Burning Advice – Shadorma – March 17, 2016

“Cooling waves”
bright-eyed Sue
“won’t prevent
Dave getting frightfully burnt
just watch and you’ll see.”

And of course
she was just too right!
A lobster
was paler
than young Dave’s skin that evening
and far less in pain!

He’s happy
although a bit crisp.
He did say
he hates Sue’s
haunty know-it-all advice
and would druther burn.

The Winding Road – Circular Poem – December 8, 2015

“Gentle, go on yonder winding road,
Snowed under by this winter’s crop ..
Stop not but wander until you find
Entwined bright green mistletoe vines …”
Whispered pines (teases dressed in green
E’en as others must go bare)
“Care not for false form or cheating,” say they
“Play the game fair, be not judgmental!
Gentle, go on yonder winding road.”
