How Can I Say This Delicately

Today may be an appropriate time
to explore the thought
just a bit of a thought
to investigate the reason
of what we may be doing
wondering of our being
our forth-come and forth-went
actually the why and why not
of our crawl up from the slime
to this point
in time and space.
The is and the is not of
what we are doing here
and not there.
What orbital mechanics caused this,
this thing
we found ourselves on.
This machine of
heavy wash, soak, rinse and spin.
But at the same time
minding our delicates.
Our precious inner thoughts
and reasoning.
Trying to justify
our pertinent points
and explanations.
Without hurting the feelings
of the gathered groups
of the three or more.
This may be
the appropriate time
to send up this balloon
and see how high it rises.
As we believe in the
Mother of all bombs
and the
Sons of the Al-mighty.

  2. Wow, DSS! Timely, powerful, and profound! Your word-weaving is brilliant! Love so many lines, like this one… “This machine of heavy wash, soak, rinse and spin. But at the same time minding our delicates.” WOW! πŸ™‚

    I think too many people today are doing without thinking. And hearts are left out of the equation completely. 😦

    (((HUGS))) and make it a Happy Whee-kend!!! πŸ™‚
