Hello Good Blog People,
Just to let you folks know that I will be away for some time as there are urgent personal matters that require my wife and I to return to Canada. Our house in Texas will be sold but we do not have a place in Canada so are not sure when we will be back online. Over the next two weeks, we pack up and drive from Texas to western Canada. We did let our dog “Doc” know that we are going on vacation. He is a blind and deaf senior dog and loves going in the car, especially on vacation!
my dreams flew by
on gossamer wings,
too high to reach today
even on tiptoe
It was a warm, slightly overcast, Thursday afternoon, heading into fall. Two low wattage bulbs barely lit the dark, one room newspaper shack. We called it a shack because it consisted of 2” x 4” materials, with a door, a small steel barred window and without insulation on the walls. My older brother and I finished placing weekly adverts in the papers and headed out to deliver them.
Humor is a mysterious word
Humour with “U” should not cause a bird
Testing the waters across the pond
Brits stretch with ease, rather far beyond
Whisper silent greetings, imparting tongue-tied milieu
Each day does link together in hopes the words come true
Good mornings and good nights often faceless on a stage
Ricochet such empty words inside an empty cage
There are ants in my pants ranting as they climb
Marching up the pant-leg, like a pantomime
Panting as they chant, enchanting as they rant
Nibbling where they shan’t, Chianti to decant
Demons and angels invite themselves into our world
Horned engine red, polar opposite, adorned and pearled
Burrowed on each side, positions taken out of sight
Braced for all-out war, dueling battle, ensuing fight
Blogging is healthy
Blogger banter it rewards
Peaking like a mountain top
Spurting like a soda pop
Vapor rising up from down
Resting o’er the fairest crown
Many thanks to, Millie Thom, for tossing me under the lorry (awfully large truck), given I have never been selected for much of anything and am slightly nervous at this time. I will get over it! See, it was not that difficult!
Sincerely, thank you very much Millie! I truly appreciate you giving me this wonderful opportunity and allowing the selection of some Great Authors who fit the criteria for the same award. This was quite a lovely request!
