Cats and Rainbows

Would seeing a purple cat be strange

Would you pet it if it came within range

Or would you simply laugh

And go back to drawing with spirograph

Could you sing a song out loud

Upside down in a big crowd

Or would you completely fall flat

Creating a rainbow colored splat

Let your imagination run free

No limits as far as you can see

Accept the truly outrageous

Because fun can be contagious

Stuck In A Dream

abstract art
was on the walls
the floor was slowly giving way
to a pool of bright clear water
shining like diamonds on the sand
and people I didn’t know
would stop and say hello
while dripping paint behind
in a funny sort of silhouette
then the moons did catch my eyes
as they rose next to the sun
the art got up and walked away
and the water flowed up to the sky
leaving me behind
in an unknown hallway
feeling about to cry

Your arms are around me again
Like you had never even gone
You gently caress my cheek
As we watch the growing dawn
You softly kiss me once
And my heart skips a beat
I always dreamed of this moment
For when we first would meet
But my imagination
Is just carried away again
I am lost in the daydream
And can’t help but grin
Truth is less romantic
And leaves me wanting more
But for now I only cry
Remembering you at the door
Someday we may have our chance
To explore our love another time
Until then I will embrace you
In a moment that is sublime

Day 24 – 100 Days of Happiness

Today’s happiness was a sigh of relief. I have a vivid imagination…which in turn means when I worry I can cook up a million terrifying scenarios as to the outcome of a situation.  My best friend went silent a little over a week ago and my mind went wild.

My friend and I have kept in close contact for a while now… usually at least 3 or 4 times a week we will text each other, if not talk too.  After the third text was not replied to my mind went into overdrive.  I had every horror scene playing through my thoughts.  I believe I called 4 times at different hours to try to find him, but each call went straight to voicemail.

I tried to calm myself reminding me that he said he cracked his phone screen… maybe it is his phone is out of commission, or maybe he met a bear on a mountain trail?  Do you see how my brain works with the worry… I credit my mom for a lot of it.  She was a first class worrier too.

But today the imagination was shut down by the vibration of my cell phone.  My friend called and I no longer could blame the evil clowns for his demise.  He was fine, although has a cold.  It was his phone was broken and had to wait for payday to get it fixed.  You know… that makes sense.  The worst case scenarios can be tucked away for now, until the next thing happens to make my mind wander…
