Out at Sea

[I feel like sailing away.]

It's time to head out,
On our adventure for two.
I'm looking for excitement.
And I want to share it with you.
A wave might crash,
Lightning might flash.
But we'll keep together,
And just dash, swim, dash.
And perhaps we'll see
A mermaid or whale
Something spectacular
I can turn into a tall tale.
A scary encounter
With a sea monster in blue.
And how you saved me,
You wonderful you.
A peaceful island
Of sun and sand,
We'll have the best time,
Exploring that land.
And then off again,
To the next great place,
A twinkle in your eye
A grin on my face.

[Ahhh, adventure at sea.]

Let Me Tell You Something

[It's the end of the week, but I'm still plugging away. Some of us need to work every day.
But seriously, so tired.]

So, there I was. Sitting away, enjoying the nice weather, from this very nice day. And then comes the wind and a glimmer of light, they both bothered me greatly, and I tried to ignore them with all of my might. But I broke, I snapped, my mind really went wack, I yelled out into the day - Why don't you stop all of that!!!! It was quite the outburst. Quite silly looking I'm sure. But it was realy and honest, totally pure. I sit in the shade, I hide from the sun, that glimmer of light really had me undone. The wind? no worries, I've too much hair, there isn't a wind that can get into there. But the light, oh the light, it just wasn't right. I glared at the sun until it was finally night.

A Leading Moment

[Whenever you're wondering 'who's in charge here,' look for the person with the highest ground.]

Standing tall above high, the leader looked down at you and I. We'd lost our map, skinned our knees, we hadn't listened to our leaders pleas. It was a bad moment. I had many regrets. I could see my friend shaking with fret. But it was all for neigh, as our leader looked up to the sky, all that was heard was his long suffering sigh. My shoulders slumped, by unease was dumped, not a mean word was uttered, not even a harrumph. And so off we went on our descent, back to our home, from whence we were sent. To retrieve the item we had left, a bit of food, my friend hadn't wanted to heft. It would be a long trek, the weight of food balancing on my neck, we certainly won't be back in a sec. But soon enough still, our correction would be full-filled, and no longer will we disappoint we thought with a thrill. 

[Don't forget the food on a camping trip campers!]

Let's Just be Happy

[Cheerfulness if very nice.]

Bring in the band, call in the troops.
Dance all night!
Put this song on loop.
Clear off the floor,
Lay down some beats.
Let's kick back.
And rock with our feet.
Let's enjoy the day.
Celebrate the night.
Let's revel in the joy.
And let our spirits take flight.
Dance around in the corner
Take a partner for a spin.
Bring a smile to our faces.
Celebrate our win.

[Happy happy happy times, bring some cheer, squash some whines.]

Let's Make Up

[So I may have expressed some angry feeling yesterday - stupid copier - and now I feel we should all come together and hug this one out.]

I may have been angry.
Or terribly upset.
But that was no reason,
To make your eyes all wet.
My feelings are my own.
And you owe me nothing for them
So I should have burdened you
With my lack of zen.
I'm sorry.
I am.
And in full.
I'm sorry my words
Were so very uncool.

[Sharing the happy!]

Happy Bunny Day and all That Jazz

[I was feeling all excited about a great long weekend and then needed to produce a report that took hours and never got anywhere because I couldn't get the report program to work properly. I know you'all know how I'm feeling right now...]

I should be having the time of my life. But no, I'm annoyed my day is filled with strife. I should have gotten loads and loads done, but no, in the end I was completely undone. I should be giggling and playing with the kids, but no, I'm annoyed and walking around throwing lids. Things that seem easy, should be just that. I should not be huffing and puffing, steam shouldn't be blowing off my hat. I could SCREAM! But people would just think I was mean. No, it's their fault. Those people who made things seem all so easy, easy peezie, lemon squeezie. But it was wasn't easy, not at all. It was surely, my complete downfall. So boo on them, those terrible people, messing up my day, making me feel old and feeble. I hope they know, just how much they messed up. And they better fix it, because I"m not giving up! I will annoy and pester until my very last day, because I do't let up, I don't go away. They crossed the wrong person, when they messed up their codes, and they will regret it, loads and loads. 

[I'm very pestery when I want to be, bad programmers be warned....]

