A Fairytale Limerick…


With hair as black as night
And seven friends challenged in height
Asleep from a snack gone amiss
Awakened by her hero’s kiss
She’s the princess known as Snow White

He Is That Song…


He is that song

to make your heart dance

with the rhythm of love

His voice exists

for you alone

Your reason to breathe

a lyrical explosion

Guitar strings strummed

while harmonies soar

and emotions crescendo

The beat pulses

deep in your soul

You crave him

He is that song

Birth…A Lighthearted Limerick



If not for birth, where would we be?

Still stuck inside the mama’s tummy,

First we were sunshine in the sky,

Then a little twinkle in daddy’s eye,

Now a wondrous gift for all to see!

Twas the week before Thanksgiving and I’m a bit surly

For the holiday season was starting much too early,

I decided to walk Dog through a nearby park

Where his only interest was on those things squirrely.

We passed joggers dripping from the evening heat

With most of them looking entirely beat.

When what to my wondering eyes did I see

But a peaceful bustier, up in a tree…

I assumed it was a jogger who had gotten too hot

But thank goodness we saw no one without her top.

Dog and I started for home and were nearly out of sight

When we heard, “A cool Thanksgiving to all and to all a good night!”

(With apologies to Clement Clarke Moore)

Feeding on Folly

I know I’ve told you before about the park near our house where Dog and I like to walk. Truthfully, as far as parks go, it’s not much to brag about. But it’s serviceable and allows Dog a good run.

It’s also a nice place to walk if I need a bit of inspiration. Case in point, what I saw this week:

UnderwearAlright, so what’s the story here? What causes a person to throw their underwear up in a tree? And before you immediately leap to something scandalous, remember this is a park within easy view of a major city street. (Also, this is a G-rated blog. Well, most of the time.)Sign

On the other side of the brick wall are a number of thorny, desert plants and a sidewalk about eight feet away. So, pretty sure the underwear disposal happened on this side of the fence.

Also, you can’t…
