(VERY) EARLY MORNING PROGRESS…

Couldn’t sleep—what a shame–

Had playtime to reclaim…

Three or more tries

Under night skies,

But with a clearer brain!

He completed reconnecting

Both spur and runaround track connecting….

All rail joiners fit

He was done with it,

Couldn’t test with the power pack defecting!

Musical power packs,

Changing over to  power tracks…

When he’s done

both layouts’ll run,

He’ll go on to more creative acts!

EMERGENCY SUPPLIES!

His shakiness increased,

Didn’t have much to eat…

A protein bar

He found so far.

His necessary treat1

With blood sugars dipping low,

He really should test to know…

Exactly how far

Down we are,

His “118” getting low!

ALMOST FRIGHT

The blogger ended in flight

Before could sign off last night…

today at work

He felt like a jerk,

For a while it wouldn’t work right!

Repeatedly it shut down,

He signed off with a frown…

Waited an hour

To regain its power

And now he’s going to town!

–J.E.C.

NEEDS SAVING

Troubles keeping from sleep,

Oh what struggles to keep…

Time to let go

Before he sinks low,

He’ll be an exhausted heap!

Desperation comes,

The pinnacle of his sums…

Adding up fast

To disastrous blast,

Never ready for what comes!

His dad had a similar feat,

Struggling in his sleep…

Sat bolt upright:

“Lord–You take it, Alright?”

And fell into deep, peaceful sleep!

Obsession easily comes,

Will you stick to your guns…

Give it the Lord–

Peace then restored–

Doze off after a few “ho-hums”.

SNOW FLURRIES FLY

New Englanders–no worries–

These are just a few scattered snow flurries…

They’ve come and gone

So we can move on,

Donning warm woolies and furries!

IN HOLDING PATTERN

(Haiku)

Walk on dry pavement

Thinking of the snow to come

Might be calling out

Man’s struggle with drifts

Many legendary tales

Not all of them survived

Walking on pavement

Thinking about fifteen inches

Winter battles come

–J.E.C.

VAGARIES OF MASSACHUSETTS WEATHER

IT WAS nice and cold,

But the fifties this weekend we’re told…

Bouncing around

In winter we’ve found

More likely to foster a cold.

Tonight we expect rain,

How long it will freeze can’t say…

Supposedly warm

By tomorrow’s form,

Much snow will wash away!

Is this our January thaw,

Before February’s cold and raw…

Massachusetts waits

To see if it skates,

Until Spring flowers grow tall!

Began raining by this time,

Slushy sidewalks are slimed…

Slippery-wet

It’s warmer yet,

Temperature’s on the incline!
