On the Side of the Road
A car's pulled over on the road 
And hidden by the door,
A child lets out an urgent stream
Within the traffic's roar.

The parent gets him back inside,
Their motions chop-chop-chop, 
The passersby relieved to have
Avoided such a stop.

We've done this for our...Read More

We scootered to first grade today,
Passing buses and cars on the way.
With no sidewalks to ride on
My grandson relied on
My guidance so safe he would stay.

By the curb's where he needed to be
Which, of course, would have pacified me
But somehow...Read More

He has been attached to me since he was a baby
And I became his every day caregiver, loving him like a son
Not a grandson.

how fascinated I was, or how silly...Read More

Crop Dusting
I never knew this is what it was called until it
Happened to me
In public.
At first it was traumatic
As it came out bellowing like a banshee
And the aromatic bouquet wasn't flowering it 
Was a catastrophe.
Rotten egg smell is atomic!

Premium Member SUNDAY MORN
quiet Sunday morn,
up at my usual time —
it’s one hour early.
grandson and husband sleeping
i read and write in silence.

no hesitation breathing.

my heart palpitates
in caffeinated language.

I came across a giant leaf, that

" Pick me up gently and take me

a Dream Catcher that works
No other ones worked...
no matter where he kept them;
nightmares continued! :(

Couldn't forget Vietnam --
couldn't get over the war --
traumatized, angry! :(

Paul listened (or, let him talk);
that's all he needed! :)

At the Pediatrician's
Unexpected sickness;
Kids were home from school.
Took them to the doctor;
That’s the current rule.

Crayons in the waiting room;
Coloring and calm.
Cartoons in the background
Acting like a toddler balm.

Called into the office;
Temps and check the ears.
Waiting for the shoe to drop –
Hysteria and...Read More

We’d said goodbye, were at the door
When my favorite little boy
Came running with just one last hug,
The kind I most enjoy.

“You can’t leave, Nana. I won’t let you!”
Clinging to me, tight.
I’m sure he knew I couldn’t stay
But hoped with all...Read More

Dogs cute and fluffy!
Of all shapes and sizes,

Some dogs' hair is scruffy.
Comb them, please and make

Everyone was at a loss, having utilized various tools.
