In With The New

I’ve had enough of you
In with the new

I liked the dark and cold
But now it’s stale and old

Your cynicism charmed
For moments there disarmed

But it’s dull to my view
I’m calling in the new

I want orange, red, not blue
In with the new

Your palate was restrained
Like darker crystal stained

I loved that for a time
I thought it quite sublime

But now those tones eschew
I’ve had enough of you
In with the new

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

    [ Smiles ] Oh, this was rather enjoyable.

    Nicely done, Helen!

  2. Hmm Helen we do grow and change don’t we. I had this sense of the love we have some people does begin to wane and we want something new, then again it could be the natural progression of time where we stop doing the same old and look for the new. Thought provoking as always.

    • Thanks so much – it was just inspired by seeing an article in a magazine titled ‘In With The New’, so it’s beginnings weren’t profound, but it’s fun to make something with meaning out of the essentially random sometimes… 🙂

  3. Out, damned spot! 🙂 I like this HV.

  4. Wow. So this is how the magazine trick turns out….brilliant!!! 🙂 xxxx

  5. how pleasing it is to eventually get rid of the grub and grime, though at first alluring with an ‘edge’ how we grow weary of it. Liked a lot Helen. 🙂
