Ridiculous grief.
Anguish over a small dog.
But, he was my friend.

Talk of last night's shows and news.
Office family.

Friendship In Times of Grief

Friends sit in silence.
Hands clasped. Tears. A grief observed.
Love transcends language.

GRRR! Bark!

GRRR! Bark! Go away!
Two, small dogs act brave behind
A sliding-glass door.

Little Girl

Little girl laughing.
Her chiming, chirping giggles
Fill my heart with joy.

Frantic to reach her.
Longing eyes said, "I missed you!"
She paused for his paws.

Dreams sink slowly like sugar
in my coffee cup.

Lotto Fantasy

Lotto fantasy:
Mariachi band singing,
"Ay, ay, I quit." Sigh.

Life Looped on a Metal Ring

I lost my darn keys!
Life looped on a metal ring.
How inconvenient.

Caffeine, please help me.
I surrender to the hot
Cup of wakefulness.

Slave to the inbox.
Like Pavlov's dogs I respond
to a ringing bell.

Aisles of worker bees making
Corporate honey.

Paperless society
Seeks to destroy you.

Under sunshine's spotlight on
A hot summer's day

Satellite service is out.
I miss you so much.

Sweet, Sunday silence.
Day of rest. Holy Sabbath.
God reveals Himself.

You annoy me so.
You slack-jawed, knuckle dragger.
Please leave my office.

Murderous intent.
My body turns on itself.
Mom, I have cancer.

Doctor's office scale.
Holy crap! I weigh how much?
These shoes are heavy.
