Writing Prose


A poet who tried to write prose
Gave up when her fingertips froze.
She went back to rhyme,
Her words were sublime,
And thawed out her fingers and toes!

Temptation


I’m tempted to eat tons of sweets.
I dearly love sugary treats.
I think they taste yummy
When they hit my tummy—
Let’s hear it for lots of sweetmeats!
 
 
My temptress is coffee, you bet.
To caffeine I’m deeply in debt.
It keeps me awake,
So for caffeine’s sake,
I won’t kick my habit just yet.
 
 
Do not lead me into temptation!
I want to avoid the sensation
Of falling from grace
And losing my face—
From sinning I need a vacation!

Blue Monday: Pickup

Plywood art adorns a wall in Ajo, Arizona.
 


A pickup that’s painted sky blue
Can carry a small sort of zoo:
Let’s start with six hogs,
Ten cats, and twelve dogs—
I’m sure that’s a full load, aren’t you?

Writing Poetry


A poet who couldn’t not write
Wrote verses by day and by night.
When asked why she did,
She said, “Look here, kid,
It keeps me from croaking, all right?”
 
 
I write mostly tiny haiku.
I find it delightful, I do,
To write short and sweet,
Not unlike a tweet—
Here, let me create one for you!

Blue Monday: Whimsical Painting

A whimsical painting adorns a wall in the children’s section of the Prescott, Arizona Public Library.
 


This painting is sure to delight
The children who see it, all right.
With colorful hues
It’s full of good news—
There’s no darkness here, only light.

Limerick Break


Whose back does the earth rest upon?
An elephant, raven, or swan?
Perhaps it’s a gannet
That holds up the planet
That all of us humans live on!
 
 
A stack of good books by your bed
Is better than any old med.
So, here’s to your health,
Vim, vigor, and wealth—
Make sure that you get them all read!
 
 
A teacher too weary to teach
Decided to head for the beach.
“I need to unwind,
I hope you don’t mind—
I’m putting myself out of reach.”

Blackbird


This blackbird flies straight through the cloud.
By weather he will not be cowed.
In rain or in snow,
And when chill winds blow,
This blackbird remains quite unbowed.

Blue Monday: Deserted Campground

IMG_6091 (1)
A campground with no campers in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Southern California.
 


The campground’s deserted today;
Folks found somewhere else they could stay:
A room with a bed,
Not stars overhead,
And water in which they can play.

Smoking


If you think that smoking is fun,
Then I’ve got some news for you, hon.
The stuff in that pipe
Is worse than bad tripe,
And not worth it in the long run.

What Fun to Run


What fun to run from the cop,
Who keeps calling out to me, “Stop!”
My feet are so fleet
As I run down the street,
I soon see the officer drop.
