KINDNESS UNEXPECTED!

He came to the checkout line,

A couple ahead and behind…

Was his turn

And then learned

He’d surpassed his credit line!

The woman in back offered

To pay the difference erred…

A bagful returned

He accepted her terms,

Thank you’s and God Bless you’s aired!

She said was a Mother’s Day gift,

I told the cashier I’d wait to sip…

My soda at home

With the Missus alone,

But I’m gratefull her hand tipped!

TANKA YOU—MOTHER’S DAY

TANKA YOU–MOTHER’S DAY

Mother, the red head,

Satisfied Dad with cooking

Organized the home

As I moved further away,

She never left me alone.

Her “baby” lives now

Because she made it her task

To value my life

All obstacles were bulldozed,

Hugs were rare, but life precious!

Arranging music,

Teaching angels how to sing…

Following my Dad:

These are what we think she does

When not praising her Lord God.

Her preaching licence

Set aside when she married

Two in ministry

He did the sermonizing,

She was his right and left hand.

I found a spray can

Of contraceptive bedside

Lovers late in life

Shock and awe at my parents,

Mom and Dad deserved some fun!
