Mosquito

Standard

Sitting upon my throne
Doing a morning chore
When I looked up from by Digest
To see her hiding 
Behind the bathroom door.

Filled with my blood 
She stood
Blinded by the light
I grabbed a wad
Too neatly
Folded it just right!

I had just been thinking 
How nice it was 
The cold outside
Would finally do them in
And wouldn’t you know
Just as I thought that
I found one, within!

So I leaned forward
One crouching step 
Side shuffling my pants across the floor
And squashed that
Flying sucker
That will suck my blood 
No more!

Tomorrow, tomorrow (poetry the day after Memorial Day)

Standard

Good Morning
Tuesday the day after Memorial Day.
Today yet, I still celebrate their victories and mourn their loss. Thank you brave people.
Today, Tuesday 5/2918, I will still fight to save our nation.
I only have words now.
Oh ya! I have my vote, and I have my dollar that I can spend wisely.
Well, I guess I still have my ears to listen to reason, and my mind to practice common sense.
My heart still beats to be used on things of the heart.
Ha!
I guess those that gave up their lives …………..
are still counting on me today, tomorrow, tomorrow.

2018 in anticipation

Standard

I’m in no hurry to get to what is called paradise or heaven.

I find life now exciting, an adventure every day, a cause to exercise ‘will power’, creativeness and the joy of some indulgent, earned rewards.

I use plenty of memories I didn’t enjoy as an example to weight myself today, a wind to lean against, lessons to use.

And, I have a definite anger for those that cut me short. I will never let people do that to me again. Too many times!

 

…… If there was a thing that I could change as I was forming myself, it would be: (I didn’t intend to write this verse….. It just fell out that way ….. it happens!)

Promise to Myself:

To be stronger at capturing my dreams,

and surround myself with the people that are that way too.

They are not all ‘exactly’ as I.

We already have one of me.

By our nature, that would not do!

It’s the pursuit, the reaching, and the moving on.

I met a few and unconsciously migrated toward them.

Now I know why,

….. many are gone.

Wisdom takes a long time for some!

 ….. and I’m late, late, late.

….. so 2018 here I come

….. me being me,

 (arrrrr-dee-dee)

 

‘Special Bargain’ Poem

Standard

This poem would be a bargain,
if you paid double the price.
But, it’s a first time offering so,
I thought half would be nice!

To save you even more,
I’m writing half as much as I normally would.
And if you’ve read my other writings,
You’d know why that’s twice as good!

If you’re buying this poem today,

I’ll charge for two stanzas, but give you three,
And if you buy this all the way to the end,
the truth is, this poem’s on me!
