Day Dreaming

I dream of the day when I can see you
Hold your beautiful face with my hands
Kiss those sweet, sweet lips that are mine
To touch the reality that has touched my heart
I roll over, and the moment takes its escape.


I glanced away and somehow it escaped. Nonetheless, the moment is not lost, for, the image was imprinted deeply in my mind.

I don't always trust what I feel, but, sometimes I take chances. I might buy an ever-so-occasional lottery ticket. Flip for the kind of sprinkles I want on my ice cream... watch a show on TV once - just to give it a chance. I have even canceled watching it, only to find out I didn't give it enough of a chance. Sigh. But, I don't count my steps or avoid sidewalk cracks like my life depends on it. I am bold like that.


All I have are my words, armed in my mind, written in pen, stand by stand. Oh, yes. Still by hand. It has a different feel. Altered not by keys, backspace, and delete, I write, erase, tear it to pieces and start all over again. And again.

It’s my way. I walk out to the deep end of the page and dive right in.





The Naming of Cats

The Naming of Cats is a difficult matter,
It isn’t just one of your holiday games;
You may think at first I’m as mad as a hatter
When I tell you, a cat must have THREE DIFFERENT NAMES.
