May I Wonder Aloud

Like the song, I ask where all the flowers have gone.
Where are the people that were part of my life growing
up as a babe and young boy?
I know the answer; they have slipped away into a memory
I have the memories, deep memories, I should be happy.

Next the teenage years and a lot of the same people are
there; but there’s new ones too. They were priming me
for the new adult life and the first loves of a teen. It was
happy anxiety. Those people and the girls have all slipped
away into memories. I have the memories, deep memories,
I should be happy.

As a young man the 7 seas were going to be my home
and I married a young lady to keep my house. We had one
child and finally four growing up and out of the home.
They all have a mate of their own. Those children raised
me! The wife and I drew apart and the family all slipped
away into memories. I have the memories, deep memories,
I should be happy.

Aging as people do, I found a few friends; the kids were
all far away and I turned to writing as an outlet. Nothing
was ever published, but that didn’t matter; the writing
was for my benefit, no one else’s. One day the Doctor
told me I would soon lose my memories and after a
while I would finally die. So now I write even more of my
memories, so I can remember them; so I should be happy.

Magic Carrot Died @ Five

Only I could think that it would come true.

That Eddie Flumdum one day would rule

The Bohemian Rhapsody would B.O.H.I.C.A.

Don’t eat that carrot who knew where it’s been

I may have stumbled on my magic carrot

When I was 4 or 5 yo My Mom had a magic carrot we would rub when we needed something. Never asking the impossible wishes or too much.. because that would be taking the away from the other carrot users. Sometimes we can feel we don’t deserve anything from anyone and then I remembered the magic carrot… I’ll be busy for the next couple of weeks I’ll be working and if goes well…the wishing well that is and I’ll share what my carrot came up with.
