One should have a good laugh at least once a day, no? So here’s one I stole (borrowed, lifted, whatever) from my cousin Allen’s blog:
“Eggs benedict should be served on a hubcap because there’s no place like chrome for the hollandaise. ”
Might as well stay in and blog as it is getting very close to 100 degrees here in southern New Mexico. It seems dangerous to have opinions anymore as someone will no doubt be offended, so perhaps I better stick to the weather and poetry.
Here’s a quote I like: “Writing poetry is like walking naked in the world.” That is, when you share it. I kept mine covered up for years but now let’s hang it all out for everyone to see !
Here are a couple of short ones:
I turn out the light.
I open the window shades,
and bathe in a shower of moonlight.
As I stretch onto the welcoming bed
I hear a lullaby rustling and
whispering in my palm trees
and feel the breeze saying goodnight
in the music of a wind chime next door.
The taste of coffee is love and passion
and if you love it too
we will live at Starbucks
and attain immortality.
I have no doubt
because of love and coffee
(which informs us of
why we love, why we share,
why we drink, and why we care)
we shall overcome.