I'm Sharing...for now

[When I mess up, I find humor to be a great salve.]

What I told my friend was "I brake things all the time." What I really meant was "I brake your stuff every day."

Here, have chocolate.

I will share this with you,
I know you're blue.
I made a bad choice.
And you did too.

Why would you trust me?
I'm unreliable, can't you see?
I loose everyone's stuff,
 That's the person I happen to be.

I'm forgetful and it's rude.
Way worse than sneaking food.
I borrow for a while,
And then lose things with no style.

I admit that thing you lost,
Was petty boss.
But it mustn't have been that great,
If you let me take it on that date.
You could have said no.
Where is it now? I don't know.

But I'll try very hard to get it back.
Maybe it's just in my sack.
Or behind the couch or in the woods.
I swear, I did all that I could.
But keeping track of things? I'm no good.

So I'll share with you.
I know you're blue.
If I'd shared with me,
I'd be blue too.

[Haha, is there a lesson there? not sure....]

A Little Knowledge on Me

[Truth, a brownie is very different from a blondie.]

I like food.
All kinds of food. 
A little spice is very nice.
A bit of melon will get you yelling.
A row of cookies, oh gosh, oh lookies!
Every flavor pie, oh my
And of course the chips,
With ALL kinds of dips.
A bit of cheese if you please
Some spicy queso if you say so.
A bit of dill would be a thrill.
And then a drink so we can chill.

If you barbeque, invite me two.
I'll bring sangria,
I'm sure that will please ya.
And honey sticks! 
They are just the trick.
For making things yummy
Right and quick.
Great for parties,
Great for fun.
So yeah, invite me.
Invite everyone.

[Food, delicious food.]

Two Friends at Odds

[I need to secretly eat toast with cinnamon and sugar because 
little mice steal bites when my back is turned.]

They tippie tippie toe into each quiet room.
They sneak and they prance,
Over my snackies they loom.
And from each delicate morsel,
They steal just a bite or two.
And then off they scamper,
To repeat the process on you.
They are sneaks! I tell you.
Sneaky and brave.
To steal little bites,
And yet most they save.
So that I get the most,
But I'm still very annoyed.
I feel that with my emotions,
They very much have toyed. 
So I've set a trap for them.
A clever little trick.
To catch them up,
Silently, but quick.
And then we'll discover,
Who these little thieves are.
And I bet they aren't mice
Riding around in a tiny car.
No, they are much bigger I think,
And soon we'll know
Who are these creatures who slink.
Slink and slither
Tiptoe all a tither
To steal my yums.
And set me all a blither. 
A warning to all,
From me to you.
Don't steal my snackies
Or I'll catch you too. 

[I really like my toast with cinnamon and sugar.]

Listen Up

[A bit of good news for you I think.]

There are two of us here,
And there are more of us there.
We are waiting for you
Because we care.

Anyone else would just
Go about their day.
But us? We're waiting.
Waiting to play.

Waiting for you 
And a day outside.
Where we can go running.
From side to side

And we'll keep on waiting.
As long as it takes.
Because we're friends.
And friends don't take breaks. 

[Happy Monday!]

Bring it All Together

[A little free style Friday Fun]

With you, with me. We are together, that's how it should be. A bit of butter, a side of wine, we should hang out all the time. I'll bring the music, something good, and we'll spend the night eating food. A shout of cheer, a laugh or too, you are the reason the ocean is blue. 

[Happy Friday.}

A Bit of Power Goes a Long Way

[When you need a pep talk.]

Forget bluster. Don't deflect. Don't act silly. Don't be a wreck.
Pull your shoulders back as far as you can.
Lift your face to the fire.
Your boss isn't the boogeyman.
Speak clearly,
Look people in the eye.
Tell your self,
Your limit is the sky.
And above all else,
Including celebration pie.
Do not let those people,
Make. you. cry.

You are the cougar,
You have the lead,
You know what's needed,
For you to succeed.
Write it all down,
Make a list or two.
Bring out your A game.
I'm rooting for you.

Be ready to fail,
And then get back up.
It's not really failing,
If you never give up.

We are all in your corner,
We've all got your back.
We are still going to be there.
Bit success or the sack.

[Being brave is hard, who said it was easy? I'm rooting for you.]

