“Any healthy man

can go without food

for two days-

-but not without poetry.”


~ Baudelaire



Elfje:        (Cinquain)



wish for

generate good karma

for only what’s needed





fall waits quietly

warm earth helps summer linger

daylight becomes less




wafting aromas Saturdays baking
taste of heaven in the making
natures best mixed with love
taught by angels from above

apple, peach, cherry pie
the best molasses makes shoofly
scones, eclairs, turnovers and  strudels
oh me, oh my, I could eat oodles

remembering things that were home made
just down the street by the crazy old maid
sitting, cooling on the open window sill
shes watching us with looks that could kill

one for each, she would finally say
happiness to savor for the rest of the day



ME and the Boss
