One of my first memorized poems:
“Come to The Garden in Spring.  There is ‘wine’ and ‘sweethearts’ in the pomegranate blossoms.  If you do not come, these do not matter; if you come, these do not matter.”J. Rumi

“CUTIE PIE, MY, OH MY.” a poem, a.k.a.: “Life of Pi(e).” Sept. 30, 2019 (MOONday)

My baby is a CutiePie; dat’s all I’s gotTa say ’bout dat;

She has got a “cutie smile,” with a littleCutieBabyFat.

BUT She’sNOT fat or plump , youKNow SHE,

Is perfect OhSoCutie, just fo’ me,

I’m so excited when SHE’s around,

I take her hand, andYouKnowWhereWe’reBound.

That’sRIGHT, we’re headed toAsecludedPlace,*

So thatI can cuddle”Cutie” inAcutieSortAspace.

I LOVE CUTIE; I really do;

AndI’LL LoveHerForever, and Cutie too,

Will love me forever, ’cause CutieAndI fit,

For my name’s PI(e), and I love EVERY BIT,

Of my boot iful Cutie, yes, it’sTimeFo’ CutiePie,

Whenever I see her, I greet her with a SIGH,

I take her in my arms, and we do cook together,

Heatin’Up, not too abrupt, in any kind o’ weather.

And when we’ve done our “heatin’Thing,”

We go on the kitchen ledge, where cooling will bring,

Us to The Point, where we’ll be REALgoodEatin’

CUTIEPIE’s [always]InMyEye,

OurLove,

There[Just]Ain’t,

No beatin’.

“HOW YOU PLAY THE GAME(S).” a poem September 30, 2019 (Monday)

“HOW YOU PLAY THE GAME(S).” a poem September 30, 2019 (Monday)

Dilemma relative to The Game: “DESIRE” can cause a lot of pain,

But alsoToo TheGame “ASSUME THE BEST.”

Please, DearIshall explain:

Take, e.g., The Game “ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE,” whereManySeeGood result;

Still, it has its “drawbacks,” since pickingTheBestGame canBecome a lifelong cult.

The key, I think, is HOW to play, NOT which game you select,

And a fairly popular game these days is: “I’MaMONG THE BLESSED ELECT.”

I think, perhaps, you probably MUST playSomeGamesEachDay, going in & out,

And, OF COURSE, you can switchGamesIfYouWish, it one of them makes you pout.

But HOW YOU PLAY MAKES A DIFFERENCE, even “DESIRE” canBeAgood game,

Despite TheBuddha WhoSaid: “DESIRE”s bad, & “ATTACHMENT”sAboutTheSame,

Where SINNING THE LEAST yields “a win;” some sinning’s probably OK.

The Main Thing (again): PLAY RELAXED and you’ll be able to play another day.

The game of “WAR” can even be [a little] fun, but, again, you MUST relax,

And another good strategy is: “playing with humor,” whichHelpsSome to “TheMax,”

For LAUGHTER USED amidst The Game, HELPS EVERYONE BE “a winner,”

For it makes you aware YOU ARE HUMAN and NOT some terrible sinner,

But JUST ANOTHER PLAYER, playing your best hand,

And giving the other players a hand too, so ALL take a stand,

And smile together and laugh together and pat each other on the back,

FOR IT’S GOOD TO HAVE OTHERS, SO YOU’RE NOT ALONE,

in The Game of “TOGETHER, WEhAVE NO LACK.”
