Looking out through my window, just finished listening to the news, my mind roams not over fresh pastures but over and over the old. I just kept thinking, where to now? Where to now?

My Red and Blue Umbrella

The surrounding ground,

reads business and trading worries abound.

Stop selling your possessions,

to those of bigger stature and impressions.

Your partners in action,

are you letting down with distractions.

Speeches and negotiations,

make cloudy misunderstandings within the foundations.


He needs to take the initiative.

The potential, is green primitive.

Lead with strides,

of glee and flexibility vibes.

Friends across the shores,

believe, in your clarity squares.

Know how spontaneity,

can create glory quantity.


Material difficulties are deep,

More outgoings, than are wept.

Out in the world, shivering.

Invest in you, glimmering.

Move forward with sensitivity.

Improve your understanding, nothing gimmicky.

If need be, seek,

words of one whom delights dynamique.


Heed the demands of a hero.

Plan and seek one’s tomorrow.

Self-doubt rides alongside,

but keep Will supplied.

Is change

See results

      Glad you enjoyed this poem. I read billybuc's recent mailbag. I think sharing some of your private thoughts as you struggle and toggle with personal dealings, could be very inspiring to others, eric. But you can only know what the ok boundary to pass or not pass for you. You come across as a person who has experienced much and maybe not what the typical person may encounter. See....
