Some Fairy Dust 25.08.2009

My guru says not to go
for quantum leaps, effect
changes incrementally; it
does not work for me, I’m
either deeply depressed
or totally joyous

After attending the most
boring meeting ever, an
all-time low, could not wait
for incremental joy, called
up my three-year-old self
to march to the library

Then we went to collect new
T-shirts, Cindy in pink so I
started singing “Let’s take a
drink, a drink, a drink, to Lily
the Pink, the Pink, the Pink
the saviour of the human race

For she invented medicinal
compound, most efficacious
in every way” dancing while
swinging my new T-shirt, getting
in everyone’s way, Dr Jokweni
begging some of my energy

I threw him some fairy dust,
his face beaming now, a big
smile, while I’m running
through my day!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
