Premium Member Whose Normal
Whose normal – your normal or my normal I ask her.
She is shocked.
Believing we all have the same normal.

My children roller skated in the house, I tell her.
They had swings in the basement. We had pink goats.
My normal might not...Read More

Rustic Memoirs
My children are growing up fast,
I remember as if it were only yesterday that I was able to hold every one of them in my arms.
Holidays and birthdays have come and gone.
Years passing by slipping thru my finger tips.

Premium Member Wish list of the elderly
Born alone,
A lonely life,
Perhaps
Lonely at death
despite the family.
Cost of living is so high 
That you are loved
For what you can give
Not for what 
you might take.
My wish list
Does not include 
Items of physical 
pleasures, 
but such things
As love, laughter
and affection.

Santa's Money
I'm shopping for Santa.
He's not good with money.
He'll use up my credit
and laugh like it's funny.

He's broken my spirit
and says it's for good.
For the gift that keeps giving
he says that I should.

But it isn't my money
he comes for each year.

VICIOUS CYCLE
So, man evolved from an ape
Then took over Earth’s landscape.
Soon was head of the food chain
All others treated with distain
 
Man went on to rule the Earth
But soon became more than his worth
So was destroyed by floods and war
And forgot...Read More

I used to make fun of my dad’s age…saying with loving youthful vigor
“How come you’re getting shorter but your ears and nose are so much bigger?”

Oh, Dad would try to make a witty comeback…but usually it would bomb.

Boys and Girls
They’re one thing today and another tomorrow
There must be a book about life I could borrow
The pages within it, I’m hoping could teach
How I’ve got four children... but that’s one of each

Our Daisy and Sue play with little Bob’s toys

Premium Member Seeing the Future
The future  waits
  somewhere off on the sidelines.
Others came here
  that seems so long ago
  when the future was assured
but now...
  where is this world going?
Hold on to those dreams

Just Yesterday
Just yesterday
I was crying
Leaving home for the 1st grade
7th, 10th, 12th
Just yesterday
I threw that cap in the air
Bright eyed
Facing the world

Wow, who is that girl
My wife
The mother of my children
Just yesterday
Our babies were born
Responsibilities
Doing what had to be done

I Never Danced the Tango
“I Never Danced The Tango”


I have more than a few
Regrets in life…

I wish I’d loved my children…
Much more,
Much longer,
Much stronger.

I would wish to be
Much wiser,
Much gentler,
Much more compassionate.

I have worked on my failings
With some success, 
And forgave myself
For what I...Read More

Unneeded invites for Thanksgiving Day,
Drafts packed table orbs family buffet,
All arranged for this harmonious time,
Relations grace this exalted pastime.

Year after year, the newborns multiply,
Added tables, chairs, and appended rooms,
Through Heaven's wings, beloved souls now fly,
Shifts to calm talks, those gone...Read More

I was taught heaven was somewhere in the sky.
Where if a person was good down here on Earth, 
there was a place for them on high.

They hesitated at the door, I watched. 
I had to ask myself, why?
I could not help it.

A train without track....Read More

Winter Rhapsody
Winter rhapsody, the snowflakes  ascending slowly,.
Reaching the rooftops and houses.

Winter rhapsody, pedestrians in their winter clothes,
Warm  caps  snowsuits ,coats and boots,

Winter rhapsody, a horse drawn sleigh riding through the pioneer village,
You could hear the jingle bells.
