Questionable Hair

Is it gray?                                                                                                
Me with my "Questionable Hair" (photo credit Nick Henry) 
Is it blond?
Is it white?
Is it grond?
So many questions
about my hair,
makes me wonder
why people care.

Football Sunday

catching, throwing
running, kicking, tackling
watching other 
people exercise is 
exhausting

Puppy, Puppy, Little Dog*

*To the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"

Puppy, puppy, little dog,
deeply sleeping like a log.
Sprawled upon your pillow flat,
like a sausage round and fat.
Puppy, puppy, little dog,
deeply sleeping like a log.

Contagious Limerick

Fred's head ached and his throat was red.
He was told to stay in bed.
Fred did his best
to calmly rest,
but Fred fled and strep throat spread.

Backyard Bob

This bobcat visited our backyard this week.
polka-dot coat
growly throat

bobbed-tail saunter
ears perked taunter

fluid fence walker
backyard stalker
