A Loving Wife

A bomb with a memory
'Thats armed'

A New Perspective On Old Friends

In retrospect, sitting on my frontporch in the swing,
Resigned to the fact, accepting my fate.
Not far away from the Happy Hunting Ground.
The hereafter, Azrael and Charon approaching.
A dying candle lighting the flame of another.
Then I see Tommy, who stole my crayons in the 1st grade.
He passed away years ago from leukemia.
The ant stealing crumbs from my BLT on the daystand.
In my pasture, Rebel, my prized stallion.
Then I see Jude, who always got all the pretty women.
He died 10 years ago in a car wreck.
Floating gently in the summer breeze, a butterfly.
Landing on my shoulder, nibbling my shirt, pulling me closer,
Agnes, my wife, who passed away last summer.

A Poet Is Like Smoke In The Wind

A poet is somewhat
Like the smoke
In the wind
Once on a pedestal
Then number five
Now nine hundred ten

All That Is Pleasant

Picturesque blooms wilt only to die,
Sunny days end, in darkened skies.
Slashes of blue turn to patches of gray,
All that is pleasant passes away.

Youth has it's glory, life has it's fame,
The petal is gone, yet the thorn remains.
The glory of victory, the agony of pain,
All that is pleasant passes away.

Countless friends that were, only a few remain,
Age seems to assure, might forget their names.
Old time tradition, never will stay,
All that is pleasant passes away.
