Shadows
were not seen

therefor
the grass is soon

to be green
and you and I

have toiled scraped
searched

and finally

now

a much needed
break
A blast of the whistle
and a slide down the dinosaur

it's quitting time

for life to  begin
again
A childish word painting/poem
Tweezers
buzz
"butterfingers"

and bulbous sneezer
that is touched
by a feather

to make it
sneeze
and tickle

the funnybone
Another foray into childrens poetry
A silver shiny
replica

of a handsome
hat

fashioned
for a little tuxedoed man

with a walrus
mustache

who's bald
stern

and wears pockets
that are fat
My foray into children's poetry.
mishap
maybe
but definately

not and act of God

no warning given
and no discernable
clues

just a hurling big canvas
painted with pastels
nonsensical

at best
A whimsical word painting.
Leather oil
and smell

figures into it


and crack  of the bat
sound

as well as
the other senses

and food
food is for action

not for thought
as we grasp at straws

and other metaphors
we appropriate mix

and call
American
Another abstract impressionistic word painting.
It's not that words
have failed

it's just
there are none

all dreams

crushed
like aluminum cans
An abstract impressionistic word painting.
