Well it’s certainly not before time that I am posting another poem. The last month has been full of frustrations, and even today, there have been “blocks” that have restricted my selection of poem to one that I probably wouldn’t have selected.
However, as we know everything happens at just the right time and place, always.
The events of this poem are apparently real as they happened to a woman who related them to me on the one occasion I attended a formal Creative Writing group. Even if they are not quite true, they make, I hope, an amusing, and insightful anecdote. This poem was written in 2009. I hope you enjoy it.
Stepping Out at the Ball
It was the evening of the dance.
I was in control… I had it all,
for I was looking glamourous, and so mature.
I was… The Belle of this Ball.
But suddenly the button on my undies broke,
and I could feel inside,
beneath my dress, my knickers move,
and start a terrifying slide.
They hit the floor!.. I looked for the door…
My mind raced with fear and dismay,
till my inner voice said “Stay calm, dear”.
I stepped out… and danced away.
So I escaped from embarrassment,
because I had not forgot,
to keep my cool. I guess you could say,
I didn’t… get my knickers in a knot.
Some spiritual reflections:
- Pride comes before a fall.
- Don’t panic… things aren’t as bad as they seem.
- There is a solution to every crisis.
- Slow down your mind. When it races it can spin out of control.
- Listen to your inner voice.
- Be brave.
- Don’t care what others think about you.
Well I hope you liked this change of pace. Sometimes a point can be made best through humour, and life is too important to be lived “Seriously”.
Lighten up and enjoy each minute of every day.
Hopefully after this lull, I am back to regular, frequent postings. In the meantime, take care of yourself, and live whole-ly and holily and happily.
In love and light,
