will work for tunes

crumble me
cookie-like
into the shape
of a heart made
merry by mar
-velous sugar
stung songs.

chop me
into sticks and
stones, quiet
thrones for monkey
kings and dragons.

hold the
pre
-scription of your smile
to my skin, and remind
me today’s a whole
new place
to be
-gin.

 

..
Still getting inspired by fortunes over at dVerse with Toni. Love this one: 

A merry heart does good like a medicine.

It’s actually a quote from Proverbs 15:15. I love how The Message version translates it:
For the happy heart, life is a continual feast.
(This makes it appropriate for a Fat Tuesday as well, then.)  😉

It’s not been a merry heart kind of day, really. But mercies are new every morning…

  2. So cool that a fortune cookie would contain that verse from Proverbs. I love the freedom you show in word-play.

    You would never know by your writing that you weren’t having a merry heart kind of day, De. I like your positive and playful nature. :~)

    Find the middle verse intriguing… !!

  6. Mary says:

    Enjoyed the optimism in this! I get the message that each day is a new beginning. I think we have to keep realizing that each morning of our life!

    Smiling I am………fortune done so well…and reference to the new year and new beginnings and yes, I’ll tip a sip of gin to you there! 🙂

  8. A sting in the words I thought. A merry heart bleeding one drop.

  9. Love the thought of that prescription smile… wonderful really… I think I will try to smile a little more.

    Best title ever. If only. Actually, I wish my boss were Tunes, as an entity. Or better yet, Toons.

    I love the way you snuck those Sugar Veelas in there (from Harry Potter).

    That line break after “remind” is great too, changing the meaning to “re-mind” me … mind me again.

    Ha ha. You just made this kinky: “new place” … If you make the “p” do a 180-degree turn, this says “new d lace,” which puts you in some sexy lingerie telling someone to mind you. 🙂 … Which you can totally get away with because you can blame it on the gin!
