Poet’s Corner – My New Year’s Wish for You

Pick your paint,
To paint your ponies;
Perched within life’s carousel.
Learn that life is heaven now;
And not living it, is hell.
Live deep within the tulip, sweet;
And breathe it’s fragrance, fine.
Then exhale all its essence on
This spinning world of thine.
Leave the darkness to the night;
And choose your star shine, wise.
Forget about the words of man;
They’ll only tell you lies.
But moons, the suns, and mountain’s peak:
Will sing your heart and soul–
Awakening your waters, deep–
Shedding all mortal control.
Fly through the clouds without a fear,
Searching for the sterling’s shine.
Dance to every fiddled tune;
Partake in living’s wine.
Tune your songs sung out of key;
So you’ve lived for more than naught.
Your song, indeed, your legacy:
Reflects all that you’ve caught.
Yes, bend the truth, if you’ve a mind,
To soften what might hurt.
Rememb’ring that we’re mankind:
God’s savory dessert.

This is my New Year wish for you,
In hopes it sets you free:
To fly the heavens with a grace,
Complimenting every sea.
