Found a red ribbon today
While sweeping under the rug
Because my vacuum is in the shop
Due to too many dry pine needles
Because we only had fifteen minutes
To pick out a Christmas Tree
Before Home Depot closed
And we managed to get a very dry old tree.
The red ribbon reminds me
Of my search for the Path
That brings meaning into my life
And I for one can’t live without it
Because without meaning I have no hope
And I am not giving that up for sure.
As I write this
I am recovering from a bonk on the head
That I am calling
“My ski accident”
Even though I was only in my skis for less than 30 seconds
Before the playing pup buckled me on the back of my knees
And down I went hard.
I am wondering if anyone can relate
To any of this
Or am I as loony as feel?
