Submerged in Edelmann daydreams
of pushing buttons and fixing holes,
I find myself adrift—
a nowhere man floating
with all the lonely people in a sea of monsters,
doing my darnedest
to avoid the meanies of mindless politics
and a rising death toll.
Just when I think it’s all too much,
birdsong pierces Pepperland
and, with a little help from my friends,
I realize we’re all together now
and all you need is love.

While I realize many may not be able to fully appreciate this poem, I am unapologetic. All I will say is Edelmann refers to the creator of the animated film The Yellow Submarine. If you are not familiar with the movie or the eight Beatles song references, please take the time to look them up. The message is timeless and much needed these days.

Beautiful words I loved it! These are trying times indeed. I'm having a hard time hanging in there. People have totally lost it these days. Your art has been enjoyable! So pretty I like patterns. I see your posts more than you think I just scan.
