Through These Doors

Little Debbie

Why do you continue

To tempt me

With snack cakes

Luscious oatmeal pies?

Left in a mood

Incredibly terrible

The curb resembled

A banana–something edible–



Do Something With This


Hide this flaming fireball

For me–would you?

Creator said to earth

I’ll be back tomorrow

morning to pick it up

What will I get for my trouble

asked skeptical earth?

You’ll have peace–eternal peace

Rain and Labor Day Mondays

This Labor Day weekend has been a rainy one.

Because of the rain, oppressive heat has temporarily disappeared along with the sun.

The parade of beachgoers that cut their vacations short, clog the highways.

It’s been an opportunity to get rid of some inside clutter.  What good were pieces and parts of old solar yard lights?  After four-plus years, there was no guarantee they’d ever work–even with new batteries.
