I Like

Want to write a poem. Make a list of things that make you happy or things you would like to do. Now rearrange them until the words sound just right. It's easier than you think.

Skipping pebbles in a brook
Catching fireflies
Coyotes wailing at the velvet moon
Gazing at star filled skies
Munching apples on a stick
Watching puppet shows
Tossing sticks for wag tailed dogs
Wiggling my toes
Sending messages to friends
Birds with bright hued wings
Petting a donkeys neck
I like many things.

Dancing Daffodils

Spring is here again. Isn't it wonderful. Don't forget to enjoy the flowers. I've written a short poem to celebrate.

In my garden before me lay
Dancing flowers in full display.
Waving gently in the breeze.
Dancing by the budding trees.

What a joy it was to see
The daffodils dancing free.
Not hidden by a fence or wall
But dancing to be seen by all.
