Anything New?


another day of oddities and surprises

mother nature dittos her wrath

angered winds leave a destructive path

yep, the weather continues to amaze

fickleness is obvious its intent is hazed

the population grows so do our woes

invasions, famines, strikes, and disease

sadly, mother earth has skinned her knees

the clock may say it's in charge

but our journey in time still at large

let's noodle the whys and ways of the world

seems the value of life caught in a twirl

wonder where common sense has gone

time to soul search places far and beyond


Keep on keepin' on

Yes Franci there is something new in this for me.

Initially I was puzzled by the line  Let's noodle the whys and ways of the world.

All became clear when my dictionary informed me that noodle could mean to improvise or play casually on a musical instrument 

The line then became clear and full of imagery of playing almost any instrument while mulling over problems stresses etc.

 Some Music has been described as being the age of enlightenment.

The line certainly was for me.

If 鈥mother earth has skinned her knees鈥, then it鈥檚 us who pushed her over.
