Poem 22 - An Insufficient Truth


picking up litter
keep the earth clean and healthy
basic skills undone
more R's than three are needed
garbage overflows
a disposable culture
wastes itself today
nature balances our greed
with or without us
an insufficient truth comes:
we cannot stay what we are


Poem 21 - Burns Bog


resplendent in mud
and rain, the mossy forest
breathes life for us all


Poem 20 - A Run for Two


On an early morning in April
Folks big and small go for a run
For some a race, for some a thrill

Daddy has done it since before she was one
This race around the park
Now the not-so-little girl wants in the fun

Up so early that its still dark
She dashes to get on her racing clothes
Ready and eating fast as a shark

Daddy is downstairs stretching to his toes
She waits patiently for her ride
Til Daddy is done and it's time to go

With other families they wait outside
Her first run with her Daddy
That she wants to brings me pride

Poem 19 - Pecking Order


morning sun rises
quietly peeping birds awake
for them day starts now
kept inside by sleeping humans
not rising with dawn
the ramp will not be lowered yet
at what cost delay?
one set of rumpled tail feathers
on a nearly denuded bum


Poem 18 - Two Down


Going about today's business
Eyeglasses achievement unlocked
Extra - new comics set aside
Knew that we wanted to read them


Chapter 18: Decentius Uncovers a Mystery - Part 4


I decided to take it as a compliment, it would help keep me from beating Antonius where he stood. I turned my attention to Nikolaos, not wanting to tempt myself further with Antonius and his insolence.

“And what did you see?” I asked.

Poem 17 - Pro-D Day


Today will be an adventure
It's two on one today
How to keep them busy? I'm unsure
Today will be an adventure
Now - creativity holds its sway
Later - whose meltdowns will come this day?
Today will be an adventure
It's two on one today


Poem 16 - Unwelcome Visitor


Two went upstairs for the night
Two more peeping, as they do,
From the window we see a fright
Someone has come to join the two
A thief approaches at twilight
Unwelcome raccoon, shoo!

From the window we see a fright
Someone has come to join the two
Peering through wire at the tasty bites
A scoundrel out to see what's new
A thief approaches at twilight
Unwelcome raccoon, shoo!

Peering through wire at the tasy bites
A scoundrel out to see what's new
We dash, banging toys to cause him fright
Over the fence, though still in view
A thief approaches at twilight

Poem 15 - Shenanigans


watching sister wash is boring,
time to escape
let's slide into the pool!


Poem 14 - Chickadee Chase


the chickadees go darting
all around our hedge
the young girl thinks they're playing
I think that is a stretch
youthful optimism winning
don't break it is my pledge

the young girl thinks they're playing
I think that is a stretch
a courtship game of chasing
to claim this spot of hedge
youthful optimism winning
don't break it is my pledge

a courtship game of chasing
to claim this spot of hedge
ends, and so the questioning
is left without an edge
youthful optimism winning
I didn't break my pledge
