WHAT’S IT LIKE? (OSI)

it’s like:


learning it isn’t too serious

hearing they really liked it

not wanting to go, then it’s cancelled

starting over

finding a twenty in your jacket pocket
on your way out to lunch

being vindicated at last

a breath of fresh air

you never went

it never happened

I always dreamed it would be

I have something for you at "Keepsakes". I hope I used the word karma correctly.

Beautifully expressed. "Not wanting to go, then it's canceled" resonated with me...The flow of thoughts and what's it like behind it all is evocative.

I was stumped with this one, you got just right, though.

Sylvia K said...

I love it! Beautiful words and thoughts! Thanks, Deborah!

Sue said...

Yes!! So many good descriptions of that feeling of good fortune, of the sunshining on us after a long week of rain... I like the first line especially "learning it isn't too serious."

Jim said...

Hi Deborah, these are all nice things. So if I just played golf every day and ignore the other stuff it will all work out!

BTW, I am in the process of cleaning up my office. Most every day I work at it I find money. Several hundred and I'm not nearly done. My grand daughter would like to help me, for the money.

Yeah, it's just like that! I remember one day many years ago when my ex and I had not a cent and I didn't have gas for my car. I found that $20 bill! My theory is that it's the same $20 bill, that floats around changing everyone's life, if they'll let it!

Amias said...

"it never happened" oh if this was so, "i always dreamed it would be" a line that could easily set my soul free, and bring me some peace!

Neverending story said...

Very good, I needed to read it a couple of times for each to sink in, such an evocative selection of scenarios.

Quiet Paths said...

So creative; I really enjoyed this.
