No Post. No Problem.

No post for today, but have no fears! I’ve always got a little something waiting there to cheer you up. Click below to look at my archive of past Monday poems, or be sure to look at my Pinterest board for new inspiration for your yawning soul.

As always: here’s to hoping your day flies right on by and that you’ve got something cold and on the rocks waiting for you when you get home tonight.

Don’t Go Quietly Into That Good Morning

Rise
writhe
and riot

We don’t have to settle for
lives of regret
longing
and quiet

We can still
seize
grapple
and grasp

lost tendrils of
hope

the us we
remember

those fleeting shades of
our past.

Mornin’, folks. Looks like Monday is at it again. Still, despite being stuck on that weekly wheel, we don’t have to just go with the grind. Wrote a little something that I hope reminds you that there’s still plenty of time to do what you wanna do and be who you wanna be. That’s right, it’s just a lil’ Monday motivation from the likes of me. Hope you enjoy.

As always: here’s to hoping your day flies right on by and that you’ve got something cold and on the rocks waiting for you when you get home tonight.

Enough Said

Stuck In The Middle

I’m in some strange state
between life and death
some strange place between
failure and success
it’s the middle ground of
life
and middle age is rife
with battles old, new
challenges never met
where each and and every
morning
I war cry a sigh and raise
my standard, my banner, of
regret.

Time for some Monday mourning again. Reaching that middle ground and feeling like, perhaps, there’s a little something to be said for it.

As always: here’s to hoping your day flies right on by and that you’ve got something cold and on the rocks waiting for you when you get home tonight.

Out Of Office

A little bit out of the office as well as a bit out of my mind this morning, folks. Don’t you worry though, I wouldn’t leave you on a Monday high and dry. I’ve got plenty of updated pins on my Pintrest board that I’m sure will hit ya just right today, as well as a link to all my previous Monday poems.

Faith

They say
have faith in
creation
your fellow man and
your place in
life

But I’ve
walked around
this wide world
and I’ve met men
both of cloth
and laws

The only things
I put faith in
are
geysers,
guns,
and dogs.

Well-Meaning Monday

a283b29f3fd3374662d8d2f699d6aa2d

No good deed goes unpunished
no dreamer finds time to sleep
and we of the tender hearts
are only
that way from being beat

We’re taking the high road to our
personal hells just
digging our own graves while
trying to dig them their wells

They say the road to hell’s paved with good intentions. Personally, I think that applies to most highways, too. Yet to find someone making an early morning commute who wouldn’t rather be some place they ain’t.

Monday Mullings

You imagined something different
you imagined something more
and this
couldn’t
wouldn’t
can’t
be the way it all turns out
with you just
rising
writhing
full of doubt
and yet you know you’ll
carry on,
that you’ll keep on
marching
driving
fighting
until your card is drawn


Wondering a bit about the word in that title? Well, ‘Webster’s (1879) defined mullings as “to work steadily without accomplishing much,” which may connect it to earlier identical word in athletics sense of “to botch, muff” (1862). Related: Mulled; mulling’.

There you have it, folks, I found the perfect word to go right along with Mondays. It even sounds good together. Would ya look at that?

A Middle Aged Monday

f1f12d7e2b80589fa910ed5e40fa578f

Everyone tells you to
grow up
but they don’t tell you that
you just grow old
And no one seems to mention
That the pound age doesn’t come
prepackaged with sage wisdom
It isn’t just as if you
get better without trying
as you go

So hold on to those tendrils of
youthful vision
and never forget that
in heart
you’ll always walk
alone

Well, another Monday and another little musing here from me. This one was inspired by a passing of another birthday and I thought I’d just send it on and out to you. Started as a scrap and add a little bit onto the end but, for now, this is how it goes.

As always: here’s to hoping your day flies right on by and that you’ve got something cold and on the rocks waiting for you when you get home tonight.

Put Monday In Its Place

Well, it’s here again folks: Monday. And guess what else is, too? Me.

That’s right, I’m back at it. Welcome back to a long series of posts that have been a long time both in the coming and in the making. To start off today, let’s keep it light as we get back into each other’s company. Click the link below to check out my Pintrest for some much needed motivation, or the link below that to look back at all the Monday’s gone by to prep for the ones to come. New features to keep in mind will the requests and a few reviews of items to make your workday a little less, well, work.

As always (and happy to be saying it again) here’s to hoping your day flies right on by and that you’ve got something cold and on the rocks waiting for you when you get home tonight.
