Time Flies

Time flies
when your having fun,
so the saying goes.

I must
be having a blast,
the days are flitting past, heaven knows.

It must
be grand to have such a time,
for it is flying fast

And before
I know it, all too soon
these days will be long past.

I can
barely take a breath, or give
my eye a bat

Too soon
I'll turn my head around and
wonder where it all is at.

Dinner Party

Did you wash the dishes yet?
I ask of you, dear pet.
When you are done with that set
Can you begin to set the dinette?
And then before you can forget
I need you to pipe out the rosettes.
This party will be a success I bet
Thanks to your hard work and sweat.

mummy fun

Three little mummies
Wrapped up tight
Learning about Egypt
Has been outta sight

Two little mummies
Having lots of fun
Using all the "wrapping"
Till there was none

One little mummy
Eyes open wide
See the pyramid?
I think I'll go inside

September 11

on this night
we remember the past
when we were shook
by the airplane's blast

we did not comprehend
nor do we still
just how much this hurts
and how our hearts can feel

it breaks the barrier
of individual strength
it takes us all joining
hands to overcome this breach

we look behind only to recollect
the horror, the pain, the feeling
to then look ahead and spur us on
to rise above the hate and work for healing

mint chocolate chip ice cream

minty fresh to the taste
fresh and cool, I'll not waste
any time to get me some
of the delicious frozen yum-yum
what can it be that I describe?
something nice on which to imbibe
one of my favorites is the theme
mint chocolate chip ice cream
