Old Age


Old age is a neat little trick
For people who never get sick.
But if you’re not well,
Old age can be hell—
As if you were hit by a brick.

Blue Monday: Global Friendship

IMG_9071
A mural in Stockton, California celebrates friendships around the world.
 


The hand of a friend may be brown,
Or maybe it’s white in this town.
Whatever the hue,
I know this is true:
A friend lifts you up when you’re down.

Addiction or Fiction?


The gal in the 10-gallon hat
Has gotten exceedingly fat.
Is her addiction
Only a fiction,
Or is it more serious than that?

Reading Fiction


The fiction you read every day
Can mess up your mind, so they say.
But can it be worse
Than ludicrous verse
That no one will read anyway?

Blue Monday: Hawk

Detail from a mosaic, Springville, California.
 


This hungry hawk’s looking for prey.
He’ll keep looking throughout the day.
When day turns to night,
He’ll give up his flight,
Along with his wildlife buffet.

Owl

Version 2
A great horned owl perches in a palo verde tree in the Sonoran Desert, Yuma County, Arizona.
 


One morning an owl in a tree
Appeared to be staring at me,
Or maybe he glared;
It’s not that I cared,
It’s just what owls do, don’t you see?

Blue Monday: Blue Blossoms

Blue blossoms ablaze in a pot
Can cheer both the German and Scot.
How clear and how bright
They glow day and night—
They’ll dazzle you, I kid you not!

Blue Monday: High School

A sign on a high school campus in Stockton, California.
 


If you are not learning in school,
Does that mean you’re simply a fool?
It might or might not,
Despite what you thought.
The truth is: There’s no steadfast rule.

No Clue


Just what can a blue lion do?
To tell you the truth, I’ve no clue.
I’ve never seen one,
Nor has my young son,
Who knows every beast in the zoo.

What If the Panda


What if the panda on Main Street
Suddenly gave up its heartbeat?
The beast would be dead,
And lay down its head,
And no longer rise to its feet.
