Dead Men Don't....

His face was still and lifeless
Like I've never seen it before
The form resembled my loved one indeed
But I really was quite unsure

Turning Over A New Leaf

I watched a leaf falling so gracefully,
It seemed as weightless as it could be.
It caught a light breeze, gently touched down,
And swiftly began inching across the ground.

A Summer's Farewell

Think of me as your face is brushed
By the gentle ocean breeze,
And as it softly sweeps through palms
And rustles all the leaves;

Connecting With Corey

How I long to remove the rage
That’s etched upon his boyish brow
Unclench the fists so tight and tense
And smooth the lips shaped in a scowl

The Man In The Moon Has The Mumps

The oddest thing has happened,
And I hardly know what to say,
The man in the moon has come down with the mumps
And he cannot come out today.

Bob Cat

Lily had a funny cat
His name was Bob
And he was fat.


Goodbye to all
Original thought
I shall not think again
Computers, machines

What Mature Women Understand...

I feel the heat between us-
Is it passion? raw desire?
With all the pop and sizzle
Of an orangey-blue wood fire?

God's Love For Me

I cannot know the breadth of your love
With no defined borders for me to see
My arms can’t expand enough to display
Just how much you truly love me.

Mrs. Talley's Rats

The rats were thick
Back in the alley,
Behind the home
Of Mrs. Talley.
