Different Strokes

Different Strokes

What one brews in the teapot in order to degust,
another views with horror just short of real disgust.
That painting that is cherished by one may well be hated
by another viewer who fails to be elated.
Be it arias or rock songs, be it reggae, jazz or rap,
a singer loved by one, someone else may judge as crap.
The alluvion of culture that daily is collected
and cherished by one person, by another is rejected.
So what’s popular will change  from day to day or year to year
according to the palate, the vision or the ear.

Prompt words today are teapot, whatever, degust, alluvion and singer.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
