SHABBY UNCHIC

Hands of Homeless Man with Change in Cup

SHABBY UNCHIC

Our lives are
So precious
We take what we have here
For granted
Most of the time
 
We could be living
In a war zone
Not a condo
We might be starving
For food, not entertainment
 
Imagine not having books
Television, movies, or iphones
Picture yourself unwashed
Wearing shabby clothes
With flies for companions
 
Consider that
You might not
Survive another day
Due to war, famine
Or disease
 
The lives we are living
Have been charmed
Up to this point
We have been blessed
And most of us are oblivious
 
These images
Seem far too foreign
Or unreal to us, now
We don’t subscribe to
The real world, we’re too busy texting

BRILLIANCE UNDER PRESSURE

Diamond Joan Blue Flare

AND WE ALL SHINE ON*

People are like diamonds

We are formed under pressure,

As they are; and sometimes

With extreme conditions, also

Like diamonds, our brilliance

Is hidden under our outer layers

Which may be buried deeply,

So deeply

As humans, we need to cherish

And trust our inner spirits

To break through the hard

Exterior wall and expose

The true gem beneath

To do as Pink Floyd put it:

“Shine on you crazy diamond!”

*With Thanks to John Lennon for writing these words.

WILLOW YOU? A REDHEAD BLOGS AT 60!

INTRODUCTION:

First of all, I want to welcome you to my blog.  The purpose of joanszone is to share poetry, humor, photography, and whatever comes to my mind.  These will be my  creations, but will not limited to my own work.

I am a redhead, although I admit to having a wonderful color expert to achieve this effect. The hair coloring is now pretty much white and gray.   I just really think I’m a redhead inside– it suits my personality.

Here is a poem from my second book, Embracing Your Inner Cheerleader.  See if you can relate to this!

Peace out!

Joan

Be The Tree Best2 flare copy

WILLOW YOU?

I began my life passively
Or, so I thought
Not that one could discount
The hard-headed stubbornness
That runs like a deep vein of gold
In the granite rock of the genetic
Makeup of my family tree
But, as the years have rolled by
It has become apparent that
Control issues are key in relationships
As they have been in mine

Many of us are stronger willed
And try to impose this on others
These are the righteous ones
Trying to bend the weaker to them
Like a young flexible sapling

Some will snap like twigs and are finished
Others bounce back unbent
Defiant in the face of such control
Resilience bouncing the back upright
Not giving in, not giving up, no, never!

Be true, be the tree
That will not bend
To you and me
