TO SEE THE KEYBOARD

He has to turn on lights,

typing his blogger insights…

Comments that bark

Can’t be done in dark,

Rooms without being bright!-

–Jonathan Caswell

 

SO LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE!

SO LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE!

Early morning and dusk,

Grey shadows, who’d trust…?

so  let your lights shine

We’ll see you fine,

Other drivers won’t be brusque!

It works in spiritual matters,

Lest one risk soul splatters…

Declare  Christ,

Be recognized

Cause you soul and others do matter.

Many Christians get by

Without looking straight in the eye…

Many play

At “faith” today,

Ognoring God’s harder commands!

Jeshua came to us  a child,

Jesus, helpless and mild….

Being God yet human

At his Father’s command,

Doesn’t that drive your heart wild????

BRIGHT LIGHTS–CONSTRUCTION!

BRIGHT LIGHTS–CONSTRUCTION!

Bright lights blast out of the dark:

“Construction here you’ll embark…”

Lights blinding

You while driving,

‘Tween barrels, cones in the dark!

Roads being sclarified,

Deep grooved on which to drive…

Special encycles

For motorcycles,

Rough roads increase chances to dive!

Certain parts get paved soon,

The roughest stretches assumed…

Lane/traffic changes

With equipment arranges,

Make driving sane nearly doomed.

Thank goodness for head lights on,

Won’t end up on somebody’s lawn…

Or in the river

Fighting a shivver,

Maybe we’ll stay here and spawn!

LATE EVENING HAIKU

LATE EVENING HAIKU

Poet howls away,

Seeing figures in the dark…

Walking toward him!

Luscious ladies lope

Longing eyes luxuriate…

Evening romance glows.

Supper not enough,

Large special sub* with the works…

Salad, meat and bread.

*(NOTE “sub” short for submarine sandwich.)

My relief comes now…

What am I gonna do?

🙂

PARKING LOT SWEEPING

PARKING LOT SWEEPING

Backpacks…angry hornets swarm

Outside in the dark…

An Elgin Sweeper rumbles to and fro;

Weed whackers fitted with

Rotary-sweeping parts

Make sand storms really flow!

How they can see with dim

Light overhead, six guys

Are kept busy a while…

Tomorrow morning when

Facilities comes in,

They’ll greet us with a satisfied smile.

WEDGE PLOW WONDERFUL

(www.nanosphoto.com )*

WEDGE PLOW WONDERFUL

A shadowy figure I saw

Last night filling me with awe…

A railroad wedge plow

In use now,

Until a permanent thaw.

‘Twas dark, but the lines

Of the railroad plow kind…

Gave joy

To this little boy,

Let’s keep their safety in mind.
