Haiku – Little Miss Magic

Baby girl sleeping

Tucked away in sweet slumber

Dreaming happy thoughts


I’ve been listening to this song for a long time, and now it resonates with me so much more. I thought I would post it along with this Haiku today. My girl is only 5 days old, and yes, I am making her a Parrothead already.



Poem – Shy Mole

There once was a mole named Larry

Who wasn’t very hairy

His skin was pink

So he started to stink

And his friends all moved away


My son has a book by Jack Prelutsky called: The New Kid on the Block.

While I was reading it I thought up this poem.  

Here’s an example of one of his poems.

Be Glad Your Nose is on Your Face by Jack Prelutsky

Be glad your nose is on your face,

not pasted on some other place,

for if it were where it is not,

you might dislike your nose a lot.

Imagine if your precious nose

were sandwiched in between your toes,

that clearly would not be a treat,

for you’d be forced to smell your feet.

Your nose would be a source of dread

were it attached atop your head,

it soon would drive you to despair,

forever tickled by your hair.

Within your ear, your nose would be

an absolute catastrophe,

for when you were obliged to sneeze,

your brain would rattle from the breeze.

Your nose, instead, through thick and thin,

remains between your eyes and chin,

not pasted on some other place–

be glad your nose is on your face!

Poem and Haiku – Happy Mother’s Day!

A blessing from God

True love within her kind heart

Soul full of joy

I wrote this poem a while back and posted it to this blog last year around this time.  I thought I would re-post it in honor of this special day.  

How to describe a mom,


it may be too hard to do,

without leaving out,

too many things,

that are true.

For a mom is a blessing,

a true gift from God,

her patience and virtue,

is something,

you could never prod?

Haiku – Margaritaville

Need some time to waste

Get lost for a day or three

With my wife and son

Been stuck in a medication fog for the last 5 days and I have about 5 more to go.  Just need to get away from all of this stuff with my family.  Our June vacation can’t come soon enough.  Crawling through the days just waiting to see the beach again.
