A happy man poem -- micro flash writing.

[click on picture for larger viewing size]

A poem might never be written
That tells of this man's dresser top
Unless he would write it himself 

Proud is a word he doesn't use
But the man I have on my mind
Likes his dresser so very well

A changing moving stage for him
Pleasant scene when he awakens
It puts him in a pleasant mood

A mood that lasts him for the day
Even come a terrible row
He will smile when he sees his toys

By now you may have guessed
This happy man is me

I like the framed comic strip! Snoopy is a favourite of mine.

I have my children's first stuffed animals in my room - the ones treasured until about 12 or 13... they are well loved and frayed. Brings joy to my heart. My youngest still clings to his...

we must find happiness where we can ... and you know, these personal shrines/altars are good things ... for the young at heart, forever young, and of course, to inspire when things just seem too hard for it all ... what a fascinating collection ... it makes me smile .... and well, aren't you just sweet for sharing this with us? LOL ... may your treasures always bring you pleasure and smiles :D

Boys and their toys; those earliest elements of our education stick with us for many years don't they? This post of yours reminded me of the film "Citizen Kane" where after Kane's death reporters wonder about his last word "Rosebud" thinking she is his lover but only the audience knows it is his toboggan when he was child.

It is a grand pastime to fill up quality time with the grandies! A taste of those good times of innocence, Dr Jim!

Oh the trinkets that bring a smile when awakening are precious gold to the spirit.

So, so cute. I love adults who still love their toys. I buy ponies, dolls, and Barbies for myself all the time. :)

I just love that Mario and Snoopy are facing each other. And I'm pretty sure the red teddy is ready to rub Mario's head for luck. My dresser is also my bedside table--my bed is really high, so that my hip and I don't have to do too many acrobatics when I get up. I always keep something that makes me smile on the side that faces my bed. Right now, I have a really fat pencil, the head of Darth Vader, Rocket Raccoon (holding a machine gun and a chainsaw larger than himself *rocket likes to overcompensate*), and a few other things that keep the grins coming. Toys are good for the soul. :-)
