    A GOOD DAY AFTERALL

    I woke up in a fog
    with nothing to say;
    had my coffee and shower,
    dressed and was on my way.

    I was in a bad mood
    expecting a bad day
    when I looked up and realized
    the sky is gay!

    Default out of the blue?

    I hope its ok to post an image here to prompt possible poems...
    (Apologies to Jean and Odetta if Ive erred!)
    This one was in Huffpost recently and it touched something in me, and Im dying to read others' poetic perspetive on it.....






    what grace of innocence
    unites the young
    in Joy
    such a simple magic
    is Love





    Other perspectives on the image?

    I asked my daughter the other day
    "Honey, do you know about Hiroshima?
    About Nagasaki, Bikini Atoll, or
    the Manhattan Project?

    Ever hear of Enola Gay?
    Does the name Oppenheimer ring a bell?
    Do you know when they split the atom
    It was unleashing the hounds of hell?

    Honey, do you have any idea
    What a nuclear bomb does?"

    She looked up at me
    Eyes shining

    And she said,
    "It goes boom, Daddy."

    "I am a leaf on the wind. Watch how I soar."

    Cool post!
    I especially like:
    "Do you know when they split the atom
    It was unleashing the hounds of hell?"

    Have any thoughts on this image?


    I am pondering a response to your image, Steve....

    We wore crooked smiles and belled-out jeans
    and pushed a shopping cart down the street.
    Hand in hand in hand in hand,
    black on white on white on black.
    Sometimes we got looks, we never got words
    except when this old man stopped us
    and said, "You give this old heart hope
    for the future of man."
    It didn't occur to me then, but now I realize
    That old guy was blind.

    I'm sorry to bring the glass half empty, but it would kill me to find out this picture was "put together" and these kids don't even know each other"
    I'm sorry, this world has made me a part time skeptic. so the other part will hope that it is a random shot, and that all the media, interracial, intersexual, "we are all friends" , tv shows, presidency's,ect..is a real try, and not another magic trick.

    Just sayin

    well, since we are not in a discussion thread here, we'll assume, for this thread purposes, that it is a genuine random snapshot

    on the other hand, one can as well assume that it is staged for propaganda, and write a satirical poem about that

    or about something completely different, provided the photo serves the source of inspiration

    anything, in short, except a political/social discussion here (we have Starkblast for these)

    I agree with Jean, and would like to add that I would actually love to see a poem based on the concept that it is a staged picture!
