The Name Game

Texas Red Grapefruits, Friskies cat food, Coca-Cola, milk, and assorted video games. Just a few items with names.

Humans love naming things — look around you, and I bet you’ll see dozens of names.

The Christmas Path

The path to the new year always goes through Christmas and the last seven days always seem to last forever as the anticipation for the Great Refresh builds.  The annual dinner this year was held once again, complete with classic songs from the bandstand.

Winter is anew
Sunshine blotted out
Ready for a cold nap

#NaNoPlobano2016 Day 27

Victory Lane

transam
The object of life is to come in first
Get behind the wheel, quench your thirst
Racing the asphalt, so hot under sun
Outlasting your competition, the battle be won
The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat
The beauty of it all
Is so bittersweet
And now you are
In the driver’s seat
A whole lot of options
As life continues on repeat

Victory

Piano Fingers

pianofingers

These magic fingers

The ones of the pianist

Delicately dance across the keys

That sweet sound telling me what I need to hear

The clairvoyant voice in my ear

I have been reminded that the music

Is the one thing the world can’t destroy

It is the threads that mend even the most broken hearts together

And without the music I am lost without a cause

Just a leaf in the breeze, watching the days pass by

Magic

#NaNoPoblano2016 Day 20

Supermoon

jh

Behold, the Supermoon
The one we’ve been waiting for
Years in the making
A shiny bulb on the shore
Now closer than ever
You can clearly see
That this moon is special
Shining, big and bright
Like a lighthouse across the sea

But tonight
I was crudely disappointed
That the Supermoon they had hyped
Was nothing more than the usual
A tiny dot in the night

Might as take pictures from before
And call them the Supermoon
Because there’s nothing really new
The old bore since June

Tiny
