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-
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.*
