Fortune Cookie

Crack the shell of uncertainty,
and peer into the future for answers.
Likely you’ll find none. Besides,
everyone else is still guessing

And most best guesses are wrong.
So, go ahead, take your best shot.
Predict tomorrow, then fuhgedaboutit,
and live your best life today.


I'm bellying up to the bar at dVerse Pub tonight with some of my good blogging buddies. So, set 'em up, Joe. Writing is never a lonely business here.


  1. true that...we know not what comes on the morn, so all we have it tonight...

  2. sounds like a pick up line doesnt it...haha...

  3. You know that old saying, "Life is what happens when we're making plans....through our printed fortune cookie."

  4. excellent advice, PattiKen, and in good poetic form... it's how I try (and don't always succeed) to live

  5. Good one! I love cracking into a fortune cookie to see into my future...always fun. But I agree with the philosophy expressed Soprano style in this very entertaining poem.

  6. Ha...most fortune cookies I break into don't even have fortunes - just silly sayings or pseudo words of wisdom. Never a real fortune.

    Had a cat named Fortune Cookie once. She was fantastic. Loved her loved her loved her.

  7. I believe them if I like what I am reading, why not. And today is the best, a nice reminder ~

  8. Ah, this ends tonight's reads on a great note. Thinking about the future can make you crazy! Sage advice.

  9. Love it - predict the future, forget about it, and live today.

  10. I'll meet you at the Poets Pub, Patti! Wise words- live your best life now. It's all we've got. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

  11. Oh yes, that is the way to live... live in now. I liked your words...

  12. fuhgedaboutit - lol , I love that!

  13. I never get a fortune from one of those cookies...every time I open one, it just gives me a fact of life...but that's okay, I'd rather keep my future a mystery and live for today-just like your poem says! :)


Thoughts? I would love to hear from you.
