Slipped In Between

I can’t see the man I used to be
So now I’m chained and wished to be freed
Could memories be laughter’s conclusion
Or dark imaginings both consuming

Having read the lines I slipped between
Flailing in the deep not being seen
None stopped the crash and cries not heard
Is the phoenix an angel or firebird

Frugal Profile

It’s your consideration taken first when asked for my opinions. Believe me when I tell you I do have my own opinions but learned our decisions always work better together.

I offer you my coat to help keep you covered but never smothered. I’m a faithful companion and easily compliment those that are important to me. I also keep candy corn in my pockets for dollar movie night.

I communicate with silent smiles, shrugs or frowns when it’s more important to chew gum silently. If we were to be separated in a social setting we’ll have developed a system of saving signals like waving our hands frantically high above our heads so as not to alarm those we are talking to.

I really prefer to being a social mole but I do have a stash of iridescent wings and strap on stingers for the occasional get together. Oh, my wings are small solar panels. They will flash and flicker even with the wrist looped flashlight I gave you and that way you can find me if there’s a black out and you hear me giggling but only use it if I ask to be rescued  (I also keep a keysteered replacement battery and bulb {just in case}).

If you enjoy a two man tent, Fishing poles, tackle and fire side cuddling because that way during fishing season we’ll be golden. I will go hiking and camping when we can’t fish, but if we had a koi pond in the backyard I’d walk around the block instead.

Frugal budgets are important these daze. I thought I found a way to reuse pop corn bags and old curlers. I learned the hard way that the foam insert can catch on fire in the microwave. You already know about staples and plastic barrettes too I’m pretty sure. I finally found a pot at a yard sale for $15.00 with no lid.  I know, not very efishent or frugal. Sigh…

I follow written instructions really well if you ever need for me to check on your cat and plants. When I do read instructions I read them aloud because it helps me to remember them. Just remember to punctuate because I can get light headed.

BTW, I tried to read my profile over phone to my mom and when I started to pass out my friend took my profile picture. Don’t mind the helmet, I wear it whenever I read…. Just in case.

Crystal Ball

The mention of her name still turns a tear
With sharp echoes stabbing my inner ear
Our fortunes together were never clear
As the crystal ball rolled away with the seer

Friends of John Stover

A friend of mine, Barbara P. shared a series of conversations with several people that surprised me that followed John.

I was a personal friend and worked with John. Let’s share.


Grasping For Since

Keeping in mind we are slaves to our thoughts
Coins thrown in the well doesn’t let wishes be bought
Time flies aging and the past slipping sought
Becoming bewildered filling with fraught

Do I continue I’m at a stand still
Fog is settling in I’ve taken my pill
Much has been taken including my will
Resting in peace no choice but to be still
