These are a small collection of my short poems. I do hope you will like them.

Everything is Big in Texas



Everything is Big in Texas

Contrary to popular belief
Everything seems
To be roughly
The same size
In Texas
Except the hats.

Breaking Down


Breaking Down

It is always
a bit of a surprise
and worry
shamed together as one
when we find ourselves
helplessly waylaid
on the dark side
of a long and distant road
without a jack or spare,
becoming lost
on the far end
of our new beginning.
When just yesterday,
when our world
was laid before us
as pretty as it could be,
and our road painted
in brighter colors,
that it was us
who went speeding bye.

Haiku 17


Haiku #17

Always remember
When daylight falls from blue sky
That bright sunshine comes

Too Skinny


Too Skinny

Never diet so much
That the largest part of you
Is the narrowness
Of your mind.

When Fasting

It is said
That the more one fasts
And prays
The closer to God
And the veil
One gets,
But always
Keep in mind
To be careful
Not to fast so much
That you
Fall through.

The Art of Balance


The Art of Balance

The trick to balance
Is not how fast you pedal
Or what bike you ride,
But to always remember
Just how far
You can bend over backwards
Before you fall flat
On your kettle.

Broke As a Joke


Broke as a Joke

What we call bankruptcy
For business and citizen
Is what they call
Deficit spending
For government.

Taxed


Taxed

When a person is taxed
30 percent
Then surely that person
Is 30 percent a slave
And only 70 percent free.
For you see
When you steal my apples,
You steal my labors.
When you steal my labors,
You steal my liberty.
When you steal my liberty,
You steal my life,
That which I have labored
And planned for.

Haiku 23 and 24


Haiku 23

Those who are moral
Will never be offended
By moral choices

Haiku 24

Being free people
Is not an entitlement
It’s an enabler

I have been writing since the beginning of time it seems, not because I want to write, but because I have too. My favorite form of writing is poetry, all kinds and types of poetry.

I enjoyed all but I did have a favorite - Never diet so much
That the largest part of you
Is the narrowness
Of your mind. lol!
