Hunting for sport
  It is hard to be a little fox
They have many natural enemies in the forest
Where they live in the hole of an uprooted tree
They have no umbrella for when it rains
No sofa and a TV,...Read More

My Day
"What did I do today,
For it has vanished I’m afraid

Important moments I had planned
But I’m holding nothing tangible in my hand

There was hope and excitement this morning, 
And my afternoon was absolutely not boring 

But as evening falls,
I have trouble...Read More

when I was a girl of nine
created it out of the banks 
of my favorite things

character traits needed on all planets
powered by enthusiasm and love
I began hovering over the backyard at age...Read More

Salt Fork Lake

The fish are jumping
and the moon is high
as we drift along
under a Summer sky.
Bullfrogs croaking
while fireflies blink
as I sit on this lake
and just dream and think. 
No cell phones, no TV.
Just God, nature and me....Read More

-A World We Live In-
Like a wingless bird flying in the dark sky
Like a morbid chime you can’t hear
Like happy evil demons crawling into you
Like The Dark Sun that shines the horror

Premium Member Heather's House
It was my first time 
At Heather’s house
He grunts at her
I stand in the hallway
Out of his sight 
Bombs and soldiers on TV
Is he always like that?
He’s at war every day 
He doesn’t mean to hurt me
I take care of...Read More

Premium Member A Sloth on my Stay-Cation
I am on a little stay-cation.
No plans. None.
Melting into my chair, my eyes close.
This is a napping house.
We keep it dark for the TV advantage.
It is easy to not know if it is day or night with our black-out curtains.

Premium Member DISHING IT

I watch talented chefs on tv
And how they make it look so easy
Massive walk-in refrigerators
Recipes for bold innovators
Freshest produce exotic and rare
Excessive abundance they do dare
Combining components with finesse
Topping lush dishes with watercress

sleepless in Cascais
Sleepless in Cascais
 It was a strange night
Couldn’t sleep thoughts and images
Kept churning around and I was
Horrifyingly awake.
This is pointless, got up and drank
Several glasses of water, my brain 
Was talking to me and I had no answer.
To distract...Read More

Premium Member Numbers Make Me Anxious
Numbers make me anxious.
I see them floating on signs 
As I travel the interstate.
They catch my eye sometimes on a TV set.
Five. Nine. Forty-six. Twenty-seven hundred and twelve.

They are on clocks. Parading around like they own places.
8:34 a voice says,...Read More

Premium Member Ex Worker Bee
I used to be a worker bee,
And as far as I could ever see,
Would never have the sunshine time,
To sing a song, to pen a rhyme.

I longed so for a day I would be free,
To paint a picture, to watch...Read More

Correcting poem
Writing new ones is over
Time for TV.

Not uplifting

The elected dictator
Triumphant boasts.

So stupid

Premium Member Couch Potatoes
A wondrous title I'll admit
I wonder what I'll do with it?
Does genius color mind that dreams
Potato's link to TV screens?

A TV's 'tube' is close to 'tuber,'
Round and fat (predating Uber)
X-ray beams are bent to preen
Fluorescent shapes that grace its screen.

Attitude can be nurtured and changed

Confident people master it quickly
Despite what they are enduring

Fosters team work positivity and friendship
Give yourself a break if you

Premium Member A Random-free World
The chaos of the Universe somehow includes 
a random-free, secure, well-engineered world
with all its vital stuff: TV set, frozen foods,
a five-day working week. Ships sold for scrap, sails furled,

discoverers retired, stargazers fired. The Moon
draws only freaks. They say, the Universe...Read More

Telecast From My Past
I recall the time – 1953,
somewhere around the first of June.
A special invitation by Granny
to come in the late afternoon.

My grandparents shared their television
first of a few that were owned in that day.
We drove ten miles for a grand occasion

Hot Dog
On the 4th of July, there are fireworks shows
And barbecues, picnics and beer,
But there’s a tradition not everyone knows
For which only a few volunteer.

It’s a contest to see who can gobble the most
Hot dogs, eaten together with buns
And the winner,...Read More

Premium Member I Set Out Mousetraps
I set out mousetraps
Not expecting to catch a robber
But I did.

He was a big fellow, full grown
Nigh onto fifty probably.
Wore a mask.

Before I released him I asked him to take it off.
He refused,
And he was rude.

So I made him stay...Read More
