Each day I wake, I thank the Lord

Because I find I’m still onboard

I’m not too sure if that’s a gift,

Until life’s haze begins to lift

I check to see if I’m all there

My fingers, toes, my face and hair

Both arms and legs are working fine

On a ten scale, I’d guess I’m nine !

I’m not a fan of winter chill

A runny nose or feeling ill

Fact is I’d like to outlaw snow

In any place I choose to go.

But I don’t wish to be extreme

Or shatter others and their dream

Though I don’t ski, I know it’s fun

I have seen hundreds on a run.

Perhaps I’ll winter in the house

Snuggled up like a hearthside mouse

I pray that I’ll keep warm till spring

When sunshine smiles on everything !

 

FIX IT OVERNIGHT ( 2017 ) 2017/09/13

Oh Superman, what shall I do

I need some one who’s just like you

A hero brave will not suffice

He must be wise and extra nice.

Besides his strength, he must be kind

With all the courage one can find

Cause this is a tremendous task

There is a favor I must ask !

I am no longer young but old

Not of much use or so I’m told

This world we live in  has a crack

We want to have our freedom back

There’s no one left to make it right

Could you please fix it overnight ?

There’s a stranger in my parlor

How did he get inside

I thought I heard his noisy chirp

Wherever does he hide ?

Well,  never mind the sound he makes

I need to find him how,

The miracle of all of this

He’s in my house right now !

I guess I’ll learn to live with him

What else is there to do

Perhaps one day he’ll say farewell

Goodbye and toodle-loo !

Oh silly goose where have you been

What puddles are you waddling in

Can you reduce that honking noise

Perhaps you could acquire more poise ?

Just love your feathers, oh so soft

That make it to my sleeping loft

Your tiny goslings are so sweet

Tis sad to think, one day they’re meat !

Besides your noisy geese chorus

There is much good you’ve brought to us

With tales from famous Mother Goose

Midst spins of twists and turns unloosed !

 

 

 

A BING CHERRY ( 2017 ) 2017/07/28

Oh how I wish that I could be

A cherry on a cherry tree

I’d wear a gown of frothy pink

As early spring was on the brink

Rains soon would flush my garb away

Uncovering my round display

While time and warmth help me to grow

Soon all my cherry colors glow

And so, my friends when birds arrive

It takes some effort to survive

I’ll make it through to harvest time

Now isn’t that sweet and sublime

Please tell me after you’ve  seen me

Am I a top notch bing cherry ?

 

UNWIND ( 2017 ) 2017/07/16

I often dream of many things

Like butterflies and fairy wings

Or cotton candy, oh so pink

The sunrise when it’s on the brink,

A baby’s laughter chiming in

My father’s face wrapped in a grin

Those yesterdays that we forget

New people that we haven’t met,

The brand new joys we mayhaps find

As all our destinies unwind !
