Positivity while decaying daily

unclerave:

Every now and then I like a nice poem.

Originally posted on Perspectives on life, the universe and everything:

death and dust
reality unable to run from
yes, it will come
yes, we will become
sand, dust and on a wet day, clay
but it is not today
sun is shining
at least the weather says so
why worry, and waste
cry and sob in a haste
life has enormous beauty,
love is a duty
if you have time
before it is time
go forth and laugh
scream in joy
plays with nature’s
endless toys
rain drops on your head
what spring has said
in your ear
which made you giggle
wind whispers,
hug trees, kiss bees,
perhaps not too much
as other lips are waiting
and wondering when
the moment will come
not the one which worries
and make you hurry,
the one where they get
some drips,
of your beautiful
bare lips

Jumble Spoiler – 10/22/14

Visual Description:  When being down to earth ain’t a good thing.

KEBAL  =  BLEAK,  SUDEO  =  DOUSE,  BUDOLE  =  DOUBLE,  FATEXI  =  FIXATE   —   Giving us:  EADEDLFT

Clue/Question:  After losing the hot air balloon race, the team was – – -

Answer:  DEFLATED

(Very nice!  We have a new clue word in “fixate”.  And, it looks like all of the jumbles are new.  Fine job with the answer letter layout.  And, a top notch cartoon. Some day I’d like to go up in a hot air balloon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/22/14

Not all readers are leaders, but all leaders are readers.”   —   Harry S. Truman

(Give ‘Em Hell, Harry!  This is our first Harry Truman quote since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  I’d like to think it’s a truism.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/18/14

Visual Description:  Pre-air sickness.

ATULF  =  FAULT,  TINNH  =  NINTH,  GITHEW  =  WEIGHT,  MDAISY  =  DISMAY   —   Giving us:  FLTNNWEGIY

Clue/Question:  When the plane hit turbulence, everything – – -

Answer:  WENT FLYING

(Pretty good.  No new clue words, but all the jumbles seem new.  Great job with the answer letter layout.  And, a great cartoon.  Drinks and laptops flying.  Overhead compartments popping open.  And, folks losing it!  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/18/14

I think the greatest taboos in America are faith and failure.”   —   Michael Malone

(Our first Michael Malone quote.  I get the failure, but I disagree with the faith part.  Unless he wrote this quote about 40 years ago.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 10/21/14

Visual Description:  Shrew, pushing her luck.

SIMUN  =  MINUS,  CITHH  =  HITCH,  LUTFIE  =  FUTILE,  HERDIN  =  HINDER   —   Giving us:  MINHTFTEIDE

Clue/Question:  He needed to look for the missing watch, but he couldn’t – – -

Answer:  FIND THE TIME

(Very nice.  Kind of an old joke though.  No new clue words, but all the jumbles appear to be new.  No, Wimpy!  That wasn’t Flutie.  It was “futile”.  The answer letter layout was actually very good.  If you were slow to pick up on the gag the answer letter layout might have held you back some.  Nice cartoon.  Which reminds me . . . I have to cut the grass . . . and leaves.  And, trim some bushes, before the weather really turns.  Be well and do good, friends.  I’ll try to post the missing spoilers in the next few days.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/21/14

A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they’re not so good, and sympathize with your problems when they’re not so bad.”   —   Arnold H. Glasgow
