Goodnight and Goodbye

It’s “Goodbye Old Man Winter”

We’ve waited for today

Not sad to see you go

Haiku

Tomorrow is the First Day Of Spring! Yay!

Mirrored

Is that really me or an imposter,

A pretender that looks like me?

That kind of action I don’t foster!

Is that really me or an imposter?

I dont see my name on the roster,

But a resemblance I do see!

Is that really me or an imposter,

A pretender that looks like me?

Triolet

While waiting for my grandson today I caught an amusing site on video. My daughter’s porch has a mirrored medicine cabinet sitting on it waiting to be carried into the house that apparently caught the eye of a little bird.

I sat watching as the little bird saw his reflection in the mirror and kept trying to figure out who that other bird was. It was very cute to watch.

Marching

Basking in the warmth of her sunshine

I walked awhile with March

Dreaming of hot summer days

Until she led me through a glen

Where winds blew cold

Thru shaded trees

Where Winter

Hid Spring’s

Smile

Nonet

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. —Charles Dickens

Forwards or Backwards

Go snow

Either way you say it

The meaning is the same

We dont want you around here

Snow go

Cinquain

A friend of mine used to say”There’s a lot of truth in jesting” and in this case it’s true. The poem may sound humorous but it’s meaning is real 😊 Snow be Gone!

Listen to the Lyrics

Some words on paper

Come alive and touch people

The alphabet will speak

A heartfelt message of truth

To those willing to hear

Enjoy

Enjoy the little things

Before they slip away

Life a new day brings

Enjoy the little things

A bird that sings

A sunny day

Enjoy the little things

Before they slip away
