Boomerangs Of Life
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

A smile is like a boomerang.
It leaves your lips
when it's tossed to another's face.
Then, here it comes right back
to find it's starting place.

A hug resembles a boomerang.
Arms opened,
then tightly closing around another.
Suddenly, there it is.
It came right back to you.

Love on a boomerangs toss
returns in great measure.
Never lost when it finds
the hand and the heart of the giver.

A lie is like a boomerang ...
eventually it turns
and beheads the one who tossed it.
Unfortunately it reeks havoc with others
before it returns to its original place.

I've flung boomerangs of a smile.
Boomerangs of a hug.
Boomerangs of love.
They all returned to me.
While I've been struck
by the boomerang of a lie,
I've never had to catch it,
for it never left my lips.

A good philosophy, well defined. Like this

I look forward to tomorrow, while looking back on the past. But today is the day I am living. And I expect it to be a great day!

Nice way of thinking, let us all throw a few boomerangs of our own today

Pepper and Denise ... thanks. I was just sitting here reflecting on what boomerangs I'd get to catch today ! All of you here are a boomerang unto yourselves for making someone feel so welcomed.

I was never very good at math,
but I know this much is true,
the more you give in this short life
the more you get, it's true.
