Sunday160-Life Is A Date
The fire is burning,
The wheels are turning,
The bells are ringing.
Bylines and bygones
reveal where love belongs.
Life is a date,
Enjoy the heat,

Magpie #42 In 55 Words-Why Not Enjoy Life's Winter?
Snow falls tumbling down,
The sun gives a frown;
Trees make a cold stare,
As cars pump smoke in the air;
Snow crunches beneath our feet,
As snowmen are built down the street;
Icy wind makes a lonely howl,
The moon remains modest like an owl...
There's only ONE winner,
Why not enjoy life's winter?
Willow’s Magpie #42

They Called Each Other Honey
There once were a sir bear named Funny,
and a lady bear named Bunny,
They got married
without feeling hurried.
They laughed and hopped
until their heartbeats stopped.
Funny loved Bunny,
Bunny cherished Funny.
They called each other Honey,
And they looked absolutely darling.
This is a poem 4 Thursday Poets Rally Week 33.

Every poet is welcome!

They Inspire Me 2 Write More Poems...(4 Monday Potluck Week 9)
Dear Friend, Welcome To Jingle Poetry Monday Potluck Week 9, Please feel free to submit any poem, not necessarily related to the theme to our potluck today, have fun!
The Following is my entry related to the theme: Fortress, Buildings, Monuments! Enjoy!
Carved to honor the U. S. presidents in Four,
Museums with guarded doors,
Made to display antiques and dinosaurs.
The Great Wall,
Built to fight a painful war,
The shopping mall,
Constructed to host business store.
The petting zoo,
Specialized to farm animals for kids cute,
The public school,
Supported by the government to educate kids, a tool.
I like concrete walls,
I love waterfalls,
I enjoy solid floors,
I fancy small animal print-paws,
I fear cold wars,
I avoid clinched jaws.
They inspire me to write more poems.
Buildings, fortress, and memorial constructions,
They produce consumer productions.

Sunday 160-An Owl Is Wise
An owl is wise,
An owl hoots;
An owl hides
in dark woods.
An owl is cute,
An owl is against those who pollute;
Respect an owl,
The way you do to yourself NOW.
What can you say in 160 characters? Check it out on Monkey Man at

Today I Write It Down
The day was hot,
People stayed indoor a lot,
While I was mopping the floor,
I heard a knock at my door.
I looked outside,
It was a boy with a bike.
He looked tired and red,
Smiling nervously, he said:
“Could I interest you an initial 3-month newspaper subscription?
I am raising fund for my college education.”
I made an instant decision,
Paid him in cash to his satisfaction.
The boy was gone,
I was left alone.
Listening to a soft song,
I pictured the PRIDE of the newspaper boy!
Months have gone by,
The impression of the boy refuses to die.
Today I write it down,
Wishing him a bright future on his own.
This is based on my real experience!
I submit this to ABC Wednesday, P is 4 Pride.
This is also Thursday Poets Rally Week 32 Entry.
Happy November To You all!
