Manic Monday: Marbles

Page copy protected against web site content infringement by Copyscape
Manic Monday's are MoMoLicious
Marbles Scatter
Marbles scatter in my head
the rolling hardly stops.
Until the tiny pill I take
dissolves and finally drops...
Then quiet comes and
I relax and things don't seem so bad...
and I can sit and watch my life-
finally return to glad.
The sweetness of the summer sun
and soft winds of my face
I can rejoice in simple things,
no longer lost in space.
A gentle kiss, a fiery touch,
the breath a lover takes-
each and every passing hour,
sweet memories does this make.
The perfect dish, a well placed laugh
a friendly passerby
All these things were masked to me-
I was always one marble shy...

Such a pensive mood can be the best time to produce the best of oneself. This is so good...

Love the poem and I recognize the mood.

Eerie that I am starring at a bag of multicolored marbles that I found yesterday while going through the boxes of small treasures that I inherited from my Mom recently. They were one of the things I decided to keep for myself as I passing things out to my girls. I'll keep them in a crystal bowl on my desk.

My girls were like "What was Grandma doing with marbles?" "Why do you want them Mom?"...perhaps her and I feel that feeling of missing something too...a marble?

Thanks for sharing this moment.

The photo is terrific and sorta eerie too.

It's so beautiful, but melancholy, too. "always one marble shy"
