Moxie Mule Ride

DocFile (1)

Riding on the mule

down the mountain way

with much moxie

taking my fear away

 

The path is narrow

my nerves are shot

the view is beautiful

the sun is hot

 

Passing a creek

the ride moves on

feeling much calmer

the mule begins to yawn

 

We rest on the bottom

meditating by the creek

my soul is nourished

looking up at the peak

 

Mounting the mule

on the path again

sky filled with clouds

rain to begin

 

Cool summer rain

refreshing to the soul

the ride is over

new stories to be told

The Moxie Alligator

alligator on golf course 2 may 5

 

The alligator sits on the bank

moxie all around

big beady eyes and open mouth

a warning to all who surround

 

He slips into the water

to cool off and rest this day

beady eyes open

silently waiting for prey

 

The morning sun

shining so bright

a duck comes close

the alligator moves to bite

 

All of the sudden

there is such a clatter

a group of geese land

causing the water to smatter

 

The duck swims away

the alligator loses his prey

there is much noise

as the alligator moves away

 

Back on the bank

enjoying the sun

watching the geese dreaming

while the duck continues to run