A Bit of the Sea

[Feeling the beach calling? not to much longer now..]

The breeze calls to me
A soft whisper in my ear.

"Come enjoy the sun"
"Stay for the weekend my dear."

The waves crash softly,
Beckoning me nearer.

"Come enjoy the water"
"The view can't be clearer."

The animals scuttle by
Entertaining with their games

A dance just for you.
"What fun!" a girl exclaims. 

A bright sunny day,
Miles of beach to explore.
I feel rather selfish,
But I want more.

[Might be a good weekend for 'sweater weather' beach going. At least for us North Eastern folks.]

Crochet Brunch

[I like brunch. Lots of tea and cookies. A scone, maybe two scones, some tea. Some quiche, a sandwich, another scone. Excellent.]

I arrive in advance and scout my spot. Are you here? You are not. I settle myself closest to the buffet. I arrange my silverware, I don't play. I've got plans this sunny day, to have high tea in my favorite suit, gray. I order a cafe, I settle my napkin so. I'm waiting for you don't you know. The bell is rung, our service is begun. I fill my plate, until the space is all gone. A bit of berry, to make me merry. A side of egg, oops, some on my leg. A few slices of bread, to make the most, of this sunny-side up toast. Asparagus is good I guess, but cucumber sandwiches are the best. And then the scones, the reason I left home. The reason my belly will soon have a dome. A bit of butter, a smear of jam, a scone brings all the happiness that it can. And where it can't, it fills you up, and all the days worries, it'll interrupt. 

[Happy brunch y'all!]

A Bit of Balancing

[So admittedly, I don't balance so well.....]

I could lie and say I juggle, 
Tell a fib about balancing too.
But what problem would that solve?
Except creating a wedge between me and you.

I'm terrible at balancing.
Rotten to the core.
So I say we knock it off
And just say "No more."

It's ok to prioritize.
And no, you won't always be first.
But at least you know when it's your turn.
And I promise, you're so much better than the worst.

I want to give you all my attention.
And really have fun when we go out.
So let's agree I work too much.
But there's really no need to pout.

If you really need me.
Just say so and I'll be there.
There's no priority so important
That's I'd fail to show you that I care. 

[Here's hoping those two things get done.]

No Three Ways About It

[When you have three directions, but only two feet. Where will knowledge and logic meet?]

Sitting on the top,
Standing down below.
A rockstar singing in the distance
Where do we go? Where do we go?

Balancing two things
Standing on a ball
Ringing a bell with your toes
Just don't fall. Just don't fall.

I could tell you it's just logic.
Tell you it's not fear.
But being brave is hard.
It's not for everyone my dear. 

Standing up is right,
Standing back is easy.
Sometimes doing good
Is doing what makes you queasy.

[Say that! yeah. Filled me with determination, right at the end.]

You Can Be Angry

[I am a firm believer in the cauterizing emotion of anger, expressed in an appropriate manner.... like smooshing bananas in your hands because you are powerful and you can do that.]

I feel angry. Angry and mad. I'm mad at you for making me sad. You are not a good person, not nice to me. I'm angry at you for being hungry. I was going to eat that doughnut. I'd saved it special for me. But you went and took it, you're selfish and I see. I'm going to tell, to mom and everyone. I'm going tell everyone that you are no fun. You eat ALL the doughnuts and save none for me. You even take mine and that shouldn't be. So that's it you hear me. I've had enough, I'm going tell, I'm calling your bluff. And then everyone will know, everyone plus me. That you hurt my feelings and then I'll feel free.

Atop A Mighty Hill

[Sometimes, you just want to be slightly higher up.]

I'm the friend of Bill,
He lives on a hill.
We went to high school together,
He was kind of a buzz kill.
He kept saying "I am Mighty"
And embellishing slightly
All the great things he invented
Like the famous 'flashlighty."
But all-in-all, I count him the best
At being my friend, and that's a hard test.
There's a writing sample, 
And a speaking bit,
Most people don't pass, they really weren't fit.
But Bill I can tell you
Came out in force,
To show himself the best...of course.
He shows up at parties
And brings cheese and wine.
And he listens to me whine. 
All. The. Time.
He never complains,
Never leaves early.
He even cleans up!
Leaves my kitchen all pearly.
And at the end a long day.
I'd rather have Bill.
Then a bunch of 'friends'
That give me no thrill. 

