Looking Straight Down The Gun Barrel


It's Not Where I Want To Be

I don't think anyone wants to be there ever

When things go terribly wrong

A broken water sprinkler

As if that is not bad enough

Trouble with the dishwasher too

What's next the oven

Don't go there

When it rains it pours

The more I think

The more things go wrong

Now let's back up a step

All these things could be one big coincidence

What are the chances?

I know they seem unlikely

Here is proof they really do happen

I couldn't make this stuff up

Look on the bright side

You are the luckiest person I know

So use it to your advantage

Go play the lottery

Which one

Anyone you feel will bring you the most luck

Go with your gut

Now back to all the problems at hand

They will need some fixing

But think at all the times they worked just fine

How old is each one?

If you break it down

It is only pennies a day

For all that joy

Now we might have to tap into the rainy day fund

Oops It is empty

I think we tapped into it before

I also think at that time we called it the Fun Money Fund

Well, we have to think of a different plan

I know we can think of something

We always do

Remember two minds are better than one

Three minds are brilliant

Four or more minds

We are out of our mind

Take it one day at a time

One day we will look back at this time and laugh

O.k. it might not be later today or tomorrow

Not even next week

When that day comes

I am going to remind you

I will have to keep my distance

Just in case you are not over it yet

I will give you a big hug

No mask needed

Wouldn't that be great


DREAM ON (author) on July 07, 2021:

John Hansen I was heading into work and the sky opened up. It was kind of fun running in the rain. I didn't care that I got all wet. I thought back to when I was a kid and I loved playing in the rain. I try to focus on all the good experiences we have and the not-so-good ones will pass. Sometimes they need a little help. Are you busy? Two weeks ago you left one of your lovely comments. I read it every night. Too quickly I feel we forget the people who help us in our life. So I postpone my comment for a time to see if the words speak to me. Letting them resonate deeper in meaning and thought. Sometimes it works other times it doesn't. I have heard deaths happen in threes too. Believe it or not, It works out that way. At least for me. So much can happen in any one day. Compound that with seven days a week and fifty-two weeks a year. We can have either a great time or one constant headache that won't go away. (lol) Thank God for my wife who keeps me balanced. I write in different patterns or cycles. I am not sure why? I guess I have to factor in a lot of things. I like to think that all I have to do is close my eyes and step into the creative zone. Sometimes all I want to do is write. Other times I just want to read everything I can get my hands on. Like books will never be printed ever again. Then sure enough there are many more books than we could have never dreamt of. It's all in my mind. Over the years i never had to deal with the difficulty other people have had. Hopefully, it will stay that way. I feel guilty. Why does life work that way?I don't think we will ever know the answer. We just celebrated Independence Day which is the 4th of July. I had to work and so it was more like any other day. At my work, all we get is Thanksgiving and Christmas as paid holidays, and get to enjoy both with time off. So many other companies get so much more. In my next life, I will work for them. I hope all is well with you and your family. Things are looking up here. Thank you for your comments. Two weeks later I am here. Have a splendid day.

Dream On, “it never rains but it pours.” When things go wrong for me, I know it is cliched, but it usually happens in threes. The car breaks down, usually when have just saved enough for something else we want. Then could be the TV needs replacing, or the washing machine needs repairs.

Somehow, we always seem to find thee money or solution. Yes, two minds are better than one to sort out these problems. Thanks for sharing.
