STRANGE DREAMING

SOME STRANGE DREAMING!

Last night I did strange dreaming,

I’d done too many posts,

Burying my own works

Somewhere along the coast…

I could hear them from a distance

Above the ocean roar,

But I have surely done this

Many times before!

Oh…it’s practice not just dreaming

It’s very sad but true,

When I cannot keep up my end

I post more of “you”…

Been known to keep on burying

My own work the most,

Sometimes I think it is you-all

That I want to toast…

Sometimes I think it is you-all

That I prefer to toast!

IN-BETWEEN SNACKS

IN-BETWEEN SNACKS

Deer and turkeys gather to snack

In-between the highway and the exit ramp….

Depending on the food source,

In there they will camp….

In-between the highway and the exit ramp!

A POETIC PORTRAIT

A POETIC PORTRAIT

(tune of THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS)

A poet wants a portrait

Entirely in words,

Written by a fellow poet

Who this poet has observed…

There is no need for flattery

Of that he’s had enough,

But he would be encouraged

And that poet has the stuff!

But he would be encouraged

And that poet has the stuff!

He wanted someone special

With a woman’s touch,

He chose one with a “gravatar”

That he loves much…

This poetess writes poetry

Intricate and very deep,

She says she’ll somehow get down to

His poet’s inner keep!

She says she’ll try to get into

His poet’s inner keep!

He could have asked others

But chose his favorite “red”,

Her sensitivity in verse

Makes her one step ahead,..

He recently had his heart changed

To love himself and why,

He wants her to encourage him

As he is through her eyes;

He wants her to describe him

As through her poet’s eyes!

His wife has agreed to this

As long as this woman knows

She cannot have more than the “write”

To his character expose…

She’s interested in reading

What the other has to say,

To see if she agrees with her

At least most of the way;

to see if she agrees with her

At least most of the way!

GOOD CHINESE DELIVERY!

GOOD CHINESE DELIVERY!

Beef and broccoli

,Beef and broccoli,

Yan’s is best–

Better than the rest!…

They don’t use M.S.G.

They don;t use M.S.G.,

That;s healthier…healthier!
