If had the time -- a set of poems for Tuesday Platform

If Only I Had Time 

I'd clean the garage
I'd buy my spouse a new car
wait that takes money

- - - - - - - - - - -

if I had the time
cookies for the folks I'd make
my time's in the jar

- - - - - - - - - - -

all it takes is time
what they told me long ago
my time's gone I'm old

- - - - - - - - - - -

if I had the time
I'd write a nice little poem
wait I'm no poet

- - - - - - - - - - -

I'd give you the time
clocks have stopped would if I could
if I had the time

Painting is easy when you don’t know how, but very difficult when you do. Edgar Dégas
The same goes for my poetry attempts (don't know how, but I enjoy it!).

Copied from my older post of January 25, 2009 and submitted for this week's Tuesday Platform

It is a compilation of five senryu verses.  The clocks along with several other clocks and a toy poodle, Katrin, were gifts to Mrs. Jim from her very dear friend.
Katrin died December 2, 2014 of heart failure.  We loved Katrin so very much.

Please Let the Little Doggie Sleep ~~ A Weekend Mini Poem


please let the little doggie sleep
or he will love you to death
slobber and kiss, jump and squirm

he didn't finish his homework
went to sleep in the book
we needs to tell the teacher

learned to read at the age of three
that's young by doggie standards
the little guy's a genius

genie to let out of the bottle
be careful though, he'll slobber
kiss, jump on you, and squirm

That's what dog genii do (jē′nē-ī′)
