A Summer Away



[That moment when you wish you'd gone camping for the summer.]

As if I liked camping
As if I liked trees
I'm a coffee shop girl
Extra cream if you please
Sure I like birds
And little critters too
But I'm happy right here
I can see animals on the tube.
The bugs are what gets me
Too many legs for me.
I'll hang out right here
Where it's totally bug free.
But you go ahead
Have all the fun you want
I'll be waiting for you.
When you want to eat and not hunt.

[Mmmm, doughnut and coffee....]

Meeting at Dawn



[Star-crossed and meant to be, two happy friends, meeting for tea.]

I happened upon, two friends meeting for tea. And they were remarkably, nice to me. They invited me in, offered me pie, they told me stories about birds flying high. I was enamored by them. Those two old friends. They were nice, so nice, they chatted till the end. It made me think, that I had some serious things to do, if I wanted to end my days, with such a great friend or two. So off I went, a new vision in mind, about friends who are welcoming, friendly, and kind.

[Let's go friends! One new friend at a time, 
we're going to share some cheerful, happy, hilarious rhyme.]

A Lead In Charge



[I'm thinking that perhaps, someone other than me needs to be in charge.]

I was thinking of leading,
But not anymore.
You're all a bunch of trouble
Don't look at the floor!
You don't listen, or behave
You yell and run around
It's like showing up at a rave!
I could be home
Baking a pie.
But no, I show up here
And OH MY!
There were things flying everywhere
A mess on the floor
And I'm telling you now.
No More
No More.
You will clean up
You will follow the rules
You'll do what your told
Or I'll fire all you fools!

[Maybe I will lead, I have a rhythm to it (ps. it's not nice to call people fools)]

The Fam is All Here



[My latest set of patterns. A bit of everything there.]

A strong four
Ready to assemble
Ready to roar.
Never alone
Never on your own
Ready to come running
Strong to the core.
Just call out
Shout!
We'll be there
We know what you're about.

[I am a big fan of my family/posse, keeping them close is very important.]

Another Friday, Another Sunny Day



[Fridays, time for fun.]

On Monday we worked
On Tuesday, Wednesday lurked
On Thursday, I took a break
On Friday, I bake.

I bake cookies and pies.
A potato, side of fries.
Candy so good
Sister cries.

On Saturday I run
For fun
I play
All day
I excel
At sleeping the day away.

On Sunday
We prepare for Monday
And hope for one day
When Monday
Is a day off.

[Happy Friday!]

A Bit Like You



[I'm a twin, so this rhymes with me.]

I look like you, you look like me.
We are both little hoppers
And a bit care free
We laugh at flowers
We cry at tea
We sing in the wind
Twiddle Dee Dee
We are quite different
For sure
And for real
But all those differences
Are no big deal.
Because you're like me
And I'm like you
And when we're mean to eachother
We're both quite blue.

[Cheerful! Happy! A bit of a hug!]

A New Adventure



[When the day darkens, lighten it up!]

I will embark, and set my path. For a fun new place, to run and laugh. There are such places, I'm sure I'll find. And it's there I want to be, there I want to spend my time. Not sure what I'll discover, not sure what I'll see, but I'm sure I'll enjoy learning how fun an adventure can be. And you can come, just pack up your stuff, I've got room for you, plenty is enough. It'll be fun together, wandering around, and with you there, I'll always be found.

[What a nice August, almost over though. Soon it'll be school and halloween all the time!]

A Night by the Sea



[Watched the solar eclipse today, it was magical]

The darkness comes first
Creeping slowly before a sprint to the finish
Then darkness
A cold wind has started,
It teases me.
I remember a time as a child
A night cold and dark like tonight.
But no smell of salt
Not like now.
The sea calls to me
Beckons me forward
Calls me to its depths
I dive, deeper still
Ever darker
I drink my fill
Swimming, swimming
Swimming still.

[Hmm, now what animal could that be? Puzzle for the day]

Friends for All Time



[I don't think we're peas in a pod. More like books in a bag. 
We're similar, but always bumping into each other.]

I go when you stay.
I climb when you play.
I succumb when you run into the fray.
But not today.
Today I'm going to be you.
And you be me too.
Be excited about cheese
Always say please
Eat the carrots and the peas
Then ice cream from the freeze.
I'll be silly and sometimes bad.
But always rad.
And wearing the latest fad
And never sad.
And now I'll be me.
And you be you too.
Because that's what friends do.

[I'll be you, and you be me too.]

Put your Anger in the Right Place



[I've got one of these, comes out with its 8 arms and messes up the place. You?]

