THE VIBE
There is in reflection, sweet solace
Keyboard tapping days past, to legacy

Words trace a hisory of rthymn spent
Costumed in street-parade's thematic scheme

Each pause thinking deeper going further
Way back to Blue Devil Jab Jab Mondays

And clouds smudged in rainbow Tuesdays
Ah but now, that Carnival vibe is over.

  1. May Carnival (days) never die.

    "Way back to Blue Devil Jab Jab Mondays" ... If we could all label our Mondays as such, I think we would all do a lot more smiling. :)

    I love the instant pictures (of your world) you give me when I read your poems. They make me want to come visit.

  2. Gillena, I dare to say your carnival vibe is absolutely NOT over. You are born into it. You are one with it. The rhythm that is you will never die. I will tap, tap, tap along with you and join you in your rainbow jab dab song. Thanks for including the picture of yourself in your element, doing what you love to do. Put some feathers in your hair, and make your own parade.

  3. How we wish we could get in a time machine and return to our happiest days but sadly it is one time round then leave the experiences to children and grandchildren. I hope they have as much fun and laughter as I had in mine.

  4. I love those carnival photos, Gillena, and the words that 'Words trace a history of rhythm' - 'Blue Devil Jab Jab Mondays' and 'clouds smudged in rainbow Tuesdays' sound wonderful!
