(Hi....if you've gotten this far, then you are the type of person who should read this.....a person with a humorous outlook on life!!    Have fun, and don't forget to put the lid back down!!)





Moments of contemplation,
are best done sitting down...
I've come upon solutions,
To problems that abound...
While sitting quietly upon my porcelain
throne of white...
My reading room's a personal place of
contemplative delight!


It's stocked with reading material,
Books and 'zines from everywhere...
There's always pen and paper,
You can write while sitting there...
The seat is plush, you sink right in,
and set your spirit free...
Not to mention, it's the place to go,
if you really have to pee!


I've thought up many a story,
I've written many a poem...
Sitting in the reading room,
within my meager home...
I listen to the wind outside, while Nature's
calling me...
The pot connects me back to Earth,
and finally back to Sea...


So, don't just think of your bathroom
as the place you have to go...
It has such grand potential,
It's a space where you can grow...
I hope I've opened up your eyes,
To all the potential it's got...
This wonderful room, a get-a-way,
as perceived in this poem for the pot!!  



Today is a gift....
That is why they call it
    'the Present'!

Sunny is that what is meant by a flowing motion? I really like this it's made me smile. I was going to say it's got your hallmark stamped all over it, but I better not. Oh I do like this, I'll chuckle before I go to sleep.

Hi Marsha...
            Good.....my intent was to focus in on something we all have in common, and can laugh about. I believe the world is in desperate need of laughter!!
   So, if I made you chuckle...I am happy!!
             Thank you, too!!

Wow...should I say that this one really "moved" me or just that it made me a little "flush"....either way just know that it was a fun #1 to read and that makes#2 of yours that I have read today.  Enjoyed my friend.  I am searching for chuckles and you have provided some. Thanks

Hi Mark....
           I am glad that I gave you a few HaHa's, and you had fun with it!!
That's what it was all about, anyway.
          So good to see you!!


Hi AngelEyes....
              I guess now I should tell you that the little guy on the pot is supposed to be Bill Gates!!  Makes him seem more human, doesn't it?   Thank you!!!


Hi Martie....
             Yep, you need all those things in your 'reading room', including some hanging spider plants, (they love steam), and some jade plants. Go ahead....turn it into your ideal get-away place!!  It's the most versatile room in the house!!  
        Thank you for your reply!!

Hi doreen....
            Sorry about the misleading title, but then again.....it could be inter-changeable, as you can do one in the other, and it's really cool to do one in the other in a bubble bath with music, and a glass of wine..........oh, boy........
      I'm glad you stopped in to visit!!!

  Hi Siofra....
               Yep...my favorite pen goes where I go!!  You never know when inspiration will hit you over the head, so I always have a pen and something to write on.
(Toilet paper ain't that great!!)  Ha!! Ha!!

vandana...
         and I'm always impressed by yours!! Poetic feedback is as necessary to all of us, as breathing is to everyone else.
