Arduous Jubilation


The mind of a crazy person
A happy place to be

Only in the crazy
Is the mind truly free

No inebriation
No mind numbing drugs

Free of life time hang-ups
No slipping on the rugs

Dancing in my folly
Laughing at the moon

Caring less what happens
Acting a buffoon

Suspending time in bubbles
Colors can be clear

Exploring less than normal
That’s what I’m doing here.

Ha ha
Free to be me.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
