Sometimes I can’t help remembering

My great grandma’s house in early spring

Oh such joy those old visions bear

Of beaches, sand and the salty air.

The wonderment of childhood may be

The remembrance of past memory

And lifestyles that have all gone astray

With the pleasantries of yesterday.

I wish that I could capture the time

Instead of watch as our lives decline

So sad, dear Lord, what was meant to be

Got lost in this new posterity !

I understand the worm and grub

And other insects in the shrub

But there is one great mystery

What can mosquitos do for me ?

Of all the vermin in the world

At which insecticides are hurled

Along with lice and flies and such

Mosquitos bother me too much !

I wish I knew just what to do

Since they escape my swatter’s “shoo”

I truly hope that heaven’s clean

And void of vermin on the scene !

There’s an awesome place which I once knew

Where I was sure childhood dreams  came true

As the children played the whole day through

Like those angels up in heaven do.

Oh how I wish I could join them there

With peace and joy, happiness and prayer

And spend my days alive and aware

In the glowing kindness of God’s care !

 

 

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

 

 

 

COMRADERY ( 2018 ) 2018/06/04

As I awake to morning’s sound

The dawn’s exploding all around

I hear bees hum and cats meow

The birds all sing while dogs bow-wow.

The noise of traffic fills the air

While beeping horns annoy and blare

The sidewalks soon begin to crowd

Street vendors hawking goods aloud.

Oh what delight each daylight brings,

A joyous heart that hums and sings,

Along with happiness and glee

Contributes to comradery !

 

 

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 !
