Saturday Centus 141 Spinning...

 This week's Saturday Centus with Jenny Matlock is a picture prompt, first person, one hundred words exactly.

Have fun.  Enter.  Read others.

If I were in charge of this new year
I’d hold the world in my hand
Spinning and creating
As if I were God’s Vice President
In charge of changes

Spinning
I’d place rain where needed
I’d slow the rain when there’s too much
I’d make the wild plants grow for wild things
And tame plants grow for the civilized
Spinning

Spinning
I’d grow all children perfectly
Complete when they’re born
Instruction book included
With diagrams for the parents
Spinning

Spinning
I’d throw all bad things
Away
Hoping we’d learn this year
To love, to share, to live
Spinning

Spinning...

What a wonderful world, we must aim for, and nothing less for our children. I just noticed, more pain in Aurora, Co this time, what we sure need fast is love sweet love for all.... I pray/hope/believe we can all do it! We just have to.

We need new peope to run our world, everything, everywhere is spinning out of control. We need to take the greedy and set them aside and let them live like most common folk. They probably wouldn't last a day or two, pinching pennies to feed their children. How do we continue to live in a world that neglects children and the elderly the most. I vote you for you "As if you were God's Vice President" and this world would definately spin right back into shape. I like your world.

Our children will be in charge one day - let's hope they are kind and wise like this boy.

Well done!
