December 21st will soon be here
Some folk are happy, yet others live in fear
Some are preparing for the end of the world
Patiently waiting to see just what will unfurl
December 21st is when the sun ‘stands still’
The solstice, well one of them, if you will!
The day of the year that’s shorter than the rest
And the day that a prophecy is put to the test
December 21st is a day like any other
Still with things waiting for us to discover
Things such as calmness, happiness and hope
Will always be here, helping us to cope
December 21st will be the day that it is
No need to stress, or get into a tizz,
Have fun on the day, start something new
Carry it forward onto day twenty two!
2012. Doom and gloom. Prophecies. Fear, foreboding and darkness.
Doesn’t sound very good, when everything points to the negative. Which is precisely the whole point of negativity, really. You can’t feel good and be negative.
You can, however, look at things in a positive light. Now that makes you feel good!
The world will not end on December 21st 2012. Although I can’t be certain of that, I’m prepared to run with that theory. There have been many times in the past when the world was expected to come to a shattering conclusion, and yet here we are, still talking about them. Keep on keeping on.
The world will end on December 21st. Although I can’t be certain of that, lots of people, books, prophecies, movies, and other sources are telling me this is fact. It must be true… so many different sources can’t be wrong. Can they?
But wait. It can’t do both. End and not end.
Even that last sentence ends in ‘not end’; ‘not end and end’ doesn’t sound right… flow right. So there we have it! It doesn’t need to make any sense whatsoever, but logic dictates the outcome here. Come December 22nd, we’ll be doing what we always have. Living on an amazing planet, hurtling through space, wondering what all the fuss was over. And then, I predict, a new prophecy will be discovered. A new date for the end of the world.
I’m throwing a blog party on December 21st. Pop along, if you like, and add a comment on that day’s post linking to your blog, a friend’s blog, an article you have written based on one or more of my little writing challenges, an article you really like on someone else’s blog, paint a picture, sing a song, promote yourself and others, or just come along and say ‘Hi’ to any other blogger who may be on line at the time. Or to the whole world, which will still be here on the 22nd.
Oh, the theme of the party is the End of the World. And Spectacular Solstice. And Yay! Betelgeuse survived another year. And New Beginnings. And December 21st. Lots of reasons to celebrate. And if, IF, the world comes to an end, well, we’ve had a nice little party to send her off!
It’s all about feeling good, having fun, and turning negativity around. And promotion, of course!
