A Writer’s Life

A writer’s life for me
there’s nothing I’d rather be
playing with words is fun
reading out loud when I’m done
bringing my muse out to play
and writing this poem today.

Stars And Stripes

Stars And Stripes

All wrapped up
in bright red stripes
against a navy sky
with stars in her eyes.

Unfurling herself
naked to the winds
and oh, what a view!
Red, white and blue.

Happy Memorial Day! Summer starts soon.

Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Mirror Mirror On The Wall

The mirror reflects all
the good and the bad
nor judge what it sees
and never gets mad.

Breaking a mirror
seven years bad luck
fractures your view
until you sweep it up.

The mirror never worries
or tells any lies
the mirror doesn’t feel things
only we agonize.

People Watching

I sashay down the busy street
my reasoning is quite concrete
the storefronts offering sales and heat
my happy feet they keep the beat.

The many honking cars compete
and traffic lights keep traffic neat
I stop to gawk and take my seat
I watch the crowd without conceit.

As they walk by I look to greet
in case our eyes should chance to meet
and meeting them is such a treat
as I head home, my day complete.
