Ode to a cluttered table. NaPoWriMo #19
Ode to a cluttered table
O' cluttered table;
You soothe my soul,
Lift my spirit.
I find comfort in your
A florid runner, rosy
And lacy-- lays
Buried beneath the potpourri
Of words, tools, synapses
Connecting thoughts, ideas,images.
This jambalaya seems random
Until the inked paper comes
Alive. Meaningful messages caress
The page; breathing life,
Whimsical gallimaufry sates my libido.
Whether scented candle, Korean inscense,
I am free to amuse myself
With silent meditation,or
Smile, in the mirror?

The List NaPoWriMo # 18
Books, always books; poetry books, how to,
lessons to follow. Dog-eared, bookmarked.
Magazines read and unread, reread.
Brass holder to keep pages open.
Candle lantern, crossword calendar
Puzzle-- Note calendar
Moleskins, Kindle, scattered reminders;
grocery list, todo, opening lines.
Pens; fancy, plain. #2 pencils
Coasters, place mat, assorted bill receipts.
Cough drops and crumbs;
Crumbs of last night's repast.

A proverbial adage. NaPoWriMo # 17
Birds on a cliff flock together
Better late than in the river.
Black berries in your hand are worth more than on the bush.
Haste is the mother of all waste;
A little learning is a good start for
Those who live in glass houses; should wear clothes.
It's better to lick honey covered flies than
To catch a curious cat or
Kill a book with a clouded cover. So
Don't write your proverbs by the batch.

Liars, lies and confabulation. NaPoWriMo #16
The planet earth is a fictitious plan
dreamt by a scientist from cosmos' black hole.
She was Isaac Asimov's daughter, Hera.
Her crowning achievement; planetarium--
Into which she placed a petri dish
Inside a crystalline terrarium
Populated with cartoon characters
Called lawyers; principled entities
Entrusted to facilitate justice,
Equality, liberty for themselves.