[And now to go hug my friends!]

A Day Out

[Rather than off to labor away, let's head out to the lake today.]

Paul headed out,
On a sunny day in spring.
To get a bit of sun,
On his boat and everything.
He brought a few friends.
And a snack or two.
They were acting a bit bonkers.
Like birds at the zoo.
A scuffle occurred, a bit of dissent.
And down into the water they went.
Some gasping could be heard.
Some flapping of wings
The roar of a lion
If you can believe such things.

But not to fear,
It was not a lion they could hear.
It was good old chuck on the shore
Encouraging them to do even more.

Shaking their heads they headed off again.
Boating around,
Fun in the sun with friends.

Headed Home

[I love family. The blood relatives, the married in relatives, and the people you call brother or sister or mom or uncle or whatever because it's the best description possible and you just really love having that person in your life.]

After a long time searching,
I'm with my family today.
It took me a while to find them
Sometimes I thought I'd lost my way.
But today it's right here.
And I'll be with them always,
Going to each event, or waiting nervously in hallways.

Today is so special.
To me most of all,
I spent forever waiting,
Waiting for someone to answer my call.

But amazingly,
Happily still.
I found them, 
I found them.
And I'll never get my fill.

I'll hold them and hug them,
And cherish them to no end.
And even when travelling,
My love I'll send. 

[I hope everyone has a gun weekend with family and see you on Monday.]

I'm Laughing at You

[If you trip in a dramatic exaggerated way, I might giggle a little. As long as you're fine, that is.]

I fell over today.
I fell over really well.
Fell right on my wrist.
Now it's starting to swell.

I went to the doctor today,
A doctor named June.
She patched me up with a cast.
I was eating ice cream by noon.

I took a nap today.
On my comfy red couch.
I had to rest my arm.
It's not that I'm a slouch.

I learned to cook one-handed today.
And brush my teeth as well.
I can do anything one-handed.
Which is swell.

But I wish I hadn't tripped today.
It wasn't very fun.
But I admit when you giggled.
I knew I hadn't been undone.

You can recover today.
And be better tomorrow.
If you laugh with your friends.
Instead of reveling in sorrow. 

[I would probably laugh at me too if I'm honest.]

Head Up not Down

[Something I'm sure Ants don't do: When you're trying to look all cool and you trip on a rock and fall on your face.]

I look up and around
I look both ways around town.
I wait for the light every time.
I never cut in line.
I wear my helmet
When riding around.
I can't believe
I fell down.
And not just down.
But way down,
Down to the ground
And in the middle of town.
I skinned my knee
Ripped my T.
And, I know they didn't mean it,
But my friends made fun of me.
I was trying to impress you see.
A nice person
That I wanted to look at me.
But now they see me just fine.
I'm that ant that fell that time.

[Buck up though, it's memorable and I doubt clumsiness is seen as a huge flaw... or at least no one's held it against me and my dexterity is 8 and that's with a +2 modifier.]

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Summer Day

[This is how I picture my summer...]

I was splishing and splashing.
This party was smashing.
Not a wind was blowing
The waves weren't crashing.
Just a gentle bobble.
While I tip toed on the cobble
And the party gently ebbed and flowed.
My friends were all merry
As we sipped sweet perrieri
And the fishes swam around at our toes.
Three cheers to the weather
It couldn't be better
A wonderful day
To be free of my sweater.
And off we go,
To point, I don't know,
But where the wind takes me,
That's where I'll go. 

[Happy travels!]

Two of Us

[In the blink of an eye, we could run out of pie. 
And I really do thing, that woudl be sad for you and I.]

There was once just one but now there are two. A little bit of me, a little bit of you. We have separate opinions and thoughts and ideas. But we don't let all that, create unnecessary fears. A little difference is good, a little unique sublime. We can't just be copying each other all the time. My originality is inspiring, thought provoking, and new, and it gives you ideas of new things to try too. 

So hang with me my friend, and our differences will meld,
Into something even better, than old ideas so strongly held. 

[Happy to be back and back to business!]

I Climb Higher

[I love when the team gets together don't you?]

