Just Call Me Crazy



Spontaneous gives
the appearance
of mentally unstable.
I rather like the view.

Let me wear bright orange
when the rest of the world
is dressed in drab shades of normal.

Smile a smug smile and introduce
me as unique, and I will respond,
“Thank you, but just call me crazy.”

I, too, love the "drab shades of normal". Great response to the prompt, Susie. I am, as always, Behind.

I like bright orange instead of drab shades of normal ~ Lovely share ~

Crazy has so many connotations ... your take is great!!! I listened to Patsy Cline sing 'Crazy' yesterday on an old CD ... another good kind of crazy.

Wonderful, I love this. Unique is often termed as crazy, or other less than desirable definitions. Unique works for me.
