Spitzer/Coletti/Aphorisms/Humor


(P1) Poetical

How Still We See Thee Lie

In the spirit of the season, I've dubbed this Jim Spitzer painting Bethlehem's Imaginary Harbor. May we all internalize Peace especially at this time of year.

(P2) Philosphical

8 Coletti Aphorisms

1. It is never necessary to understand everything in either life or a poem.

2. Medicine does business poorly, and business does medicine poorly.

3. Seek or ask for answers from yourself, for what we call "god" and the deep-within-me are all but indistinguishable.

4. What other people think about me is none of my business.

5. The time is not always to write or to capture. The time also is to absorb and to be.

6. Profundity is easy. Description is impossible.

7. While there may be such a thing as "unhappiness," there is no such thing as "unjoyfulness," While there is such a thing as "undoing," there is no such thing as "unbeing."

8. Not everything is something.

SIGHTS and SOUNDS of Christmas

How do I know
Christmas is near
Sights and sounds around our house
Make it very clear

Advent paper windows
Get opened every day
Twenty-four to teach patience
And encourage gandkids to pray

They're more excited by
Candy behind the doors they find
Such small pieces widen little eyes
It's a joy of a special kind

When the tree goes up
Home-made decorations are best
Ornaments for the special day
Make up the rest

Candy bulges in the belly puch
Of a Snowman my wife has made
He hangs by grandma's chair
Kids young and old start a parade

Soon the Snowman's belly
Starts to go flat
From a secret stash
He soon again is fat

I hear someone secretly checking
By sound of an occasional clink
For Christmas cookies
In the jar by the kitchen sink
