with them just so,

And I try to insure – to make ’em laugh, just a little,

To make ’em feel relaxed, and maybe play my cello fiddle,

And MAYBE – sing a love song that will warm their Hearts a bit,

Or – read a piece of poetry, one that might just fit,

Into their precious SCHEME OF THINGS, to smooth a dreary day,

And-I-sometimes have some origami – a gift for them, I pray:

That I might-just warm their Hearts – for to warm them, then I DO,

Also warm my little soul; we’re ALL just passing through,

And hopefully-no-one’ll-shoot-me – or yell at me TOO loud,

And IF-I-can-touch-a-soul-or-two, I feel mighty proud,

BUT! I don’t-almost-always-succeed -to help folks on their way,

But-I-try – sometimes – to-insure-a-bit, that-I-might-“improve(?!)”-their-day,

To the point – that-when-they’re-safely-HOME, and someone asks THE QUESTION,

That they MIGHT say: “The day was good!”

We-can-all-LEAN-in-That-Direction!