A bubbling at first, alerts me to the storm. 
A wreckage of anger.
Fighting to be born.
I could push it down, reject the onslaught.
But what woudl be the benefit,
Of a fight not fought.
I say, "Bring on that storm."
Let your me run free.
Let the raging begin and end just as soon.
And you'll sipping tea by noon.
But holding it in, can take all day
And then you won't see the beauty
In a sunny ray.
You'll storm and fill the day with clouds.
When you could have gotten over it.
With a few stomps and yelling loud.
But be careful
And always remember the cause
It's you that caused it
Not anyone that gave you pause.
So rage on your own
Share your anger with only you
Because being mean to others
Is something you should never do.

[Self recitation? might be...]

A Lilac and Spruce



[I'm not saying I like lilac, but I'm not saying I like spruce either.]

A pie in the face is what I deserve ace. A kiss on the cheek would just make me look weak. I'm a maverick, a fiend, I'm not nice, I'm mean. But for you I'll change, for you I'll evolve, but don't expect me to be different, I'm a puzzle you can't solve. There's no key for me, no off button you can see. And just when you think you have me all figured out, I'll just reset and then run about. Enjoy me as I am, then wait for me to change, remember to relax, and I'll come running like a bang!

Love the chaos, love the friend.

[Like all special family holidays, there's that one unpredictable friend we love so much.]

Did You Hear That?



[Another weekend gone. More gardening completed. But oh goodness, 
I could do without the weed-wacker.]


Sitting in the sun, a bit of grass in my hair.
Listening to the rustle
Of my cute ones, the pair.
The giggles are electic
Exciting each cell
A joy to watch them run
A happiness that does compell
I want that kind of spirit
I want that level of fun
I want to enjoy it too
So let's go kids! Here I come.


[And another week to go, but just watch me, go go go]

A Change of Scenery



[I needed to get outside. Enjoy a bit of air. So I thought, why don't we all go there!]

There's time my friend, for you and I. We fight sometimes, we make each other cry. But that's how you learn, to get along. When you come back together and admit you were wrong. When you think of your friends, before yourself. When you work together, to defeat the envious elf. You hold together, tight as stone, you don't abandon each other, don't leave a friend alone. I'm headed out now, to see a chick-a-dee. A good friend, to me. And I hope you are too, and I wish you all the best. Now head off now! Go see the rest.

[Happy Friday! Have a fun weekend.]

Fun Outdoors



[I like little green bunnies. They are the cutest.]


You know when you go, hopping to and fro, you mix people up, wondering "where are they headed?" "I don't know."
And I think, "you know what" I know where they go, they're headed to the valley where the snow doesn't go. 
They head there in groups, in gatherings, and flocks. To throw off their jacket, sweaters, and smocks.
In the valley the sun shines each day of the year, and the weather is warm and the sky always clear.
Head there now, and meet them for tea, I'll be headed there too, you can meet me.


[mmmm, warm every day. Would like that.]

Let Me Pose a Question



[That time when that person came running up and you got all excited because someone was rushing over to chat, and then all they said was 'can you hold my keys?']

Left out again and I'm feeling cold. I was standing in line, but perhaps I'm too old. No one picked me, didn't looked at me twice. I was ready to play, I would have been nice. Oh well, their loss, because I pretty great. They won't have as much fun, and that's their fate. I'm going shopping and buying new shoes. See how they like, feeling like old news.

[I'd pick you..swear.]

The Spring Flowers are All Gone



[It occurs to me that soon school will be back and the kids will be gone and the weather will be getting cold and the flowers will be replaced by orange leaves.]

The air is getting cooler
Not much, but just enough.
To remind me I'm out of time
To lay about in the buff
The days are getting shorter
No time for me you know
To get a bit of color
On my skin and toes
Soon the weather will change
The winds will being cool air
I'll be sad to grab my sweater
The seasons are sometimes unfair.

[Happy August!]

I Slept too Late



[Back to the day-to-day....meh, let's play]

I was asleep when you called
Slumbering in the dawn
I had work to do, but I hadn't recalled
I was deep in thought
And try as I might
I was caught.
One dream morphed into another.
And I could barely recover
But I'm here now
Ready to start
But now the day is over
Tomorrow, I'll take work to heart.

[Tomorrow, yes, tomorrow.]

A Puppy of a Time



[The summer has past the tipping point! I'll sure miss it, need to get out there and enjoy the weather for another month before it's all gone!]
I may say that I want you to go.
I may push you away when you want to stay.
I may encourage, cajole, and demand.
But friend.
I hope you understand.
I want you to stay!
I do, I promise you.
But I also don't want you to stay.
I'm tired and ready for you to go
On your way.
I'm conflicted!
And unsure
But my heart is pure
And if I wasn't so tired
I'd say STAY!
for sure.

[Happy 1/2 past summer! hahaha... soon it will be craft show weather. The best time of year.]
