Poems written the last of October 2010
Hurricane and Tornado
met on the shore
for the championship bout.
Round ONE went to land.
Round TWO went to sea.
Round THREE and they each
knocked the other out!
To test their mettle
they devised a game.
Each boy would shoot
ten arrows in a row.
The one that hits
the most stars wins.
Aliens loved to visit Earth
That was the planet of all their pets.
Then the last visit, with tears in their eyes,
they saw that all the dinosaurs had died.
The architect, Vitruvius
said that a building has three tests;
will it first keep standing up,
will it function for what it was built
and is there some delight in it.
a forest of ladders
in the orchard
on the water
all a quiver
I took a spider web,
turned it into a blueprint,
and built a harp.
Pulsars, quasars, and black holes , Oh My!
I'm the president of two clubs: Band all Leaf Blowers, and No Ads on the Moon.
If you think bands are progressive, we aren't even in the same century.
Molly's life plan was to mop up the stars spilt in the Milky Way.
Hope you enjoyed these recent poems.
