Serena's Saturday Jam

Wish best wishes from me to you for 2008, let's close our eyes and listen to John Lennon today.

We haven't done poetry lately, so why don't we write haikus today? I think an appropriate theme might be -- the New Year.

Good intentions fall
By the wayside. But some will
Survive the new year.

Night falls, spirits rise.
May this New Year divine the
Tao of things to come.

May this new year bring
happiness and true joy
to all of our friends



Sling said...

Rather than look back
on that which has gone before,
there's always next year.

Charles said...

A coming New Year,
During which reflect this one,
Was it a good one?

Charles said...

Better this New Year,
Than the last that we had.
Better this person.

Snow, Sling, Charles, and /t., you guys have got it going on today. Snow's is sweet, Sling's is philosophical, and Charles's bear wisdom. And /t., kudos to you for sheer creativity!

You guys all rock. You know that, don't you?:)

This is what is meant by Tao, this is what is meant by dharma, this is what is meant by the inner swabhava -- the inner nature. Follow it! Do not make some effort. Really, allow it to be: allow your destiny to be. Do not come in between: allow your destiny to grow. Then a different evolution takes place -- an evolution of consciousness, not of things. So you may not gain a bigger house through acceptance, but you will gain a greater soul. You may not become richer economically, but you will certainly become richer spiritually.

Serena Joy said...

Thank you, Tao, for those wise words on spiritual enrichment. I wish you a happy New Year.

Corn Dog said...

Tao, I think the format is 5-7-5. That is what is meant by Haiku.

Corn Dog said...

Same Old Same Old

The old year is out.
A new year is ushered in.
Ball drops in Times Square.

My New Year's Resolution

My resolution -
off Burl Ives before Christmas.
He's already dead?

Corn Dog said...

Did I win?

Charles said...

This should have read:
Better this New Year,
Than the last one that we had.
Better this person.

Serena Joy said...

Yes, Corn Doggie, you win.:) I think Burl Ives is already dead. Isn't he? If he isn't, though, don't off him. They'll make you wear one of those tacky Wal-Mart shirts and keep an Elvis head in your cell.:-)

G-Man said...

Two Thousend Seven
Was Galen's Best Year Ever..
He met Serena!!!!!!!!

Corn Dog said...

OOOooh, I think there is some violation of human rights if they make me wear a Wal-mart T shirt and keep an Elvis head in my cell. My ex mother-in-law used to call the place Walls Mart.

Burl is dead. Can't kill a dead man. Why won't his song die? "Have a holly jolly Christmas. And in case you didn't hear. Oh by golly have a holly jolly Christmas this year."

Serena Joy said...

Aww, ditto, Galen. Double-aught-seven was a very good year, indeed. Of course, I've always found something mystical about the number "7." Not that I expect '08 to be any less fabulous.:)

I don't know, CD -- I think you CAN kill a dead man. I passed Zombie-Making 101 after all. If we get caught with Burl, though, I'll certainly raise a ruckus if they try to stick us with the shirts and heads.:-)

Hale McKay said...

Tis the time of year
To make up resolutions
So we can break them.

Serena Joy said...

That is always the way of it, Mike. LOL.
