Spring?

The eighties are back

But I wonder for how long?

Has spring really sprung?

Soul Mate

A host of decades have passed
Since that long train ride
From a Mississippi air base
To learn of a great divide

Five years passed, I drifted
Waiting for my heart to mend
It seemed I’d not recover
The pain would never end

Time heals all wounds
States a very old adage
Those words rang true
And I turned the page

I found my soul mate
The light of my life
Kind, gentle, and true
She is my wife

 

My Motorcycle

My old Knucklehead
A blue Harley- Davidson
‘Twas my trusty scoot

Vices

Coffee has been a mainstay
It got me out of bed
A cup first thing each morning
Certainly got out the lead

Then one morn it didn’t set well
The fact is it made me ill
So I stopped it cold turkey
With conviction and self will

The loss of it bothered me
And I often fell asleep
So I started a new plan
One full cup each Sunday week

 

April Showers

I woke to thunder
At four o’clock this AM
More cold rain today

The Old Man From The Sea

He was a skinny old fellow
The old man from the sea
Who plied the briny Coos River
Past our cottage at Catching Lea

Folks said he’d mastered ships
Square-Riggers on the high sea
But now he master a rowboat
Past our cottage at Catching Lea

Only I seemed to notice him
The bent man he’d come to be
Who always stood while rowing
Past our cottage at Catching Lea

At The Rally

Little Biker

To a bike rally
Went cyclists Barb and me
Plus one that was wee

Fitting In

Mr. Black’s a dog
Who has learned that he can grin
And thinks he’s people

Silence

What shape is silence
Is it flat or is it round
I think it is both

The Old Man From The Sea

He was a skinny old fellow
The old man from the sea
Who plied the briny Coos River
Past our cottage at Catching Lea

Folks said he’d mastered ships
Square-Riggers on the high sea
But now he master a rowboat
Past our cottage at Catching Lea

Only I seemed to notice him
The bent man he’d come to be
Who always stood while rowing
Past our cottage at Catching Lea
