Come. Let us sit, And play pretend. Our eyes will perk, As our minds wend, Over each rainbow, Around each bend. Each firefly, or new found friend, Will find a magic to attend, That culminates the perfect blend, Of soulful spark and happy end. Continue reading

Those ultra-sonic squeaks and squeals, That are burning rubber off your heels, Do not come from bats or seals -It's my children!

He battles flu upon the sofa -Wrapped up in a man-burrito. His back it pangs, His head it wangs, His joints crunch like old Doritos. Then sweet and caring -Thoughtful!

The sky is orange. The grass is red. The Autumn leaves are blue! Dare to ask: "What color?" You'll get a glare, Coupled with the opposing hue. Hot is cold. Meek is bold. And tickles really hurt! Bricks are soft, As they float aloft! And the vacuum, you'll find, squirts!... Continue reading