There is nothing I can't conquer.
No game I can't win.
With you, my friends,
I can do anything.
You lift me high
And catch me when I fall.
We win it all.
We laugh and grow strong
We call out
The things we do wrong,
We ask more of each other
And push for the best.
And in the end,
We are the greatest.

[Happy Friday everyone! Have fun hanging with your friends and teams and family and all those other people.]

I Asked for Three

[When you really wanted like a whole basket of fries and they only bring you a side.]

A bit together, never a part.
A trio of friends
Except someone forgot. 
I've only two of my trio so far.
I guess my friend.
Forgot to jump in the car. 
How can we play basketball?
It won't be any fun
I'll keep losing, if my friend doesn't come.
Two vs one?
A bit off balance I say
Gosh why oh why did this happen today?
I sent out invitations
Called to check in,
But now I have two!
Where has the third been?

Ok, I can do this.
I can continue my fun.
Maybe tomorrow we'll have everyone.
Today lets play tag,
Or go fishing at the park.
I'm going to enjoy this day!
Until it gets dark.

[Lesson learned, eat the fries and then order more. You can make a basket, it doesn't have to come that way.]

I'm Not At Work Today

[You'll never know, am I at work....or aren't I? Will the poetry still get read if I'm not there? I wonder...]

Whether I'm there or not, whether I'm here or there, whether we go or stay. Doesn't matter today. It's not the presence or absence, the then or there, it's the stories we tell, the secrets we bare. It's the friendship we foster, the camaraderie we build, it's the mastery we form, practicing together in a field. Whatever we share, whatever makes us the same. It makes us special, not weird or lame. I've got good feelings about you and I, I've got high hopes, of us reaching the sky. Be it in science, art, or math; Music or drama, or some other path. I'm ready to trudge with you, and gain new heights. I think now is the time, now the time is right. 

[Keep climbing those mountains y'all! I believe in you.]

I Will Stop Right Here

[That moment when you've been running so long you forgot your were running for a split second and then you wake up and realize your still running and you're so bummed.]

This spot is the spot where I stop.
I will not go further, I'll drop.
My legs are worn out,
My body is not stout.
I really don't know what this walk is all about.

I will not go further from here.
I will not go further my dear.
My feet are all gone,
This is no longer fun.
I'm really not loving this a ton.

I'm pretty much out of gas.
So go ahead and give me your sass.
You can laugh all you want.
I really won't front.
I've reached the end of this hunt.

I've succeeded as far as I can
I still can't believe that I ran.
Now I plan to sit here.
And this carrot with no fear.
So please go away now my dear.

[Some people just like to eat peace.]

Feeling Crabby

[March is a lovely month isn't it?]

In a few short months the people will come. 
To play in the sand and lay in the sun.
To laugh and eat food.
All the while,
I sit and watch 
With a great big smile.

I've a plan you see,
To bring joy to me.
To pinch little toes
To chase children into the sea.

I'm looking quote gleefully 
Forward for the day.
When the silly boys and girls
Come to the beach to play.

Watch out little children!
Watch your fingers and toes.
I may be hiding behind that shell.
No ones sees, no one knows.

[And there you go, ruined another vacation!]

A Guessing Game

[When the answer just isn't all that clear.]

Folks, Our little friend here needs a bit of cheering up. Why don't we play a guessing game ok?

What is red and white
And sleeps all night
Begs for treats,
Get's into fights.
Fears all cats,
Short, small or fat.
And cannot stand,
The sound of that?

A horse you say?
No where, no way.
A horse won't beg
Even when they play.

A Snake perhaps?
Does a snake take naps?
Surely there's a better answer
Than that.

How about a pig,
Cute as can be.
But remember,
A pig can't be as cute as me!

A dog!
You're right!
Now isn't that a sight.
Cute as can be
And in red and white.

[Happy Friday!! Enjoy a lovely weekend.]

A Few Too Many New Ideas

[When you have 4 meetings in one day and your brain just shuts off. And then you get hungry.]

I could stare at this view forever.
I could stare for ever and a day.
I could stare until the clouds roll in.
And the sun goes away.

My mind has collapsed.
Narry a spark is found
In my syntax.

It's a puzzling thing.
To feel not a sizzle
Or a bling.
Or even just a tingaling.

To feel your limbs move around.
But have no idea how you got through town.

And then you find yourself lying down.
On the ground.
Staring off into a wonderland that you found. 

