Funny Kind Of Heaven

Giulietta Masina in Fellini's La Strada

Giulietta Masina in Fellini’s La Strada

You know,

when I look at you

I laugh

Not because you’re a fool

Although you can be foolish.

Not because you’re a clown You juggle just fine.

Not because you tell good jokes

Sometimes you get lucky.

Not because you’re silly

There’s a bit of a child in you.

Not because you can’t match socks

(I’ll let that one slide).

It’s because I love

The hell out of you!

Funny kind of heaven

We’ve got going on between us.

  8. Love the clown line. There needs to be more poetry like this out there!

    I agree. You have the way of putting mundane things into orbit. That talent says a great deal about your personality. I hope you are publishing and if not I wish I knew the people to come and sweep you into fame.

    Beautiful Elan – bloody beautiful!


  11. Wow…your poems are well written and universal. I am not much of a poetry fan, and yet I couldn’t stop reading your poems. Can’t wait to read more


  12. This is another great poem!


  13. I like it. And what is the secret to matching socks anyway? They’re all the same socks and they still don’t match.

    This is lovely. The photo drew me in but the poem made me stay. There is a touch of (my hero) Laurie Anderson about this one. x ❤

  25. I love the rhythm here, long-short lines, I’m thinking jazz rhythms. Any doubt as to what is being expressed? Not to my eyes (ears).

    I didn’t know my socks didn’t match until I read this and looked at my feet.


  26. Marsha says:

    How true. I smile at even a note from ones I love for some of those very reasons. 🙂


  27. HI Elan So good. Thank you for liking my poem “Object!” Peace and Best wishes. The Foureyed Poet.


  28. Good one! Find it relatable!

    Beautiful words, and great image from a beautiful movie you’ve reminded me I need to re-watch!

    Loved “Funny Kind of Heaven.” Thanks for liking my Beta Reader post.


    • Elan Mudrow says:

      Thanks. Beta readers and/or workshops have their place. Don’t depend on them too much. It’s easy for a writer to fall into the trap of wanting to write “like” a professional, as they see this is a way to publication. I think it’s more important to work on your own voice and find a way through it. Good luck!
