Sunday Scribblings " I Carry"


Compartmentalized

I carry laughter in my invisible back pocket

Beside silliness, and some humorous antics

I carry wisdom perched on a shelf in my soul

Beside sorrow, courage, and experience

I carry love in my big old heart, squished beside

Memories, joy, and compassion,

I carry guilt, abuse, anger, and illness

Layered in pound after pound upon my body

I carry hope and faith together, snuggled in my soul

With creativity, generosity, and Gratitude

In my conscious mind I carry dreams

Floating with reverence, visions of peace

Celebration and success!


I also carry the memories of my favorite "Carry On" movies of the seventies. To this day I still enjoy a really good English made comedy!