I may work too much I think.
Or perhaps this is instinct.
A little rest for the mind
From time to time.

Either way, I do not mind.

[I think my mind too could use a hike.]

Wednesday, March 1, 2017

A Pair of Us

[I'm ready for some bud-time.]

Listen, I'm not saying I see me in your eyes or anything. But I do really enjoy hanging out with you. 

It's cool, I get it.

I have work friends. 
We see each other every day.
We work, we do not play.
We laugh about sports and 
Discuss bad weather.
We discuss the office
And the need for a sweater.
We do not hangout after work.
Honestly, not seeing work friends is a perk.

I see them when I walk in,
And they see me and where I've been.
Off to the kitchen for coffee or tea,
Off to the bathroom, they always see
Off to a meeting or sneaking out for lunch.
I always see them!
So no to weekends, thanks a bunch.

  I want to feel the calm of quiet.
Not the questions 'are you still on that diet?'
Or the eyes ever tracking me
To and fro,
I think they know more about what I don't know.
And they always always no where I go.

So no no no to weekends.
I'll see them tomorrow.
I'll see them next week.
I see them more than my mom!
That's weak.

[Ok, maybe just once.]

Reaching Ever Higher

[I have to say, some days I just coast and I think that's ok. I want to try my best every day, but I don't feel my best every day so I just can't get there. But that doesn't mean I give up entirely. I never give up entirely. I just plot instead of do. It's essentially the same thing except plotting sounds cooler then laying around staring at the cats.] 

I fell to the ground the other day. I was walking along and then down I went and there I lay. I thought quite a lot about why I was there. And there was a moment when I thought it certainly was unfair. There were times when I thought I'd just stay. And there were times when I screamed to the sky, not me, no way.  But I knew to the depths of who I am, that if I didn't pull myself up, then I'd just be back down there again. So with my hands I dug in and from the dirty ground is where this story begins. I embarked on a journey that day. A journey that through highs and lows, would show me my way. I suffered many an agonizing defeat, but each time I fell down, I renewed my struggle to my feet. And when I managed to rise to my knees, I knew deep down, that eventually I'd succeed. With each retreat I grew ever stronger, building upon bravery, not fearful any longer. And where my energy was sapped, bravery gave me all of that back. It filled me up with courage and resolve. This torture, this trap, I was surely going to solve. I had all the tools I needed, and with my new confidence I succeeded. In one last shattering gasp, I was back upon my feet at last. I breathed in cool air again, not dirtied by the ground at my chin. The wind gently brushed along my ear. I felt exhilaration now, not fear. I'd faced a true test of will, and I had succeeded and it had given me a thrill. I think now, I will try to climb over this next hill. 

[See, the struggle for elephants is real.]

A Snack Before Dawn

[Another good weekend, it might just be spring. I'm very hesitantly calling this spring.]

A little snack before dawn.
A bit of a bite can't be wrong.
I've got a day packed with tasks.
A little snack is all I ask.
So many chores to get done.
I just need a snack, just one.
A sweet bite of cheer.
Might keep me going, oh dear.
This might be too much.
Ok, wish me luck.

[He's hoping you got that snack.]

One Two Three

[A little strength in numbers I think.]

One. A little bean.
A baby owlie one.
Such a cutie hootie,
Such a bundle of fun.

Two. All strength and power.
Encased in love and hope.
A burly beauty bounty.
Who never says nope.

Three. So sweet and kind.
A beacon for all and one.
A bringer of equality.
For me and you a ton.

A family together.
Each for all and one.
Nothing can rip them apart.
Because together again they come.

 [Have a wonderful, awesome, exciting, revitalizing, rejuvenating weekend.]

Who Says I'm Early?

[For those of you seeing a certain kind of candy at the grocery store. It's ok, you can eat it now.]

I think we might be a wee bit early this year Fred.
I'm sure it's fine.

Be early,
Or be late,
Don't worry
Don't hate.

Be friendly,
Be nice.
Ask once,
Thank twice.

Share liberally,
Be kind,
Don't yell,
Open your mind.

Be free,
Be happy,
Being nice,
Isn't sappy.

Share a meal,
Read a book,
Learn to dance,
Learn to cook.

Brave a storm,
Brave the wind,
Write a letter,
Post to send.

