Cantankerous Crazies

FOWC with Fandango — Cantankerous

This post is somewhat tongue-in-cheek…NO disrespect is meant to people with mental illness.  Since I’m a “crazy”, I write of times when my mood/thought disorder is disabling, and days when I have to laugh about it.  My long-time neighbor once said, “but you have a good heart”…I’m grateful he could speak gracious truth 🙂

Countless consider me

Cantankerous

There’s another side…but

Beware

Best to allow wide berth…

Crazy people are unpredictable, yes…we’re often good-hearted, too 🙂

Farewell

https://ragtagcommunity.wordpress.com/2019/04/06/rdp-saturday-coast/

FOWC with Fandango — Tenuous

FOWC with Fandango — Natural

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #42: farewell

Along island’s natural coast, you bade

Farewells…though you were already gone

At rest, free, unfettered…leaving memories

For handful of intimates to hold, keepsakes…

The crowd of admirers, as always, shut out

From your life and death, ever restricted.

How tenuous this life, the frail egos of men

Most of whom grasp and cling, strive for

One more day, hour of reputation, legacy…

True, some beg for, seek early release, but

You were big name, penned in bold strokes

And you shamed critics, left wealth to charity.

I was nothing, no one…but I loved, will

Always love you fiercely.

Envy Not (NaPoWriMo)

FOWC with Fandango — Envy

http://www.napowrimo.net/day-eight-6/

The optional prompt features and is inspired by Maggie Smith’s poem, “Good Bones”… a phrase used by real estate agents, regarding the unseen potential in houses lacking appeal.  Click the NaPoWriMo link for more information.  I was pleasantly surprised, once again, that the poem I’d already written wasn’t miles off the mark 😉

I never envied

People their wealth, possessions

Bright shiny baubles…

Allure, was families’ close net

Secure laughter, affection…

In time I realized

No one has fairytale life

Skeletons grin wide

Idiosyncrasy of Love

FOWC with Fandango — Idiosyncrasy

Funny thing about

LOVE

It embraces idiosyncrasies, calls

‘Endearing’

What otherwise makes us crazy…

If I love you, I’m suddenly blind with grace.

Prescient Messenger

FOWC with Fandango — Prescient

Prescient Spirit beckons

Ear

Message of good hope

Assuaging

Anxiety that well-being may deliquesce

As ageing precedes death… Deny Liar who’d steal vitality.

Contacts

FOWC with Fandango — Contacts

Used to wear

Contacts

They made me look

Beautiful

Used to have more contacts

As in people…I discovered less is really more.
