gentle good morning
a soft breeze kisses my cheek..
momma bird has worm
*One of my children's poems
Happy Momma Bird Day..
The little ones will feast!
Once upon a time I heard a rhyme
And this story was so sublime
I wish it was mine...
Abigail went to sleep every night
She'd grow a tail that felt just right
It wasn't scary, too long, or hairy
It was perfect for a princess fairy
This tail was pink with polka-dots
She'd use it to climb & swing a lot
The birds loved her up in the trees
They said Abby tell a story please
Oh, her stories were so much fun
The birds laughed till setting sun
Abby loved butterflies and flowers
In a tree she could paint for hours
And take pictures for photo books
Pics so good you had to twice look
She loved the trees and her pink tail
This day was really going quite well
Then Abby always climbs down...
As the happy birds gather around
A new bird saw this and asked why
Isn't it better to live up in the sky
That's her mother the others said
She loves Abby, tucks her in bed
Abby loves mom in a special way
Together they're magic I must say
Mommy will kiss Abby goodnight
And every morning things are right
You'll see, tomorrow it will be well
Abby will grow her pink spotted tail
Eat pineapple pizza and ice cream
Run to the yard to play in the green
And swing in the trees under the sun
Then be with mom as the day's done
*One of my children's poems
(Dedicated to Folake)
Your eyes, woman
are like twilight rainbow
amorously bearing aloft passions of mine
toward androcytic ecstacy.
They tell of endless lights.
Night skies clarion the warmth of you
keep me balled-up till
i am tilted to your adorned essence.
May I call up words to adore you,
agglomerate them into a panoply of worshippers
unsandalled before you
like Moses at the burning bush.
And now you seem to fall asleep
but you tell me it's the heavy night
bidding toward a sunny dawn
wherein our love is lighted.
Slowly I let you fall asleep
impatient with the long night
waiting to gaze once more
into the eyes of my lovely love.
Then a lip is placed on yours
and you rouse up wide-eyed
smiling at my romantic move.
We enjoyed the night, cruising on.
The queen of birds Sari dear lived in the mango tree
I asked her to come down and take a saree from me
She asked wide-eyed the price of it
I said,”Sari, you’re a cute tweet”
She made faces, chirruped short, and flew to the next tree.
A saree is a South Asian female garment that consists of a drape varying from five to nine yards in length and two to four feet in breadth that is typically wrapped around the waist, with one end draped over the shoulder, baring the midriff.
Sari came down and sat on the bay window
‘Dad’, she said,’ you must chain the devil Frido’
“He is a gawky brute
Just now he ate up a coot
He needs your boot and a slap on his credo”.
Sari tweeted my wife” O mom, don’t pinch my behind”
My wife re-tweeted,” Sari, You are not of this kind”.
“Sorry to say you have no proper bum
So, Sari, how can I be a pinch bum?”
Sari re-re-tweeted, “Mom, a lie, my bum is twined.”
Sari came one day with his creaky husband Suk
“Dad, teach Suk a lesson, he must know how to cook"
"Sari, my darling, you’re a sweet fraud
Don’t crook Suk’s head with a teaching rod
Better teach him how to fly by hook or by crook"
Sari, my daughter, in mid September, gave birth to a girl
She was a ball of furry delight, eyes were pacific pearl
I said, "Sari ,you are now a mother
So you must not be antsy like other
Sari hugged her child,said”dad, no worry, she will be a whirl"
Mom looked out the window
at the bright sun. From where she sat
on her front porch couch,
the world outside
the kind of cold that
breaks wood and snaps utility wires. Suddenly a bird
she supposed from the tree that towered over the front of the house,
on the outside window sill.
She caught eyes with the little, black thing and asked it,
"Why am I so lonely?"
But the bird
flew away after only a few seconds,
certainly not enough time to
Once there was a nest
high in a tree
where no one could even reach it
In that tree was a little bird
who knew everything
that his mom said to do
because his mom said it in a way
that he could hear in his egg
For that, he giggled
when he hatched.
He was not able to fly
but he was able to walk
He walked to his mom
and they lived happily ever after
and never went anywhere without each other.
