new poem

"to sleep"

I want to sleep
A slumber so deep

On my soft bed
I shall rest my head

I am exhausted and weary
My sleep is tarry

Much to my dismay
I did not sleep all day

I am plagued by insomnia so deep
'Tis vexing me so I could weep

Now I hope to dream and snore
A rest I'll truly adore

"autumn thunderstorm"

It's mid afternoon
Leaves rustle under foot
A satisfying crunch

I see my breath,
suspended in the frosty air

The fierce wind howls
Swirling vortices in the leaves

Rich vibrant hues saturate the ground
Red, yellow, orange and brown

The sky is overcast
With dark storm clouds

A gentle drizzle soon turns
Into sheets of torrential rain

I hear thunder crackle,
Booming in the distance

I soon see lightning
It glows hot and sizzles,
Piercing through the air

Eventually the storm fades away
The air smells fresh
I return home

Obama - 8 years of utter failure and incompetence!



President Obama is without question the worst president in US history! His handling of foreign policy was inept and amateurish, his Obamacare abomination cost millions of people to lose their coverage, and it made the rates skyrocket for yet millions more, his handling of race relations were awful. What did Obama accomplish in 8 long years besides raising our national debt $9 trillion! He is an abject failure any way you look at it.

In one week we'll be swearing in President Elect Trump and we should finally see some good governance!

poem

"Autumn Impressions"

I walk outside in the afternoon.
The fresh cool wind embraces me.

Leaves crunch under foot.
They form a rich tapestry of multicolored hues.
Red, orange, green, yellow and brown.

I visit Starbucks.
I get a pumpkin spice latte with whipped cream and nutmeg.
A nice piece of pumpkin bread rounds out my meal.

Later I arrive back home and lay down for a nap.
I dream of Thanksgiving turkey and pumpkin pie.

A veritable feast!

We just finished our Thanksgiving meal! We had yams with brown sugar and marshmellows, steamed brussel sprouts, carrots, mashed potatoes, turkey, stuffing, mushroom gravy, homemade cranberry sauce, gel cranberry sauce, and crescent rolls! For dessert we have homemade sweet potato pie and minced meat pie and eggnog! WOW I AM STUFFED!!!!!! :D

new poem

"Eat"

food is sublime
an ode in rhyme

whether it is pasta
or pizza pie

I love eating
sometimes French or Thai

give me bagels with cream cheese
or a strawberry cake

my senses are delighted
I am ready to partake

ramen noodles I like
and hamburgers too

I want some cheese fries
and beef roast au jus

there are so many cuisines
I never grow weary

I'll eat it all
and my stomach stays cheery

so bring on your cupcakes
and your tacos as well

a nice roasted turkey
sure is swell

I'll have some pumpkin pie
and moo shoo pork ad lib

spaghetti with meatballs is nice
also I'll have some prime rib

here ends my tale
I think I'll eat some quail

New poem

"Violet"

My sister Vi is so sweet and kind
I can always talk to her
If there's something on my mind

When I am sick and unwell
She nurses me
Until I feel swell

We can chat about poetry
Films and 80s songs
Our banter is always lively

She is a poet and an artist too
So talented
Her focus is true

Vi is my best friend
And my roommate as well
Eclectic we tend

We always communicate
Whether by text, phone, email or in person
Our discourse will never stagnate

Vi and I share faith in our Savior
Jesus Christ the Lord
We shall be with Him in eternal favor
