Playful Possibilities

Playful Possibilities


play, poetry, silly rhyme

playing I am free

full of joy in being me

Gypsy Brad is my name

play is our best game


once upon a silly hat

we had a very nice chat

bouncing up and down

like a cheerful clown


should you feel a frown

we can turn you upside down

or maybe that’s right side up

where joy bubbles like a pup


the true nature of life

need not be one of strife

this is the end of my poem

now it’s time to show them



Seeing this photo of me playing with my nephew a few years ago reminds me that I don’t have to take everything so seriously. This weekend IΒ attended service at our local Center for Spiritual Living teaching center and enjoyed a delightfully silly (and insightful) talk on bringing the energy of play into our daily lives. If we are striving and efforting too much in our lives, it’s often a sign of being off track. Play can be a great way to relax back into the flow of life. Thank youΒ to Bonnie, Willie, and Dr. Seuss for the reminders to play. Yippee! Β XD

  1. Things are so crazy and so vicious right now in this country we most DEFINITELY need to reinvent play back into our lives. So few people smile and laugh anymore yet we do not even notice. Like the frog in a pot of boiling water. Time to revisit childhood again and free ourselves. Great pic Brad! Keep that smile on your face….VK πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  2. Awesome poem and fun picture. That reminds me of the saying, “don’t take life so seriously…nobody gets out alive, anyways.”
    Alas, I admit I take it too seriously sometimes – I love life, I love living it and I take it “seriously” that I’ve just got one and I don’t have that long. So…I’m always trying to figure out what’s next…and sometimes what’s next is just…playing. πŸ™‚
