Sleeping

I was watching myself

sleeping in my sleep
thinking thoughts so deep
in the quiet waters surrounding
the island of my time.

The time I take to sit
and think what it
is that I want to do
in the quiet of my mind

I want to make the best of
what it is
what is before my time

I Was Here

I was here
You were not
Knocked on your doors
They were locked
I walked
Away

We will have to
meet another day

Expiration Date

I found your expiration date
it is written on the bottom
of your foot
You can’t see it because
it is written in invisible ink
And besides I am the only
one who knows where to look

Imagination and Was and Is

Imagine being curious about
Was and Is
A child is always is because they use their imagination
bringing was into the is
An adult never is, always was and could have been

The Water is Me

I am a swimmer
The water is me
I live by the beach
down by the sea
I swim in the pool, in lakes
and the sea
I am a swimmer
The water is me

Oh, What a Lovely Surprise!

Oh, what I lovely surprise
I seem to recall having seen
where they were way up there before
Those eyebrows were way up there
on someone I knew
Last time they were surprisingly brown

And now they are even more surprisingly

blue

You Know Whats

You Know Whats
are the Things that you pull
over your feet, over your legs and past your knees
They cover your butt

You can’t wear only them in Public

There would be quite a scene
BUT it is important when traveling
to have them to wash you would need a washing machine.

I guess you could wash them in a sink
Or wear them double
Turned inside out
Hmm but that MIGHT stink

You Know Whats are important where ever you go

I don’t have to tell you what they are

For I am sure you already know

Forgetfulness

Did you forget what I was saying
or was it just me
I was looking for something
It is hard to remember what
And not remembering makes it
so hard to see
something that I thought I was looking for
But I was sure it was you that doing the forgetting
Not me

The Boy and His Leaves

Once there was a little boy
who the leaves loved to chase
they swirled around his feet and legs
and danced up in his face
One day he said, ” Hey you leaves, I like you better
when you are waving and smiling from the trees
Not when you are on the ground all tangled up in me!
He quickly raced down the street all the leaves following in mad
pursuit  the boy they loved to chase
Taking a left at the corner and on to the sea
Stopping at the water’s edge the boy turned and said,
“Now see here you leaves.
“Go find another boy to chase. Stop bothering me!
And turning his head  he marched off instead of waiting to see what the leaves would do.
It was starting to get dark and his mother might worry for he was
still a little boy too
The leaves turned red in shame.
They loved this little boy. It was all in fun, just a game.
So quietly, softly, gently dipping in air they carried the little boy home
Covering him up as he slept so he would not  be alone.

The little boy and his leaves

 

This is for Ithamar who thinks the leaves are chasing him

In the Car

Why do people pick their nose in the car
Is it something they can do while not traveling very far
With their finger up their nose
it is not on the phone
they are usually alone

In the car
