While My Wife Is In Japan....Again......[personal; Retirement - Poem by Bri Edwards
This beautiful day I sit on patio, .... which my wife may enclose.
I hope I'll enjoy the birds as much, and feel wind when it blows.
A little plane in the distance hums; my wife thinks they're crazy.
I've done most of day's exercises; now I'm being 'lazy'.
I've got with me Smart Women, a relationship novel
about some people who dominate and some who may grovel.
A while ago an 'insect' crawled by, the size of a dot of ink.
Then a blue and grey scrub jay came to yonder dish for a drink.
I photographed a second jay with my new binocular-digital camera.
Have you ever tried to find a word that rhymes with camera?
It's 'made in China' and I got it on clearance for about 8 bucks.
At that price, though camera ain't 'perfect', I really can't say it sucks.
Today I planted some sunflower seeds. They came as gift in the mail.
I also planted five cherry pits from gutter; I hope they do not fail.
Using computer I called Japan, to 'Mama's', and spoke to my wife.
Aside from food and sleep, my wife's most important to my life.
I miss her at times; it's as though life has a small crack,
But I don't miss her TOO much, ....because I know she will be back.
I watered potted plants today, those inside and those out.
It's nearly a new summer, which outside means a 'drought'.
I took care of two bags of waste.... from the bin in the bath room,
One with tissues for composting, the other for landfill doom.
My walk 'for my blood pressure' I took early, ... before it got too hot.
I left binoculars home this time; they can slow me down a lot.
At piano I sat for a bit, .... even 'worked' on 'new' tune.
I progressed a lot on day's 'chores' even before it was noon!
I resisted temptation to go buy myself some ice cream at the store,
But I ate cereal, veggies, cheese, fruit, fish, nuts, .....and MORE!
I left a voice message, by computer, for college friend named Bill,
took call from Connie and chatted.... till we'd had our fill.
I did some emailing, read some news, and checked weather too.
I tried sending Compeer monthly reports twice, and failed; I've no clue.
I reviewed bill for dental visit, and a pension statement from mail.
On phone I tried renewing 'triple A', but my attempt didn't sail.
The sky is finally darkening as I apply heat to my back.
Soon it's time for breathing exercises, med, toothpaste, and the sack.
I did not touch the vacuum, or do laundry, or any dishes, BUT
I DID wash two bedroom windows; .... it was one of my wishes.
