Merry Month of May...Day

The first of May,
flowers flutter and sway,
children laugh and play,
and dance around a pole today.

Happy May Day!

Springtime Swim

dip                                                                               
Pool Fun
dash
springtime splash

gulp
glug
noodle hug

dunks
jumps
covered in bumps

shiver
shake
sunshine bake

Happy Poem in Your Pocket Day!

A poem in my pocket
is trying to get out -
pushing against my seam,
it wants to shout:

"I'm here,
hear me rhyme,
free me from
this linty grime!"

I take out my poem
and share it with you.
Check your pocket,
maybe you have one too?

Spring Vibrancy

Rooted firmly in April,                                          
Cactus Blooms
spring explodes
with a cacophony of cacti color-
emblazoning
the desert canvas
with vibrancy and vitality.

Family Road Trip - Part Two

My family and I drove from Tucson to Colorado Springs and back for a family funeral. With 12+ hours in the car I had time to pen this poem...a continuation of a poem I wrote on March 4th. Our family road trip was without incident...until I got home.*

vroom-vroom
highway zoom
family road trip

splat-splat
bugs flat
family road trip

cone - cone
construction zone
family road trip

merge - merge
stop and surge
family road trip

thunk - thunk
potholes clunk
family road trip

slow - slow
traffic barely flows
family road trip

flash - flash
authority clash
family road trip

wrinkle - wrinkle
chip bags crinkle
family road trip

slurp - slurp
soda burp
family road trip

tunes - tunes
daddy croons
family road trip

*added stanza based on the events of the day AFTER our family road trip

smash - smash                                                       
car crash
crosstown road trip

Happy 19th Birthday, Colleen!
