The Faithful Schmo

Oblivious to the diverticulitis attack

the dog let out a fart

being a schmo

he thought it was art

The man called for help

retching as he began to bend

food pouring out

when will it end

The trail is long

day is hot

the dog jumps out

looking at the rot

Deciding to be faithful

he quickly ran for help

the rangers found him

when the dog started to yelp

First aid administered

the man is fine

sitting in bar

relaxing with beer and wine

The Town Rumor

The juicy rumor spread

without a filter

the naughty behavior of some

exaggerated by the transmitter

The rumor took on a life

growing on its own

soon no one in the village

could be left alone

One fateful night

lightening struck from the aura

people took to the streets

screaming in horror

The town disappeared

truth difficult to handle

no one did anything

the rumor was the vandal

High in a moutain

a small child asked

how did a rumor destroy the town

did it wear a mask

The people had an epiphany

they were the cause

spreading a rumor

making many faux pas

The town was rebuilt

this time living in the light

admiring the beautiful color

letting rumors die in the night

Meeting with my Soul

It is a poignant meeting

with my soul

in a dogmatic world

where I have grown old

The time has come

to choose darkness or light

the choice is obvious

the future is bright

A life filled with adventure

so many lessons learned

time to move forward

long past concern

Eventually the veil lifts

loved ones will be be seen

senses will be greater

insight will be keen

Till that time

continuing to be kind

spreading love to others

opening the eyes of the blind

The clouds are open

it’s a beautiful day

sending love

on all airways

An Insidious Dalliance

Bees surrounding the feeder

a dalliance with sugar wine

drinking to excess

tastes so fine

Tumbling over

after an insidious alliance

hitting the ground hard

wings flapping in defiance

Ants come near

the bee struggles to fly

filled with sugar

a temporary high

In the nick of time

the bee rises in the air

falling into a flower

an answer to a prayer

The next day

the bee sees the feeder again

passing it by for a flower

preferring to live in zen

The Shiny Coin

The curvaceous eyes

look over the stream

a coin is shining

something out of a dream

So beautiful

light reflects many colors

a tempting prize

possession of wonders

Swooping down

now in possession

decorating the nest

an artful expression

Blending in with feathers

light reflecting off the coin

searching the stream for others

acquisitions to purloin

Search is futile

it’s one of a kind

the creature moves on

time to unwind

Night falls

time to rest

nestling next to the prize

content in the nest

Spaghetti highway

Lonely on a busy highway

a reminder of life right now

pretense that we are all together

having a fun powwow

So many different avenues

everyone taking a different route

passing each other

there is no way out

In the spaghetti junction

deciding to race

weaving in and out

hoping to escape

Others decide to join

having fun going great speeds

some jumping the barriers

others fighting for the lead

Is there an exit

no one knows for sure

it’s a little fun

creating a detour

The Rescue

Through the mist

came a guttural cry

having slid down the rocks

afraid it may die

Rain coming down

typical for this calendar day

causing slime to develop

slippery where ivy frays

Coming to rescue

is the animal’s mate

slowly hanging on

to a nature wall plate

Extending a paw

together they rise

reaching safety

that is verbalized

Disappearing in the mist

on the to the next adventure

there is a rainbow in the falls

celebrating victory in the venture

A Midsummer Adventure

The impressive sunset

called to the man

having a vacuous smile

he floated away from the land

Foolish things

this takes the cake

an adventure

may be a mistake

Floating farther

trying to touch the sun

to reach the horizon

before the day is done

Margarita was part of it

giving him false courage

kicking his feet

ignoring the current

The moon rose

his mission had failed

someone called the coast guard

rescue detailed

Waking up

the guard opened the jail

with a hangover

he had made bail

Now lying in a hammock

waking from a pleasant dream

traveling the world

with margaritas and ice cream

A Dream Life

Relaxing in the morning air

after the night’s rain

skittering my pole

quietness to maintain

My future

up in the air

how to make a living

and have some to spare

In this beautiful place

idioms filled my mind

what to tell others

whose life views are blind

Living off the land

exciting to me

coming from the dust

living carefree

Catching a fish

taking it back to the hut

cooking it on the fire

flavoring with walnuts

Living a simple life

happy as can be

no explanation needed

because I am free

The Shag Wig

Reaching into a surreal world

searching for the shag wig

the colorful bush holds many things

treasures within the twigs

First pulling out a screw

from a project long past

setting it aside

wondering how long it will last

Next came a bone

buried by the dog

throwing in the yard

oops, hit a frog

Finding my shag wig

an interesting site

the color washed out

now muddy with some white

Washing it out

placing it on my head

family is laughing

at how far it spreads

Walking away

it’s a great new look

suddenly a bird grabs it

an efficient crook

Back in the house

recovering from the ordeal

grateful for the ordinary

bald head is now ideal
