if it could speak….would not
propose that it is
half full or half empty.
Said glass — being transparent —
would tell it like it is:
half full AND  half empty.
Said glass — having no need to spin —
would raise itself to yang and yin.
To life and death.
Win some, lose some.
He said, she said.
Even this poem may be dualistic:
what it says, and
what you think it says.

    Looks like I’ll be the first to drink to that.

    I second the motion.

    Damn Cahill beat me to the punch or the drink. But it’s an old expression in my neighborhood with a story behind it. “I’ll drink to that.”

    Is the glass half empty or half full doesn’t matter if it’s Johnny Walker Blue.

    I’ll take your word for it, Don (since I drink nothing stronger than beer), but across the river in the Bluegrass State, I suspect Jim Beam would kick Johnnie Walker’s butt black and blue.


  5. “Drink to my with only thine eyes…” and I will drink a mug of beer and be satisfied.

    Great poem, mistermuse, and it resonates with positive energy. I wish I could write half as well.
