Pickles and Peace on the Side


 "Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed.  Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude."
  ~Denis Waitley

I am life partake of me
I am at your service
I am your maitre-de
I am the menu
within your hands
the choice is yours
what will you have?
Today's special is
happiness on rye
with pickles and peace
on the side
or would you rather
have discontent
with a cup of soup?
It's time to order
it's up to you?


  1. life at our service...ha...i like that...but then again it comes down to our choices now doesnt it? i want some of that special...smiles.

  2. I like the many ways that one can interpret this picture...you done a fabulous job with the prompt :)

  3. OH MY .... another HUGE sigh .......................

  4. May I have a double order of the special, please?

  5. this poem is wonderful- truth in simplicity- we can smile or frown- it's really up to us. I'll take the sunny day special please. Have a lovely day Carrie.

  6. We do get--no, have--to choose our feelings. Well done!

    By the way, I saw a poem elsewhere that reminded me of your blog. Maybe you'll like it:

  9. Give me the special in abundant quantities... I really enjoyed this Carrie!

  10. I read this poem three times and loved it and every time i re-read it there is a new and beautiful meaning to it.
