Memo: From Me

Gray Squirrel

Dear Gray Squirrel,

Tell me, what are you looking for!

The bird food you do deplete,

Yet you keep passing by my door,

Is your search never complete?

Your manners I do deplore!

Always looking for a tasty treat!

You’ve had that, yet look for more!

Your greed knows no defeat!

Rhyme

This poem was inspired by the gray squirrel that lives in a tree in my backyard who seems to never get full nor tired. He is always eating or searching. He is cute but can really be a pest at times! 😊

National Compliment Day

Bouquet of Flowers, compliments

Admire someone today

Bless them too

Compliments pay

Delights spew

Encouraging words say

Favors do

Give thanks or pray

Honor a few

Inspire not inveigh

Just give a hug or two

Kindness display

Laud anew

Make someone’s day

Nod out of the blue

Ovation convey

Praise imbue

Quiet gratitude portray

Uplift in the midst of ado

Visit to chase away gray

Write thoughtful words true

X-out actions that cause dismay

Yes, bless others all day through

Zip berating, give a kudos bouquet

A Winter’s Delight

Ornamental Cabbage and Kale In Winter coved by raindrops

Cabbages and Kale

Wear Ruffles and Pearls

In the land of kings

They dance til dawn

While sparrows watch

And nightingale sings

Their splendor soon fades

As warm breezes kiss

And sunshine brings

The end of Winter’s ball

And thus herald in

Sights which are Spring’s

Squirrel Saga Continues

Squirrel in bird feeder eating seeds

Mr. Gray Squirrel is back today

Eating from the feeder like it’s okay

“You’re a funny looking bird” I say

My comment causes him no dismay

“Mighty fine sunflower seeds” says he

“Quite worth my trip down the tree”

“Ah yes, but not meant for you” says me

With a smile and nod, away he does flee

Narrative/Rhyme

To Be Continued….I imagine

Time Less

HourGlass lying sideways

Unfinished projects abound.

Each day showing me they’re around,

They shift and fall and fret,

Hoping my attention to get.

Some buried beneath a paper stack,

Just lie in wait for what they lack.

Others in plain site collect

Dust, as each day them I neglect.

Sadly they all sit, waiting for the day,

For me to have time to bring life their way.

Whose Hand?

Hands
My inner child’s asking

“Whose hand are you holding

As you walk today?”

“If it’s the Hand of Pleasure,

She will lead astray”

“If it’s the Hand of Worry

You’ll have a bad day”

“I’m holding the Hand of God”

I say, ” So I’ll always be okay”
