The years have flown by
One day you're thirteen and free
Then you wake up old

Friggin' Clouds Block the Lunar Eclipse on 2/20/08

Oh, silly, shy moon!
An eclipse eclipsed by clouds.
Lunar event missed.

Sitting here in Tampa Bay and wondering where all these clouds came from screwing up my view of tonights lunar eclipses. Curses!

Good PET Scan

"Your PET scan is clear."
Like an angel's pronouncement
From my nurse's lips.

Mental Junk Food

TV, movies, web . . .
Minds occupied by garbage
Miss God's messages

Don't get me wrong - I love TV, movies, and the web. I just wonder, though, how often I might miss something beautiful or interesting because I occupy my mind with this mental junk food.

Waiting by the Phone

Waiting by the phone . . .
Why haven't you called me yet?
I want my results!

I had a PET Scan almost three weeks ago - no results yet, for fudge sake!

Oh, Dog!

Gnawing and chewing
You happily destroy stuff
Even though its mine

Discarded papers
Random bills, cards, old letters
So much stuff thrown out

Watching old movies.

And soft cuticle.

Golfers roam the greens
Swinging at little white balls;
Talking business

Credit card offers, flyers.

Restless, fitful sleep
Tossing. Turning. Entangled.
The alarm screams soon.
