Oh goodness me, what do I see

An errant kite caught in the tree ?

What shall we do, too high to reach

How can we span this giant breach ?

When I was young I used to climb

These twisted branches all the time

Amazing that I never fell

Yet still have loads of tales to tell.

Though apple trees can’t grow too tall

In fact they seem to be quite small

The limbs all jumbled in a bunch

There’s scarcely room to nibble lunch

I’ll settle for just bread and cheese

Beneath the fragrant apple trees !

 

 

RELOCATION ( 2018 ) 2018/06/13

I acquired a friend quite recently

Who lives just across the room from me

Whereby my pillow I constant see

His acrobatic activity.

He lives in this house made of thick glass

He makes no noise and doesn’t harass

A more perfect mate one could not ask

Although his presence creates small task.

He requires a meal but once a day

Always remains clear out of my way

Daily the water starts to turn gray

Friday’s the day we flush dirt away.

I still have this friend at my address

I pray he moves soon so I can rest  !

 

HIS NAME IS PHELPS, A BEETA FISH

 

 

 

THE SAME AS YOU ( 2018 ) 2018/06/01

A little bit of heaven’s scratching at the door

With sounds of adoration I cannot ignore

Each morning when I wake I sense the anxious plea

Tis not another creature seems so fond of me.

We come from different worlds, this I comprehend

But I’d be quite lost if he couldn’t be my friend

I want to thank You Lord, You sure knew what to do

Teaching all Your creatures to love the same as You !

 

 

TEACH SOME MANNERS ( 2018 ) 2018/05/18

The dampness seeps inside the glass

And seems to weep along the pane

A labyrinth of life’s morass

Attacking all, again, again.

Oh would that we might rule the path

And currents that control the Main

With the power like our God hath

To teach some manners to the rain !

 

THIS HOROSCOPE ( 2018 ) 2018/05/13

The moon must be up in the sky

I have this feeling I could cry

But there is nothing wrong with me

Not anything that I could see ?

Perhaps the stars got in my eyes

While I was busy watching skies

Or maybe Venus went astray

In retrograde and lost her way.

This horoscope will have to keep

I think it’s time to go to sleep !

 

 

OPEN ALL OUR EYES ( 2018 ) 2018/04/20

I often think this plan we’ve made

Needs lots of help, a large band-aid

Like an old game we used to play

To whisk our idle hours away.

Remember this now if you please

When you’re on “Broadway” take your ease

You do not have to go to “jail”

Just whiz on by, do not post bail.

However when you pause on GO

Make ready for the final blow

For life is one great big surprise

It’s meant to open all our eyes !

 

FRESH AIR ( 2018 ) 2018/04/15

This morning we opened the windows wide

To let fresh air swish around inside

The breezes blew all of one accord

In every space where the dust had stored.

While a little voice whispered to me

Aren’t you glad to be young and free

Well, that’s half true, I have to admit

But young’s not how I’d describe the fit !
