A Single Glass of Water

Oceans are deep

And rivers are fast

Water has power

The dye then is cast.

 

No life could exist

No land would be shaped

Through use of that liquid

Our world is landscaped.

 

We drink it and bathe

Even play on its back

We hide from its power

It takes quite a knack.

 

Sit back and give thanks

For that drink in your hand

The cells of all life

Through water is planned.

Move Along

 

Move along,

Move along now

There’s nothing to see

Don’t furrow your brow.

 

You cannot stop moving

If you want to live

There’s work to be done

And so much to forgive.

 

From birth until death

There is a progression

With life in the middle

It’s at your discretion.

 

The choices you make

On this journey of yours

May help or may hinder

For those keeping scores.

 

Now is the time

Take stock of your self

Should you be living

Or left back on a shelf?

 

Move along,

Move along now

There’s so much to see

If you only know how.

In Earnest

 

The quiet of dawn

Was a wonderful spell

I cherish the moment

But I’ve something to tell.

Ginger, my friend, said

I think there is more

The sun’s in the sky

And we’re keeping score.

It happens in earnest

The day will begin

The peace of the morning

Is gone on a whim.

There’s breakfast and dressing

The others to awake

I hate to admit it

It’s not a mistake.

To pay for this life

We cherish each day

It comes with a cost

There’s no other way.

We must get to work

With crowds all around

Fighting with traffic

Oh, what a sound!

There’s huffing and puffing

And scurrying about

It happens each day

I leave you no doubt.

Exhaustion sets in

As you dream for an end

Counting the days

Till you can amend.

Fondly remember

The peace that you had

And know in your heart

The rest isn’t bad.

I’m Just Say’n!

 

My first time on earth

Was the moment of birth

When my feet hit the ground

I was running!

 

Move on a few years

Through laughter and tears

And I ain’t stopping

For nuthin!

 

They say time catches on

To where I have gone

The ravages will show

Notwithstanding.

 

That’s really just fine

I think it’s a sign

Cuz now I am running

on wheels.

 

Life is for living

And it’s all I am giving

I think I’ll be here

For a while!
