Her Royal Kindness Surviving The Imperial Fuss Over Another Special Ordinary Day





Her Royal Kindness Surviving The Imperial Fuss Over Another Ordinary Day



This drawing is taking forever. When I say "forever" I mean more than a day and lately, a day means two, three or four days or even a week, until I am fed up with it. So I am going to cut corners, literally. I am just going to use the left upper corner.

 



Your royal kindness,
When civilization ends,
I will still be your friend.
When I wake up,
you are in my remembrances.
When I close my eyes,
you are on my list to give thanks.
In my dreams, I am rowing a giant oak leaf 
towards an isolated island to save 
and protect you
from crazy, slobbering, stalking dogs.
I wake up
and it is not what I have dreamt.
It is you who keep me safe from 
crazy, slobbering, stalking dogs,
You send a hummingbird 
to pluck me from drowning.
In my old age I will continue to fuss
in my heart to celebrate your special day
while I play and pretend that 
it is just another ordinary day.
I wanted a lot of fanfare and macarons
but I just have this unfinished drawing
and a poem that does not even rhyme.
Thank God it is not the end of civilization,
and there are real poets.
Today is Sisterfriend Day
and No Housekeeping Day.
Tsup!

WHY
do I
smile lots
while reading
your bon mots

...and truly, EVERY day
is just another special
ordinary day.
Another day to unfinish
something. To diminish
my self-imposed importance!

Happy Birthday to Viking?
