Voice

i just wanted
to listen to your voice
the voice i hadn’t heard
in a long time
a quick hello, good bye
just a moment of your time

Haiku for the Sea

Sea rushing in and around
my walk with the waves’
crashing roar pulling me near

Exceptionally Cute

I am exceptionally cute old lady
except when I back into your car
I am an exceptionally cute old lady
except when I don’t know where I am or who you are
I am an exceptionally cute old lady
except when parking in your space
It didn’t have your name on it nor was it written on your face
I am an exceptionally cute old lady
Oh you say you didn’t lose weight
Perhaps it is because you are standing and
Perhaps I have gotten deaf and shorter
Or it is all settling into one place.
I am an exceptionally cute old lady
And I know you think so too
So you really don’t mind
If I push in front of you.
I am an exceptionally cute old lady and
forgetful too.
But with all those little old lady things
I have a whim to do
At the end of the day
You’d want to be forgetful too

To my Brother Peter

I am stuffing all my pockets
with all the Hugs and Kisses
that you are sending my way
There are so many of them
I know I will never run out of
room and what I really want to say
is when my pockets are full
I will take all those Hugs and Kisses
I will take them in my arms and squeeze them
until they overflow unto the floor and then I will
spread them all around and make room for more.

Raining

It is raining
And the voice of the wind
is rattling and whistling at my window
Asking to be let in
to the thoughts that float
thorough my head
listening to the wind’s
lullabye as I drift off to sleep

Evening River Walk

Walking
along the
river path
in the late afternoon light
quiet thoughts on
the museum steps
watching as dusk
falls upon the city.

Busted

Jailbird Momma and DinoMan decided it was
time to go on the lam
So they both nabbed a cab
and headed South to Pyjama Land
And when they got there
Surprise surprise
The Immutable Law of the Sheriff Abba was
EVERYONE takes a nap in Pyjama Land
Busted flat
Not willing to take a nap
They both came back..
And that was that

( does not matter how you want to spell pyjama
you can still get busted and STILL have to take a nap.)

Monsters

Sometimes you have to
let monsters into your
life
They stir things up
They scream and shout
Then you can say,
“I am done. Now go away.”

then OPEN THE DOOR

and let them out.

I Am Thinking

I am thinking
But my thinking requires
A lot of space
So if you are going to be in the aisle
Where I am
understand
I am not intentionally
flying my thoughts
into your air space
Just take short shallow breaths
And we allllll will be just fine

and just don’t come in the store orĀ  the aisle
where I am next time.

Morning Walk

Morning
Hungry sparrows
Bread crumbs
White haired man
conducting a private
symphony of wings
