Namesake

My grandfather's name
Was given to me at birth
To honor the man
That my father never knew
Having died in World War Two

Outsmarted

My grandson just loves to make noise
The louder the better his toys
His batteries I hide
The noise still resides
Turns out that I hid his decoys

Harvest Perch

Man in the moon is
Fishing for seasonal fish
From the harvest perch

(My grandson who lives with me said that he saw a man fish in Raul's "Reflections" picture.)

A Fan Letter

My little grandson Noah,
You're growing up so fast
Seems yesterday you
Were a tiny babe
Time is rushing past.

Now you're almost one year old!
You're such a little man
With brains, looks, personality
And I'm your biggest fan.

A history of mysterys

You sleep with your eyes open
Your memories showing
Your mind is racing
Your imagination roaming

Leave your reality
And you will soon find
That you'll never have answers
Or understand mankind

He Doesn't Eat Potatoes

He's the cat's meow, 
just turned five,
has a stubborn streak 
half a mile wide.

At Kim's diner, 
he held one of his fries 
in front of his face.

"Do they put potatoes 
in these?" he asked. 
"I think McDonald's does that."

Following the Dinosaur Trail

babysitting Ricky
he shows me books on T-Rex. . .
ancient history

years later. . . watching
Jurassic Park on TV. . . 
my two kids and I

games played on a screen
my grandson plays the hunter. . . 
I’m the dinosaur

BLANKET COMFORT

BLANKET COMFORT

so tenderly, he takes the blanket
covered with red dots and grandma love
tucked all around his eight year old frame

my tooth pain in remission while i sleep
he places the soft and tender blanket
over my legs, sharing the warmth

Limerick: Once the Great Grandson of Queen Victoria

Limerick: Once the Great Grandson of Queen Victoria

Once the great grandson* of Victoria
Heir to the throne of tsarist Russia
Saved by “Doc” Rasputin
Killed by Lenin-Stalin
Lo! Heir to Queen Vic’s haemophilia!

Boots

Red-headed, brown sugar drops on nose
Taller, taller, taller he grows
Big brown eyes, braces on teeth
Wax in ears, boots on his feet


(Observing my grandson sitting in the ENT office to be told that he has some 
hearing loss from constant allergy, infections, and middle ear infections.)

Hugs

Teenage Girls clad in the latest fashions,
Do it whenever they meet,
Grown men aren't afraid to show some passion,
When their team's comeback is complete,
They can say hello, they can say goodbye,
And anything inbetween,
If you open your arms and crack a smile,
There is nothing that a hug cannot mean.

It's All About The Ring Tone



I'm afraid of my cell phone I confess
"Someone" changed the ring tone to cause me stress
While I took a  nap
He switched it to rap
Now when my phone rings I'm really a mess



"Someone" being my grandson Jordan..
 I finally got him to change it back...lol

Grandma Rocking

Needed at least one hug today
Validation needed in something you might say
God help my grandson be okay
Reach down and heal his broken spirit if you may

Agony being felt by me
Longing to hold him on my knee
But the time is gone it can no longer be
How can I help him recover to be able to see

Welcome Aaron

Just want to shout it from the roof top
The special news that came our way
A new grandson arrived yesterday
His name is Aaron Alexander
Our second grandson has come
And now that today is done
I want to say the heart is glad
Our first son has now become dad.
We are very blessed 
to have this new bundle of joy.

My old Gran

When you hit life’s low
in deep confusion
of which it seemed no end,
I recall you thanking God
for one’s family also I
your grandson a very good friend.
Whilst your body racked with pain
torment you could not hide
an instance of loving charms,
when from your heart
a welcome sincere
within ever open arms.

Florida Mosquitoes

Florida Mosquitoes 

A boy stayed with his grandma one summer.
Mosquitoes loved him; it was a bummer!
They liked to drink his blood.
It never was a dud.
They lined up to slurp him for dinner.

Co-written by Dane Ann Smith-Johnsen and her 6-year-old grandson who said that the mosquitoes lined up to 
eat him.

Computer Problems

I had a senior moment
Computer I was on
I was on the Face Book
Then the bloody page was gone

My Grandson came to my rescue
Cause me I had no clue
He sat down and worked it out
Me, I did not know what to do

Now computer is back on form
I am so pleased, am I
If it happens once again
I will call this clever guy

Composure

When we touch
I feel something happen
When we breathe
All the world is humbled
Stay with me
As my heart surrenders
Comfort me
As I fall apart

When we flee
Darkness brings us release
All you need
You can find it in me
Stay with me
As my heart surrenders
Comfort me
As I fall apart

Written by Janetta's Grandson Mac.

Safe In My Arms





On quiet rivers may you  ride,
Knowing  I'll be there at your side.

Dream your dreams oh so sweet,
For there my love were sure to meet

Wake with smiles for each new day,
Your morning prayers I'll help you say.

Lull-a-bye my little one.
Sleep now, this precious day is done.

Reflections of Royalty

Time changes all things 
Subtracts and adds to life 
The most one can see is 
Five generations  at a time. 
Strange how history fades 
with each passing day. 
Memories become
 harder to hold onto. 
We forget who begot who 
Royalty and purple cloaks 
Is there a prince in me? 
Is that a king I see? 
Reflecting on what I used to be.

Quiet Little Child

Quiet Little child, so at peace

you are as you sleep on,

such dreams you must

be having.


Watching you lying

there without a care

in the world.


Waiting until you

awake, so I can

see your beautiful smile

that you always give to me

and to tell you how much

I love you.


written 4-17-11

For my grandson Brandon
