Limericks

There once was a small rabbit from Siam,
Who always proclaimed, “I think I can”,
In time he did grow as white as the snow,
Now he gives auditions on the tram!

There was a smart fox with ginger fur,
Who was happy and started to purr,
No one could catch him,
No trap with a latched trim,
He outsmarted them each time it occurred!

There once was a poodle named Frou Frou,
Sometimes it was large crowds that she drew,
From start to Finish,
Her pink nails and her image, stuck by her as if they were glue!

There was a monkey who said “tee hee”,
He’d laugh and strike his knee,
They knew he was funny,
Therefore, no dumb bunny,
For people enjoyed his company!

There was a couple out with a camera,
Who saw a sailor slip on a banana,
When he looked up to see,
They said “Dear me”,
As he hopped on a ship to Panama!

There was a young witch in a ditch,
When her broom was stuck she took a hitch,
Now she’s no longer solo,
For from a gentleman she borrowed,
Now she’s a judge watching Polo!

There once was a young man from Duluth,
Who did not like to tell the truth,
His friends weren’t buying,
Then he gave up his lying,
So, he wouldn’t look like a goof!

There was a young man from Boring,
Who was often lounging and snoring,
Then one day on a whim,
He learnt how to swim,
Now he looks forward to every morning!

There was a young girl with a moat,
Who wore a polka dot coat,
When she crossed on the bridge,
It fell flat with a loud hinge,
While on fairy wings she did float!

Lessons From The Hobbit

Life Lesson from a Best Seller

In appreciation of the nature trails of New Zealand,
It was not the journey, but friendships that formed as a band,
The time and memories strengthened, and kept challenges at bay,
Best friends to the end learnt wisdom in treks of clay,
Hardships built strong characters, with life where they roamed,
From where they were comfortable in their larders at home,
From where they were comfortable they travelled,
Stories inside the story became clear and unravelled,
The dangers could be lesser, through Poetry and Song,
When hiking in good company the road is never long,
The twists and turns in life itself with the unfamiliar turf,
Help us grow and propel us forward, for all it’s worth,
When travelling with a pack there is nothing to lack,
Good company will always see you through, 
Supported by each others strengths’, in all you do!

Dolphin Dialogues

Dolphin Dialogues

From bright turquoise waters it rose,
With a mischievous grin, the baby bottlenose,
While shifting glances, double laughter filled the air,
Two dolphins play together, as though they were a pair,
Bobbing heads and tails, sending waves that spray,
For all the baby dolphins are geniuses at play,
They jump, one, two, trailing sprays like a plume,
Looking back with the pack, sweeping tails like a broom,
The mid day sun has melted into warm orange heights,
Then packs of threes enjoy the breeze into the moonlight,
Light glistens on the ocean, as a final “V” shaped stripe,
With cascading winds, the twins are in the final blanket of light!

Ice Crystal Chimes

128 Words Poem

Ice Crystal Chimes

Staggered shapes of ice crystal chimes dripped pools on the concrete floor,
Cut of pink stones floating as castles in the air,
Drive on torrid wind, no stopping here, pour beneath the sea of din,
Passing through gated entranceways of marbled halls,
Echo soft slippers off steps between the walls,
Enchanted evenings roar when sun shines up the mist,
A forever garden in the courtyard with bushes of hibiscus,
Then sunsets ablaze, that’s bright and brazen,
If heaven could talk, this golden city is a haven,
Moon swept shadows illuminate night,                                                                                                          Upon bold construction, up many flights,
The labyrinth occurs for time on repeat,
While porticos of shade escape the heat,
Voices call come down, homeward bound,
Salads and pot lucks bring them together,
Counting on sunshine pleasures!

A Star Studded Escapement

A Star-Studded Escapement

The foot of this lookout begins with a range of mountains and valleys in a tangle,
Juxtapositions alight that fills the mountain veins with snow at various angles,

The trees run wild through the valley covered floor,
This forest of green meanders along, as the paths’ core,

Clouds circulate and dapple the sunlit horizon in shades of light,
Their movement conjures up a gesture of continuous flight,

Creating shadows on the mountainous cape, at bright of day,
Plays on painted colored contrasts, illuminating as they may,

The snow caps reach to heaven as their eroded surfaces are shaped,
Flowers linger through the valley, where the forests drapes,

Engulfing the mystery of this scenic arrangement,
This fair path free of hindrance makes a great escapement,

The floral tapestry weaves throughout the treed mountain base,
Enjoying the view and the culmination of beauty is what we face.
