kite

16 March 2014

 

 

one flies a kite for the joy

of flying the kite, not the

glory of holding the string

as others see it.

Adam had Eve

Batman had Robin

Lewis had Clark

Gilligan had the Skipper

Shaggy had Scooby

Bogey had Bacall

Dorothy had Toto

The Lone Ranger had Tonto

Ricky had Lucy

Frodo had Sam

Hall had Oates

Tarzan had Jane

Yogi had Boo Boo

Wayne had Garth

Han had Chewie

C3PO had R2

Laverne had Shirley

Snoopy had Woodstock

 

seems like everyone

has a sidekick except me,

why am I alone?

intrusions

15 March 2014

 

 

I should have checked the windows, doors,

made sure they were secure,

it only takes a moment for

intrusions to occur.

 

I’ve let my guard down once or twice,

been hurt a time or two,

if I’d listened to my own advice,

I’d never let them through.

 

But I forget, grow weak sometimes,

still wanting to believe,

let down my guard to those outside,

too easily deceived.

 

Deceitful is the heart of man,

or so it has been said,

perhaps I may yet understand,

my heart’s just in my head.

Ass

15 March 2014

 

 

a blind donkey brays,

making an ass of himself,

but he understands.

Like the skunk and porcupine,

he’s misunderstood.

 

He has reasons for

making noise, being stubborn,

no one understands.

It’s a burden he chooses;

though he carries it alone.
