What Is The Question ? ? ?

the answers.”

Poem:

.

there is this kitten from hell
all he does is very loudly yell
a needy cat all he wants is attention
the energy level is from another dimension

the cat in the mirror is his newest toy
full steam ahead, no need to be coy
such a little thing with such a loud purr
so much life in that small ball of fur

always in trouble, too much curiosity
to the family he is a source of jocosity
no, no, let go of that curtain
looks like he’ll need all nine lives that is for certain

will we still love him when he becomes a cat ? ? ?
probably, as long as he doesn’t become a bureaucrat

The Final Achievement

.

“Simplicity is the

final achievement.

After one has played

a vast quantity of notes

and more notes,

it is simplicity

that emerges as

the crowning reward of art.”     

~  Frédéric Chopin

eased
let up
calm the nerves
glad to be me
pleased

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5
.
please pay the piper
compensate
donate to the cause

Poem:
.

azaleas blooming, red, white and pink
at the Masters it is the signature drink
the tournament renowned as  golf’s best
for the players it is the ultimate contest

for many it is physical prowess tested
Mark Twain called it a good walk wasted
for the spectators it is the ultimate garden
so pristine, Mother Nature will never need a pardon

azaleas announce spring from Florida to Pennsylvania
followed by the seedless families cryptogamia*
camera ready, a springtime beauty to behold
many precious memories more valued than gold

why does man hold on to his history
the ego is at the core of this mystery
who cares how many tournaments this man has won
let us find a way where everyone can have some fun

.

ME and the Boss

cryptogamia*    in a former classification systems: one of two major plant divisions,
including all plants that do not bear seeds: ferns, mosses, algae, fungi.
