Funny Kind Of Heaven

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.

  1. Love this. It reminds me of how I feel about my husband.


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


  3. 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.


  4. 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 ❤


  5. It’s all about putting socks in pairs inside a drawer after they have been dried. If you understand what I’m getting at.


  6. 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.

  7. The line not because you’re a clown, you juggle just fine is brilliant.
