Shingles Have Taken Over My Face

Shingles have taken over my face
Pain and tingling, ravage taking place.

Pills medicate leaving sleepy
Laying down the only peace.

Mending now, I’ll take a rest
Hoping soon to be in a better place
With no shingles on my face.

Searching, Reaching

Reaching ~ Photo by Patrice

Searching, reaching
For something of the best.

Finding, finding
Maybe then I can rest.

Tired, tired of searching
Reaching for the best.

Even so I will continue
Cause if I stop, I’m sure
They’ll lay me to rest.

Let It Rest

September 5, 2013

Summer Easy ~ photo by Patrice

Skirt the issue
Let it rest
That would be best
For now.

Don’t know where
It’s going to lead
But for now
Let it rest.

In the future
Down the road
All will be explained
All will be told.

Let it go
That’s what’s best
So for now
Let it rest.

Monsters Reign No More

April 20, 2013

Monsters of Boston Marathon ~ photos courtesy of CNN

Monster caught
Without a shot
Only a few hundred
Just before
But then he’d killed
Some more.

Now folks can sleep
And get some rest
A monster kills
No more.

His brother dead
Shot in the head
But not before
Bombs blew again
Once more.

Hid himself
The monster did
Bleeding not running

Police had him
In a trap
Then he slipped away
Once more.

Hid in a boat
David’s boat
Couldn’t sneak away
No more.

Bleeding he’s found
Shots exchanged
Bullets ripped
Throughout the scene
Then a silent theme
Once more.

Police quietly hid
And waited til monster
Could no more.

Kill and maim children
Who hadn’t done a thing
To him
A monster is a monster
No more.

People cheered
And clapped their hands
Celebrating far into night
For the fight is
No more.

Cheering police
Thanking them
For risking life and limb
Bringing in a monster
Who won’t kill again
No more.

Monsters reign no more.

Sleep Is Good

November 1, 2012

Sleep is good
We too must rest
Poised upon the heavenly crest
There to see
All the work we’ve done
And now must rest
Drooling on our chest.
