Raring to go, Spring is here ~~ a Challenge Poem

 
Our Bags are Packed
 
Our bags are packed, my Pony is ready
The flowers are blooming, we are raring
Raring to go West, flowers are bluest
Texas Bluebonnets beckon, pictures please
 
I'll bring my love, park her in the middle
In the middle of the blue bonnet field
We won't be alone, others there gather
Wait 'til the sun is setting, flowers fade
 
Meanwhile bide our time, walking hand in hand
In the morning the spring dew awaits us
Spring dew, Winter's frost freshened just for us
Top down day again, off to next fresh start

Today I am linked with Herotomost at The Real Toads, ....An Old Man's Fancy There Corey invited us to write poetry to the spring.  We've had spring here in Southeast Texas ever since February ended.  Yes, our Texas Bluebonnets are out.
 
The Ford Mustang is my retirement gift to me, I call it an old man's four-wheeled motorcycle.  It is a 1998, now 17 years old and has 102K miles.  It was two years old with 50K when I rescued my little pony from a little old lady.
 
I also have my Mom's, a 1974 Mustang II Ghia with 78K miles.
The beagle is my Adi Jane, my love and BF.  Adi died in November, 2013.

Cottage on the lake -- Play it Again Challenge

 
Cottage on the Lake
 
A little cottage on the lake
Quiet place I can get away
Draw, write, compose, fly time away
 
Fish in the day and watch for snake
I'll clean my fish then fry and eat
Nature calls, has city life beat
 
Live off the land, a life to make
Rest and peace brings creativeness
Need no more for persuasiveness
 
Watch the stars at night while awake
Listen, their story jot it down
Paint the scenes from my sketches drawn
 
From my small cottage on the lake
I've forgotten business rat race
And done a complete about face  
 
A little cottage on the lake
 Fish in the day and watch for snake
Live off the land, a life to make
Watch the stars at night while awake
From my small cottage on the lake
