Flip Side



on the flip side
it could always be worse
so I flip
and I flop
as a fish out of water
contented in knowing
it could always
be worse

  1. I live with the same attitude "could be worse"

  2. it could always be better...

    Learning to swim in tears or
    learning of breathing without water,

    the art of survival is an art of transformation.


    Kay,
    acquirer stock,
    sometimes I fall asleep in such a manner with similar feelings

    warm hugs and the power of faith in the New Year

  10. I never saw how knowing it could be worse, or someone else is worse off, was supposed to be comforting. Nonetheless, I am LOVING that mermaid picture!

    Happy new year!

  11. another nice poem you've written Kay, about how life gets. If one could just get that woman out of that restrictive fin-skirt I am sure the two of them (together) could find a way to apply equal and opposite forces against each other until each of them came to their senses, three or four times

  12. A great way to start a new year... just the right attitude. We do always need to be reminded that things... even the darkest of things... are lighter on the flip side.

  14. Oh, Kay, I love this flip flop. However I hope one day the mermaid will flip flop in joy and contentment.

    Wishing you a wunderbar 2011. Its unusual to know that you are just around the corner! Just down the road! Hugs, Paula xxx

  15. There is truth in that...of course. But somehow, at present, it is no comfort. I want to say...life is great! I need the respite of that, just for awhile.

    ((Hugs))

  17. Flip-flop, flip-flop....i do it most of the time!
    Everything has a funny side to its tragedy.
    we see that as we have moved ahead!
    So lets shake the prunes off!
    So lets buckle our seats ....and,there we go into 2011!

  18. But the fish, they wish
    To flop right back
    To meet that warm, safe water
    So they flip, and they flop
    And they twist and turn
    Hoping, it would be better...
