the farm boy

amidst the green field
behind grandpa’s old brick house
lies a broken fridge,
unmindful of time passing
until my mom calls me home.

A Pink Rose

My best friend and I
Ran barefoot through the garden
Stirring the petals
Her hair tied back in two braids
Her skirt trailed out behind her

We sat by the stream
With our feet in the water
Talking and laughing
Until a pink rose I plucked
And wove it into her dark braids

Improv On Pennies.

Acorn hats of wood
balanced on each fingertip
while giggles spill rich.
Felt tip markers draw the eyes
in this poor man's puppet show.

Video Games Played

Eyes glued to screen
Ignore homework of teacher 
Down load video game 
Some rich becomes a tycoon 
Cost younger generation

Fireflies Light the Path

Firelies flapping wings
light dark trails in fields at night
laterns bob and sway
like twinkling stars on high
while small hands reach to capture
~*~
In response to Nette's  "Splashes by Evening"
Miss you, Nette!

Childhood Dreams

She bends to gather Getting flowers of her youth Her mother stands near Smiling with a certain warmth This is what childhood dreams are

Curly Top

``

                                        Eyes sparkling lil' fawn,
                                        Curly locks adorable.
                                        World in rosy hands,
                                        Waits this dame till she does grow.
                                        Sun kissed words, colours would flow.

Batter Up

My first poem you see
about how sweet I can be.
See my pretty dress?
Man I want to make a mess.
How'll I do it, can you guess?

Easter egg hunt

through the tall grass

and under trees and shrubs

little hands grab

at hidden treasures

the Easter bunny was busy
