APPRECIATED

APPRECIATED

Morgan and Janet drew near

To say their poem was dear…

Appreciating

My participating

In memories Janet found dear.

Morgan is slowing down,

Of dog years she’s plied up a mound…

Moving slower

(We’re glad we know her)

Along familiar ground.

Janet shared memories

Of her dog, running with ease…

Of long ago

Letting me know

She appreciates poems like these.

HAWKEYE, JUST BARELY.

HAWKEYE, JUST BARELY.

 

A leaf fell down through the trees,

Under the riverbank he sees…

In a moment or two

Water current brings it through,

Riding the water, not breeze.

Picnics by riversides are restful,

And value of eyesight is testable…

Even though we’ve no need

To stay up to speed,

Having down time is good for the successful.

Watching leaves fall through trees is no crime,

As long as we get back on time…

We don’t need to capture fish

To enjoy a wholesome dish,

But to appreciate God’s Creation is prime.
