Stand ~ Acrostics Only (a Limerick)


Sitting still is not food for my soul

Talking weird turns my blood boiling droll

Always funny and gay

Never dry or decayed

Drinking wine 'til can't stand dug my hole

One Single Impression: Overt


Brothers: Overt and Covert

Once there were two brothers of Wright
they were different as night and day
Fred was always dapper and bright
Ted was quiet, loved wearing grey

Fred was open, always forthright
ask him he'd tell your answer plain
but Ted talked in riddles not right
kept his thoughts inside how insane

Died years ago now with the ants
shared their tombstone aptly inscribed
Fred--open frank and apparent
Ted--hidden secret and disguised

Depends on how you write your book
do you want your friend's second look

The picture above was taken last week at a nice little boulangerie in Copenhagen. Turns out we didn't buy anything. I don't know why (we didn't).

Sensational Haiku Wednesday is hosted by Jenn. Please click on the logo to the right for more info and more Haiku Wednesday participants.

I'm still on holiday and will be back to the States but not for a while.

Please leave some comments now and then while I'm gone. My computer will come with me and I'd like to hear from you. Your comments are like letters from home.
I might even leave more little photos or poems or notes here now and then like this one.

And I'll read your blogs some.

But probably I won't resume returning your comments after until I return.

Today was my mother's birthday. She would have been 99 years old had she lived.

I still miss her, she was Mom.
My mom.

A lot of us don't have mom's anymore. If you still have one please give her a hug today for me. Thank you.

And if you don't have a mom now then you can shed a little tear with me.
Thanks to you also and may God bless you.

I just love a little nip of Jack Daniels during my bath.
It makes me feel so invigorated.
Would you care for one also?
