Cat on WhatsApp 2.19.352

Tossina is a sweet little cat

A bag of chips and all of that

Instead of catching mice all day

This is what she had to say,

“Come to dinner, if you please,

I’ll only give a tiny squeeze.”

Here’s a poem I wrote back in 2016:

PICKLED EGGS

A jar of pickled eggs sit on the bar, just so.

Long the years they’ve sat there, but does anyone really know?

Would you dare take a chance on greenish eggs of age?

‘Twould be safer taking a bite, if they were colored beige?

***

Photos show:

  • Lots of eggs in a flat, from my cousin’s chickens
  • Decorated funny Easter Eggs
  • Broken egg in egg carton
  • Double yolk egg frying in skillet

Drum, Drums, Music

Hot June night

Amusement park picnic

Merging with the new days

Drumbeats stir my old soul

Past Life remembrance

Dreamsicle Skies

***

Found this in one of my old notebooks from probably 2016.

Dreamsicle Skies

Tell no lies

Rainbow promises

To make you cry

With wonder – thunder

Chastens those who doubt

Look within

Heed without

Dreams of hope and peace and love

Cast your eyes to heaven above
