Ah! This is a delightful poem! I haven't read your others yet, but I think you probably make it look easy that takes a fine skill to do. What the world becomes when we sing and laugh: you peg out a few examples and then for the ending, wham, the artist tells us what it's like way beyond, where things create themselves, one just needs to be there by dreaming .... I love this lighthearted poem because those thoughts can sound so heavy in prose, but heavy won't get us there will it ??
This poem makes me feel so happy inside! I sing all the time in the shower! I've caught myself singing bits of different songs while I'm in the shower. Most recently:
"Twist and Shout" by the Beatles a few verses from "The Necromancer" by RUSH "At the Hop" by some fifties band "Boom Boom" by the Animals Etcetera etcetera, lots of others, Even a few songs that I just made up or some poems that I wrote that I made into songs.
The shower is the place I can sing with confidence. I believe that I actually sound good when I am in the shower.
Sing with me world! Rock and roll hoochie koo! Lawdy mama light my fuse! If I had a hammer then I would hammer all over this land. You're knocking me out right off of my feet! She's buying a stairway to heaven! When the miller told his tale, he face at first just ghostly, turned a whiter shade of pale! Eight miles high and when you touch down...
ROCK AND ROLL IN THE SHOWER BABY YEAH YEAH I LOVE IT ALL
You know Tif, infinity is also inside of you. When you turn from the earthly plane and seek within your spirit becomes free as it truly is. I like your song and it's simplicity and complexity all wrapped together. Thanks for a fun read! Dan
Hee hee! First of all, I love the description! That alone put a smile on my face! You and your pink princess tennies hahaha how cute!Next, this is a lovely little shower song! The one word I think of when I read this is perception. Everything lies in perception and how one views things. If you look to the brighter side, the world is kind and life is good. If you fall victim to pessimism then nothing ever seems to go right. Is the glass half full or half empty? I think it is easier to fall victim to pessimism but most certainly the optimistic views are much more worth the fight to keep them. A lovely little tune here. Take care.
Just the boost I was looking for today Tiff! What a happy and care free song. I bet if we all sing that we will light up the world with our smiles as you have in your hometown. this was so cute because it was silly. Great write!
You are right... this is "a smile so wide I just got caught inside" I love that and I enjoyed this tonic of a tune. Great way to start the morning on a high note. Smile, laugh, sing, dance, dream.. By golly, I think I will.
Nice little ditty. For me it brings to life the idea that things are only as good or bad as you make them. This little song, of course, is on the good side of things. I really enjoyed it. You brightened my day... thanks
