Sometimes there are things
and a need to get them out

But I just give you the finger
tell you to hit the road

You don't want to listen
I don't want to be ignored

All of this is in my mind
you can't handle cruel...little baby

So the dance goes on, and you smile
and I walk around what the fuck

made a promise, will keep it

Scales on my body
white wings that lift

dark thoughts
flying to the light

struggle with my daily self
laughing, laughing, laughing

from the scrapes of yesterday
stands raggety man in a new coat

thank you all for everything
I'll leave the coat in the hall

It sometimes happens
and it sometimes dosen't

twinkle, twinkle, who are you
a bit of this and a bit of that

Torn up pieces of possibility
stuck together by others thought

Oh God I wish it was true
that all of us didn't crush the others

but there is the truth before us
hello little star, may you twinkle

It was the place for chaos
she used it well

No defenses and no gate
Built just a screen door

It was just enough to cover
and protected my tower in the rebuilding

it is not always the big things
it can be the sun warming your hands

She called my name
pretended I didn't hear

she came closer and spoke again
pretended to be startled

But it wasn't my name or me she spoke too
my ashes shifted in the wind

even knowing all of this
pretended that it was me

the wind carried me about
leaving me to be one with the earth

She got on with life
and someone else

Why are our hands so empty
when there is so much to grab

Live off the alley and only ten
Why did they have to take my coat

brought a bucket of leaves to help
and laid them on the bed to be turned under

neighbor made me a poncho out of an old blanket
late at night caught a mess of perch in payment

know where the crayfish lay
hungry is the cry, people are the miracle

why are our hands so empty?

I have a friend
a mixed up plum tree

gift from my children
they know my love of trees

Fall sneaked into the valley
and some how that plum woke to Spring

White blossoms and promise
went out and tried to explain

Put mulch around the base and...
eager to please, will be befuddled

sounds so much like us

Stepped up to the plate
no one to pitch and nothing to eat

rolled over to get up
nope, wrong side of the bed

tried to sit down and ease my pain
sign said standing room only

Time took my hand and led me
only to let go and laugh and check the watch

can't take away the fun

Fall is there to ease you
reuniting with joint pain

It is there to beat the band
the band is there to beat you

the pain can be awful
and Fall is wonderful

mellow notes and gentled heat
nail two inches below the shoulder

They pulled a knife and sank it
an inch to the right of the nail

Summer sounds good

The day warmed
things were funny

Haven't fallen down yet
bumped my head only once

Winter gardens are planted
I am one with my garden hose

Dogs think of me as the snack man
in lieu of a snack I am the salt lick

Now about those winning numbers....

Each moment of life is a poem
or a bit of prose or maybe an epic

In each moment there is a scrap
in each scrap there is a story

Some scraps can be cleaned up with a sponge
some require sandbags to contain them

Sometimes when you squeeze out the sponge
having sandbags is a blessing

Six hours, children, grandchildren, noise
blessed noise, holy, holy, holy noise

Will take more than sandbags this time

Yeah I know my belly is as round as a propane tank
but that's not why my pants sag

kept a nickel in my pocket that tinked when it hit my key
so it was left step and nothing, right step...tink

lost that nickel this morning and still hear that tink
my right knee is starting to bother me

Went to my in house "library" to do some reading
discovered a magnet I lost about the same time as the nickel

it was attracted to my stainless knee cap
it also was having an affair with my key

Lust will will always get your pants to sag


LOL I love it!

End of December the sun is out
Five days ago it was rain, and rain

Sittin' on the patio, suckin' rays
Dry suckin' up the rain

Sun and children coming together
Just how warm can a body be?

Gentle touch of a grandchild
Grandpa turned to pudding

How good can it get?


Awwwwwww...

She vanished from my phone book
so many others have done the same

There were two others after her
She was my mother

new people on stickum labels
cover the dead

Those that moved and handed out new numbers
and those that didn't; they couldn't remember

Raggety book full of raggety people


So true. Mine is quite raggety, now. I learned to use a pencil for the entries, and now for my kids, the eraser has made holes on the paper. It is sad to see email addresses and phone numbers for them, after they've left. Can't bear to delete those last emails they forwarded to me.

Every day starts with the small ..I can
Your foot slips into your shoe
You pause before you try the next one

Remember that you haven't put on your pants
have to start over
and the joy of life makes you laugh

Now if I can just get to the toilet on time
Joy of life makes you laugh again
sounds like you have to pay off a loan

Made it but the door is still open
the grand kids aren't here are they?
No that was last week...makes you laugh

Joy is where you find it...even in the pain


AMEN!

Harvested some garlic
man does it smell good

just to make a little more room for the tomatoes

Washed off the dirt
and tied them with a string

hung them up to dry

It is the simple things


Dang, you're good! I swear I smelled garlic there just for a fraction of a second!

Ahhh, the quiet anger - it lets us know something still works! Something like adrenalin. If adrenalin works, so does the good stuff-- estrogen and testosterone... surely... SURELY! Razz

Then, sometimes we are there to pick up the crushed, brush them off and help them stand again, you know. It's also what we all do... sometime, someplace.
