Summer Went on a Vacation – a poem
The birds are chirping up on a tree
And the air is warm – all summery.
You are sitting in front of me,
Chewing incessantly, the whole day on that old celery.
A nag, a snag, an invitation to a nature retreat.
To have a vacation just about now sounds like a treat.
You look at the window, eager with a smug,
I know you need a warm big hug.
A hug of the energy-filled summery force around you,
From all the favourite people around you,
A hug of the sweet smell of a flower.
Of all the favourite events that will empower.
All cozied, you sit there with a warm cup of tea,
Not even singing a song outside by a tree.
Are you still watching those old re-runs on the dusty tv?
We are twins, but I know what’s better as I am older than thee!
The falling orange foliage and migrating birds pave their new ways;
I am Summer, noticing the shorter days.
Winter, stay home – use your imagination,
While I go on my coastal beaches, sun-filled warm vacation.
I’m Having a Great Day – a poem
I’m having a great day.
I just ate the best sandwich,
And had some delicious tea,
But how could it be?
You don’t look as happy as me.
Just look outside at a tree.
Such a beautiful, wonderful tree,
And the birds are nesting upon it.
Look at the flowers and leaves with glee.
You are having a great day just like me…
What could it be?
Should we invite a musical band?
To enlighten the ambient sound.
Just give me a hand,
And dance along to the music with me.
Is there anything more one could want?
This is such a wonderful, beautiful day.
