NEW BIRCH BEGINNINGS

NEW BIRCH BEGINNINGS

Only God can make a tree,

Been years since painting one for me…

A cancellation

Brought participation,

A class for the elderly!

My worry was shaking hands,

Picture painting has  certain demands…

Lucky for me

A birch tree,

And its wiggly trunk still stands!

The instructor put a cardinal in mine,

On a snow-cover branch so fine…

And “fly specks” too

Of snow that flew,

We pictured it at wintertime.

ALMOST THAT TIME!

ALMOST THAT TIME!

 

He’s had all night for posting,

The time’s almost gone and he’s roasting…

A few more lines

While he has the time,

To end his blog engrossing.

(i.e.:  Why didn’t I think of these earlier????)

 

ERIC’S BIRTHDAY

ERIC’S BIRTHDAY

 

Today Eric announced

It was his birthday pronounced…

The ladies’ attention

Of this last-minute mention,

Was that for which he smilingly pounced!

LAST-MINUTE CHARLIE

LAST-MINUTE CHARLIE

 

It’s once again the night before

And he’s got nearly nothing…

His wife is staging something big

To prove to him her loving.

At Christmas, ’twas different (?)

But now ’tis Valentines…

He’d better think of something fast

Or he’ll step on land mines.

He’ll get a card, some potted soil

And sugar-free chocolates to eat…

This weekend, they’ll visit the shelter,

A new cat would be sweet!

SUNDAY NIGHT AT OUR APARTMENT HOUSE

SUNDAY NIGHT AT  OUR APARTMENT HOUSE

Getting awful quiet now,

The folks are mostly in bed…

Some will get up with the sun

By eight P.M. the place is dead.

I’m doing last-minute laundry

Before the room closes down…

Wife’s wheeled walker is the laundry cart

On hallway carpet makes little sound.

One more load to cycle

In time for wash and dry,

After supper i am sweaty,

Is there any wonder why?
