Lottery Ticket Limerick
I know it is quite a huge long shot. However, I can win a big pot. I will join the dance. Give my dreams a chance. A buck per ticket is not a lot.

a green garden snake
slithers in the apple orchard 
mother crys

rooster puffed chest pride
caged birds lay hollow eggs
fox father red eyed
pies baked on the windowsill 
long shot gun in the shed

master plan
a master plan without a plot
feelings displayed, quickly dropped
not connected like domino dots
forming a thick and grievous clot
I said I do but you cannot
as inside it spoils and rots
it was always a long shot...

Silence To Collide
“Playing tennis without a net,”
  perhaps Robert Frost was right

Free Verse serves with no return,
  day volleys into night

One long shot into the darkness,
  an open end divide

Its message fades, an echo dim
  —with silence to collide

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2019)

Hoss Race
Long shot prospect
named “Reject Hoss”
bedecked with sweat.

He fell to last
‘till he passed gas
so fast, he flew!

He ran with ease.
At Jockey’s  prod,
he squeezed in front!

Forty to one,
odds he won was
pure fun for Hoss.
 



Inspired by Dr. Ram's Than- Bauk contest.
written 8/6/11...

what to do
Thinking What am i gonna do ,
i never knew,

Life Could ever be like this 
The Stability i do miss,

Gotta work my way back ,
To the top of the stack,

my life like a song,
Oh, where do i belong

don't know how to feel,
nothing seems real,

i gotta find who i am,
from where i came ,

It's a Long Shot ,
No Other Choice have i got.

cadence
once...
I wrote a song for you
lyrics sung of crescent moons
of stars on ceilings glowing, too
all of this I did for you

once...
I took a long shot chance
when you asked me for a dance
mirrors reflected a sideways glance
adding to the ambiance

once...
I had a vivid dream
that your heart could not foresee
nonexistent cadence rings
and rends it crimson at the seams

the march of the elegant
who does not want a better life
a better view
a better place
a better life


so play the lottery
go to the track
hey...there's always vegas baby

it's come down to the simple fact that everything is a long shot,
were underdogs fighting a system.

rules are in place to keep you and me down.

take a breath
inhale the sweet freshness of........oh never mind.

I won a free lottery ticket

more details later...........

Premium Member MISS JULY
MISS JULY Vitamin-D shot — Temperate, she’s not! She’s cool and she’s hot. Miss July, her gold complexion shirks shade. Possession of yacht — Lease was a long shot. Time reflects in knots — The noctilucent cloud waves, sunlight sprayed. Buds eternal thought: Untrimmed moon garden sought. At zenith, Vega spots Delphinus the dolphin — East heaven played. 8/2/2019 A Summer's Day Redo Poetry Contest Sponsor: Michelle Faulkner

Solve or Dissolve
That there are hard problems 
           is life's given;

don't crack your head trying 
           to solve all of them;

give your best long shot hoping 
           now and then

that though they may persist 
           or even worsen,

the ones you can't solve will
           eventually go

and solve themselves for you 
           on the morrow;

just how or why, no way 
           for you to know,

solve it or dissolve it, then 
           let your life flow.

Sweet Cola Lady
I once saw a video starring Lou Bega. He was singing his release titled "Sweet Like Cola". There, he danced with a pleasing plump brunette. This kind of woman is one I would like to get. Lou described her figure as a little "round". However, he said he loved every pound. Singing "stop your dieting 'cause you're so sexy". With his description, I would wholeheartedly agree. I am hoping for one long shot lucky break. This is one type of woman I would like to take.
