Life's Sweet Buffet

Life is a bowl of cherries With loads of luscious cream It's a pocket full of peanuts Or rowing a boat downstream! Like snapping a turkey wishbone And getting the larger piece It's much like going parasailing Or no longer being obese! The soft cool breeze of summer The warm sun upon our skin Or a happy little birthday party Some well played violin! Like a happy family vacation A trip to the stars and back A piece of scrumptious apple pie A tasty midnight snack! Life can be about all these things Just put your cares away Ignore all those little wee problems Enjoy life's sweet buffet! © Jack Ellison 2014

    A great Life is a happy go lucky Dragon, or a penguin who can fly, It's a Hubby who gives you ideas... Or a great big bowl of ice cream or a luscious cherry pie. It's sharing all the things you love with everyone around. It's interacting where there are friends that abound. It's knowing that you are loved and that you can love. Life is reading Jack's poetry and then spinning your own yarn. Life is always there before us... until... to heaven we can apply. Then it'll be starting it all over again... in the venue in the sky.

    Just let go and read. I really enjoyed the way the angle from which you wrote this. Refreshing, invigorating.