Hug your pal,
Hug your friend,
Hug a stranger,
Go where you haven't been.

Learn a lesson,
Try something new.
Learn to listen,
Try a few.

Be you.

[ And eat candy, it's very important. ]

A Crab in the Water

[When the waters get choppy, bring a martini- better shaken, not stirred.]

I ordered my drink with no lemon,
I received lemonade.
I asked for a cute bob,
I was given a wave with a fade.
I picked fushia for my cake,
And received Pepto Pink instead.
I bought mom a green dress for the wedding,
She showed up in red.
I asked for no green beans please,
I received copious snap peas.
I pleaded for a polite simple toast,
I received a bawdy roast.
I ordered a fancy white carriage,
I received a crazy entry into marriage.

I laughed all night long,
Because I got you and this song.
And we haven't ever not gotten along.

[I'm liking this current, let's point this thing south and keep goin']

A Kitten Chases

[It's Tuesday and the week is just starting for some, guess we better get out there and have some fun.... e'hem, working.]

I like to work more than play
I gladly work, every day.
In sun and shine, 
A day so fine,
I'd gladly go
Work my time.

Work is bliss,
I'd never miss.
Filing that, 
Filing this.

A good days work,
Getting things done.
I never finish,
But I've already won.

Outdoors in the garden,
Comfy at my desk,
Chasing after kids,
Picking up someone's mess.
Writing a long story,
Picking out a dress,
Helping take some pictures,
Cooking my finest.

It doesn't matter the job,
Or place.
Working can be awesome
Just check the smile on my face.

[yes, yes, not ALWAYS true, but we gotta reach for the stars right?]

Monday Remembering the Past

[Got up, fed the kids, got them ready for school. School is closed today for President's day. They forgot to update the school calendar. Sigh.]

A leader, a guide, a brave individual who stands up, rather than hide.
Someone who cares deeply, about one and all.
A champion that does not cower, but stands tall.
An intelligent person, knowledgeable in all things.
Maybe not an expert, but willing to listen as an expert sings.
A decision maker tried and true,
Listing to me, listening to you.
A fare person, a thoughtful thinker,
With our lives, they chose not to tinker.
A caring soul, not selfish, not at all.

Bravery is lost when the individual's rights are tossed.
Valor is not a thing, when the people cannot sing.
A treasure is not won, when it can't be shared with everyone.
Peace is just a dream in the sky, until everyone gets a piece of pie. 

Of the Presidents that have passed,
They tried to think of us, even to the last.
They took action,
And at times, their success, had traction.
They made changes for the better,
To bring health to all and entice better weather.

A champion of the people,
A leader to one and all,
In history, The President, stood tall.
Against injustice,
Against hate,
Against the forces,
That try to sway fate.

We honor the past,
We search for the future,
We raise our voices,
Because democracy cannot survive,
Without people to nurture.

My Way Day

[Today is in fact, My Way Day. Which is perfect because it is also, finally Friday Day and Thank Goodness the week is Over Day.]

I'm a fan of the favorites,
A bit of spice is divine,
I do love chocolate,
I want it to be all mine.

I like a bit of rocky road,
A slice of apple pie.
But never never cinnamon,
It gets up your nose, and then Oh my!

A cup of hot coffee
With a splash of creme liquor,
A few biscotti, extra crunchy
Makes me scream for more!

Freshly baked pound cake,
With a side of fresh whipped cream
A bowl of strawberries,
With a touch of vanilla bean.

And don't forget the bonbons
With lovely cream filled hearts,
They make you happy from the inside out,
Fruity, chocolate, and even extra tart.

[At the end of the day, just do it your way.]

A Day of Mistery

[I couldn't find my pen today.]

I was a bit lost today.
I couldn't find my way.

I looked all around 
But didn't recognize what I found.

I didn't see my things.
Nothing had that familiar ring.

And just at the back of my mind
I wondered if I'd ever get out of this bind.

I thought I had a bag,
But there was nothing but this rag.

And the cloth I thought was a sheet,
Was really some leaves at my feet.

I was getting rather distressed,
Until.. and I really must confess.

I looked at how I dressed.
And well, you've probably guessed the rest.

It was a dream.
"gah!" I let out with a scream. 

[It was that kind of day.]
