the new world

the new world
waits, like a penny
to pick up

toss
into air
and guess
which face lands up

a game
where rules
change
on a dime

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    I fine these times to be very trying, I can relate well to this wonderful piece of writing.

  2. …the new world
    is every day and
    which side of the bed….
    …who says we have to
    flip…though…I often
    flip out…

    “the new world waits like a coin to pick up” YAY! I love this line. It’s true.

  4. I like this poem a lot. It says it all.

    pretty much a balance of heads or tails, no matter which said the coin drops, it always seems unfair for this world to guess the horrible things that might occur.

    Excellent!

    I’d like to know what lies behind this poem. Rules changing on a dime.

    Clever and cute.

    At the same time it makes me think of those intentions experiments.
