We sail the distant seas,
complying with Commander's orders,
so we can minimize
the threat which lurks beyond our borders.

Through all kinds of weather,
we take the fight to them to ensure
the future will not bring
another Nine-Eleven massacre.

“The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter. ’Tis the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.”
~ Mark Twain

This Task

This gargantuan task
of finding precise word
must be done with finesse,
searching Thesaurus cask
with effort undeterred
by volume of excess.

So, we are called word nerds,
but we have such a blast!

We are itching to
explore something new,
when August seduces us
with pleasant weather.
We leave together
in tie-dyed Volkswagen bus.

There's nothing finer
than roadside diner
to meet and greet local folks,
linger for a while
and share friendly smile
beneath sprawling ancient oaks.

Charming episodes
along country roads
give relaxing getaway
special energy--
so happy to be
on our way to Santa Fe!

We are having a sweltering heat wave,
and Mom is burning to a crisp, poor thing.
She sits beside the pool with drink in hand
while her skin gets red and blistered, poor thing.

We are staying cool while swimming in pool,
unaware of Mom's dilemma, poor thing.
Come time to leave, we find her shriveled corpse,
still sitting there with drink in hand, poor thing.

Off to school we go
to learn a lot of new stuff
and meet some new friends,
exploring academics
and social life at same time.
Friday night sock hops
release all that energy
when homework is done.

Frogs and crickets croon
their summer serenade while
fireflies flicker, float.

Stop the hate
completely
with kindness.

Continue
stop the hate
commitment.

Kindness wins
when people
stop the hate.

In search of answers to life's mysteries,
we look for wisdom written in night sky,
rummaging through celestial galleries

and listening to woodland melodies
along the country roads in late July,
in search of answers to life's mysteries.

We wander Main streets lined with dogwood trees
and hope to gain a bit of knowledge by
rummaging through celestial galleries.

We try to weave poetic tapestries
and comprehend the many reasons why
in search of answers to life's mysteries.

Disturbed by some oppressive memories,
we forgive the past and bid that pain goodbye,
rummaging through celestial galleries.

Above all else, we pray upon our knees
and ask our Lord for guidance from on high
in search of answers to life's mysteries,
rummaging through celestial galleries.
