Labor Day

On this day

the day that means the end of summer

people get together to celebrate

the party is usually outdoors

there’s barbecue this and potato salad that

music is being played

all are having a good time

there are pickup games for all to play

it’s a great way to catch up with friends and family

let’s hope the weather is just right

it doesn’t get too bad around here too soon

one has to remember their cameras

to capture all the memories

memories talked about for years to come



The Peach Tree

When I’m looking for a snack

the peach tree is where it’s at

I get big and tasty peaches

I try to go for

as much as I can get my hands on

then they end up in the house to get washed

for all my hard work a peach is my reward

man, how sweet they are

you’d think the peaches were injected with some kind of sweetener

if I knew how to bake

I could have a lot of peach cobbler

maybe some ice cream too!

is there a such thing as homemade peach ice cream?

how much does it cost to make it?

I’ll enjoy the work that was put into the tree

Especially the  gold nuggets that came from it

the best friend

I’ve always wanted a pet
large ones are hard to care for
I’ll always fear getting bitten
small ones are are a lot easier
there’s no big hassle at home
little ones can be so cuddly and playful
a light brown to a caramel color
some spots are okay too
with a toy the fun gets better and better
exercise for me a plus
if they bark or meow makes no difference to me
having a pet can brighten my day
especially if there’s nothing on the agenda today
after a day of fun
it’s time to unwind
my pet might be beside me
listening to music
or watching a funny show
the only time we’d part
is when it’s time for bed
there’s nothing like having someone
that special cuddly, furry one
after a long time of being alone.



Ever have a moment

where everyone is talking

if you try to say anything

you can’t get a word in at all

I’m so full of ideas

that no one will listen to

everyone else can speak their mind

I have to live in today’s world

things I love

I never get to do

it’s not appropriate

here where I live

word spreads like the speed of light

I’m hoping for a day

where I don’t have to worry

a day where I am free to be me

where I don’t have to step on egg shells the rest of my life.

(I am in no way trying to do more than express my feelings)

Love Is…

Love is

two people connected at the heart

they’re friends first

friends forever

both know each others thoughts and feelings

no deception seen here

then comes love

looking into each other’s eyes

they cry tears of joy when they see each other

love tugs at their hearts

a hug sets of tons of fireworks in each other

stars are shining bright

as they walk along the boardwalk

they are two people in love

taking their journey to a higher place

two people-joined as one.

What Do I Do Now?-now that vacation is over

I spent most of the summer keeping busy

trying to forget that I was on my own

I read,I wrote, I even played with my niece

nothing was too good enough for me to do

now that all is said and done

where do I go from here?

long days and long evenings of sitting around

knowing that I am capable of so much more?

the kids have lives(school)

when do I get mine?

I have been sitting around for too long now

If  I could just do something

so my life could mean something

I have a big problem with just sitting here and pretending

when all that’s going to happen

is me being  fit and unhappy

people complaining

I want a part of the action too

I’ll be sitting here living a lie until then
(this may seem like it’s about me-but it’s not-creativity at work  here,people!)

In the wee hours of the morning

I went outside yesterday

got my fill of sun and air

then I went home for the night

slept for a while

dead to the world

then reality slapped me awake

with no way to keep up with time

I was going to have to rely on the light in the sky

I got up, walked around

then I went right back to sleep

woke up again and felt like I was outside at night

I swear, if there were any crickets

I would have heard them!

After walking  around I went to my bed

guess I must have dozed off

there was no sleeping anymore

so I just got ready for a new day

of more sun!
