Small Time Art ~~ a Ditty

Reaching my Potential;  
Small time Art with Stickman style 

Stickman Art, reached my potential
Some are born with silver pallet
Beautiful hues in jars beside

That is a life I never knew
Born into share cropper family
A different life awaited me

With knees astride speckled pony
Friends were make believe, we would play
Corn fields and pastures nature's green

Yearning for those days departed
We are born with what we're to have
Make the best from there, Stickman Art

A Notebook Story -- a poem for Tuesday Platform

There was this lady. She was a fine Little Old
(ER) Lady, a LOL, training for my brain
She was someone's mother, someone's mother-in-law

I never saw this lady without her notebook
she and I were calling it her little black book
You may have been written there, I was in it well

She'd look you in the eye, write your name in her book
Chances are she didn't know your name, so she'd ask
Seems she and you or I were talking yesterday

Then she'd write what we were saying and where we were
Her written word would be her memory later
today or tomorrow.  Alzheimer's is awful

(May be continued another day--check here)
