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!

THE MAN WITH A CANE

THE MAN WITH A CANE

You’ve seen the man with a cane,

He isn’t treated the same,

People really try

To help the guy,

Their eagerness is plain.

He often refuses assistance,

Encountering some resistance…

He politely says

I’m stronger these days,

Tomorrow I might need assistance!

His cane he finds necessary,

Of balance he must be wary…

Tipping over

Aren’t beds of clover,

In fact it’s rather scary!

Lawsuits we know abound,

It’s better on safer ground…

Accept help

If not for oneself,

‘Cause God’s love for people has no bounds!

(PLUS—winter is coming!)
