Nursery Rhyme

July 29, 2021
Last used July 29/21






Dismal failure
comes to mind 
when I recite
a simple
nursery rhyme. 

They speak of laughter
a joyous time 
while in my heart
cries of disaster 
no merry
nursery rhyme. 

Dark place
that’s what I feel 
what comes to mind
nursery rhymes.

Knowing Not

Knowing not
What the day will bring
Hoping, anticipating
All great things.

Here in my heart
I will bring
The best I can
It will mean everything.

The Idea Came

The idea came
Staying maybe for a day
Not a word was said
Just everything conveyed
On a thread of thought
Streaming thru my head
Ending in my heart.

No word was spoken
No lips moved
Instead an idea alone
Placed its thoughts
Quietly in my mind
In my head
And forever in my heart.

Muhammad Ali

June 6, 2016

Muhammad Ali died yesterday
Such a glorious life gone
Gone yesterday.

We never met yet I know
He did so much to make my world
His world a better place to stay
Muhammad Ali died
He died yesterday.

May you soar like that butterfly
May you sting, sting just like a bee
For in my heart I see, your soul, your heart
Now rise, soar oh so gracefully
Muhammad Ali.
