Quirky Couplets


How bothersome it is when flies
Buzz my coffee at sunrise!
 
If you have a fretful wife,
Be prepared for lots of strife!
 
Swat the spider, set it free
From its webbed captivity!
 
A deep hole—imagine that!
Will it fit inside my hat?
 
My bicycle is looping round and round the park;
Morning, noon, and afternoon—even in the dark!
 
Roses for the weekend, every weekday too;
Roses, darling, roses—yellow ones for you.

Froggy on a mat of blue,
May I hop along with you,
Seeking tasty flies and such?
I would like that very much!

tantalizing flies—
the scent of sugar syrup
seeping through the screen

ravenous turtle
lumbering through the garden—
terrified gnats flee

Old Turtle Woman
rummages in the garden
for succulent flies.

curious weaving—
two whales swimming side by side
in the tapestry
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
inevitable—
the birds that followed Jesus
pecking at my eyes
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
wary and alert
two flies meeting for breakfast
in the sugar bowl
