MORE THAN SATISFACTORY

MORE THAN SATISFACTORY

A special Valentines Day,

More snow is coming to play…

On hills and dales

That high wind avails,

Whilst we stay inside and sashay!

We have our Saturday dinner,

My wife’s fancy dress a winner…

A Polish feast

For greatest to least,

Ah, community love doth glimmer!

After our repast nightcap,

We ambled home for a nap…

My love and me

Snore peacefully,

In recliners and my C-PAP!

She got a card out for me,

Am I too lazy?,,,

Neither could shop

(Will the snow ever stop!),

Our love is for eternity.

ROOF CLEANING DETAIL

ROOF CLEANING DETAIL

One nearly slipped off the roof,

I do declare forsooth…

They need safety belts

To avoid big welts,

I’d say this is the proof!

WARMED WEATHER

WARMED WEATHER

Our Saturday boiled dinner

Was a social winner…

It sounded crass

But biogas,

Warmed up this spot of winter.

LITTLE DOG DRIPPING

LITTLE DOG DRIPPING

Fashionable sweater athwart,

A miniature stalwart…

Dripping snow melt

Loving hands felt,

While he was leaning to port.

Coming in from outside,

Braving a snowfall tide…

Leaving a mark

Out where cars park

And quickly returning inside!

COMES WITH THE TERRITORY

COMES WITH THE TERRITORY

(Thankfully–not this time!)

Blizzard conditions

Contribute to rising suspicions…

Of power loss,

Such is the cost

Of New England locations!

PALM TREES, ANYONE?

PALM TREES, ANYONE?

This Christmas promises green,

Little snow left to be seen…

Just heavy rains

To plug street drains,

Maybe Santa will get muddy jeans?

SWEET SCENE

SWEET SCENE

Confectioner’s sugary frost,

Trees and bushes glossed…

Roads are wet–

No freezing yet–

A weather change these delights cost.

THE DARKENED COMMUNITY ROOM

THE DARKENED COMMUNITY ROOM

Posting at the computer screen,

Hear whispers of slippers unseen…

He would crane his neck

But then, what the heck,

Not everyone for talking is keen.

An elder sits by the tree

Lit up so Christmasy…

To read his mail

Until daylight fails,

With a comment or two for me.

In the darkness, colored lights glow,

An allusion of God’s Gift, we know…

So lights twinkle through

Spruce branches (blue),

Reminding of memories in tow!

Peacefulness in here selected,

And soon my own mail’s collected…

Of places to post,

He likes this the most,

Where rhyme and down time are perfected.

HAVING NO FEAR–OR FUN

HAVING NO FEAR–OR FUN

Being inside all the while,

I gaze out at weather and smile…

Transitional time

To retrain the mind

For winter driving as dialed.

But now I may start to worry

As someone else drives in a hurry…

Out of my control

To politely extol,

And trust those driving the surrey!

HOLIDAY HAIKU

HOLIDAY HAIKU

Temperature jumps,

“Cold season” drips and sneezes…

Economic boosts!

Thanksgiving over,

Turkey soup with lots of fat…

Should have known better!

Black Friday turned week,

Jingle makers sing their songs…

Santa’s tandom sleigh!

Sun shines on our tree,

Ads run for all charities…

God’s Gift…is coming!
