SOMEONE LEFT THE CAKE IN THE RAIN

IMG_0558Someone must have pushed the replay button on the remote because we are getting the same scenario as yesterday.  Yes, it is snowing again.  I don’t know why but Richard Harris and strains of McArthur’s Park is playing in my head.

MacArthur’s Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain

I don’t think that I can take it
‘Cause it took so long to bake it
And I’ll never have that recipe again, oh noooooo

IMG_0559I feel like that cake melting in the rain. Little inconsequential things are like torches  under my skin.  My icing is melting.  I have to breathe to cool the flames.  They are spluttering in the wind and rain.  Ahhh!  They are out and I am saved.  I have found the recipe.   Wonder Woman faces another day.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

  1. Isn’t it strange how some songs ed up stuck in our heads. I usually find myself humming church hymns I grew up with!

  2. I LOVE that song. Some people say the words come from a drug-induced delusion, but I prefer to think of it as poetry. It typifies the feeling one gets when everything is going wrong.

  3. Huh! I’ve never heard of that song. But I enjoyed your post, and I’m glad that Superwoman has made it through another day. 🙂 Very enjoyable. Thank you.
