Insanity is searching for ten different ways to do the same thing

before ever trying any of them

and knowing beforehand that they all will fail

so you end up just sitting there staring

at this to-do list from Hell

paralyzed by the sense that there is something here

to be responsible for

because wouldn’t it be better

just to ride out this cresting wave of existence

knowing that one day the tide will pull back

and so until then just ignoring it all

and instead lying on your back in the grass

trying to see beyond the infinite reaches of the sky?

What’s on your bucket list?

  1. Boy that piece will resonate with most of us I believe. On my bucket list is publishing a book of poems and going to Europe one more time with my husband. Perhaps the biggest item is to move onto ten acres of land where we can get a smaller home, and I can have goats. I love goat cheese and I also like goats. Love and hugs to you my friend. Joni
