STRANGER THINGS…

Stranger outcomes happen,

When opportunity’s tapping,

Wanting in

And you begin

Writing ideas you’re trapping!

He’s written ’bout Christ and trains–

Weather seems worth one’s pains….

Fashion poems are new

As something to do,

And the challenge takes working brains!

I’d say it is channeling energy,

Most of which has left me….

Shapes and sizes

And stylish surmises,

Still need a bard’s entrée.

“An eye for the women.” one said,

Focusing on their clothes instead..

“Clothes make the man”

And women, and can

Leave little more to be said!

YET–a poet describes,

Details that emanate vibes…

Along a track

That likes feedback,

Both positive and wise!

GLITCH IN THE GARDEN

GLITCH IN THE GARDEN

They worked upon

The irrigation system this week…

At one point we had a fountain

And now a running creek—

It’s watering near the front door,

The system hit a snag…

Constantly watered soil is mired

And that section is a quag!

NEWS FLASH, on Saturday,

Eric came hurriedly in….

To shut off water

Til Monday fixing begins.—

No reason to waste water,

The Mumford has enough…

They may need to call in professionals…

For them, the bill will be rough!

HIP SHOOTER!

HIP SHOOTER!

Any poet who shoots his lip,

Be careful aiming from the hip…

Avoid certain barriers

To not make “err-ee-ors”(errors)

Or the chosen market may slip!

RAIN ON THE PANE BUT NOT SO PLAIN…?

RAIN ON THE PANE–BUT NOT SO PLAIN-?

On my window pain every morning,

“Evidence” that it’s been storming…

Although the pavement’s dry

The driveway drains nearby,

Did it come without warning?

No, it is a scheduled thing,

Lawn irrigation runs from late Spring…

The spray can be a pain

If it hits your window pane,

Open windows can be very messy things!

LITTLE ENGLISH VS. LITTLE POLISH LANGUAGE

LITTLE ENGLISH VS. LITTLE POLISH LANGUAGE!

She said she wanted for  “Office”,

I thought she was asking for keys…

She wanted an elevator card

For the other office building (goodness me!)/

It took another cleaner and their Super,

To figure out her request…

As it turned out I couldn’t help

But she got one from one of the rest.

My cross-culture training this evening

Is to admit that there are times….

When one needs extra help in translation

Before one can describe it in rhymes!

COLORED LIGHTS ON THE MOSQUE!

COLORED LIGHTS ON THE MOSQUE!

Driving home from work I see

Colored lights on a parapet….

Ramadan is here with crowds at the local mosque,

Given over to sharing it.

Colored lights softly flash,

Hurried worshipers dash….

Parking spaces

Are premium places

But don’t park on thed neighbor’s grass!!!!!
