Small Circles


Small Circles

Make small circles
with a spot of
water on a cloth.

Make small circles
Work the polish
into the leather
to create a gloss.

Make small circles
The end of  another
day is near.

Make small circles
Can't wait to
get out of here.

Make small circles
Only a few weeks
of boot camp left.

Make small circles
Wonder where these
spit-shined shoes
will take me next?

Do you shine your shoes?

Trails


Trails

Choose your path.
Paved or natural,
straight or winding,
flat or steep.
Welcome to walkers,
bikers, runners, riders.
Consider where it leads
and what trails behind.

Do you have a favorite trail?

The Shape of Things


The Shape of Things

Shapes help me
shape my thoughts.
Triangles make points.
Squares even things out.
Rectangles present the
long and short of topics.
Circles take me 'round
and 'round until an
octagon makes us stop.

Are you a doodler?

Today is Poem in Your Pocket Day. Share poems!

The Last Page


The Last Page

The journey
is nearly
over, the story
almost told.
Who did it?
Will the lovers
stay together?
Do the monsters win?
Turn the page
and read until
you reach
The End.

How do you feel as you reach the last page of a book?

Three-Foot Putt


Three-Foot Putt

One yard.
Hardly any
green between
the ball and
the cup.
Line it up.
You should
make this putt.
Aye, there's
the rub--
expectations.

It's that time of year. Anyone have any golf anecdotes to share?

Green


Green

The first color
of spring.
A sign of growth
in leaves, buds,
blades, weeds.
A preview of
the brilliance
to come.

What color makes you think of spring?

Power Gardener


Power Gardener

I walk behind my
self-propelled lawnmower.
Neaten around the trees
with an electric weed trimmer.
Plug in the hedge trimmer
and shape all the bushes.
Whew, yard work takes
a lot of energy.

Are you settling back in to doing yard work?
