June 4, ’16

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:

SUMMER NIGHT

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.

 

COFFEE

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

and passion

(which informs us of

why we love, why we share,

why we drink, and why we care)

we shall overcome.
