Waiting for Spring

1) I

I am

I am waiting for the beauty of Spring



2) I

I am

I am listening

I am listening for the robins to sing



Chorus

Wanna shed my coat

Wanna walk in the dark

Wanna hear the sounds of the ice cream man

Wanna thaw my heart

Wanna see…

Coffee with Qadaffi

Coffee with Qadaffi



(M elodramatic and world weary )



My life is so boring; there is nothing left undone

Everything is la de da and just so damn hum drum

Though I’ve been to gay Paree and seen the wonders of the world

Sometimes I want to take off on the run….or get a gun



Bridge

Because my life is stinkin’

I have done some thinkin’

Gonna hop an airplane; here’s what I’m gonna do:



(This part, time to swing it!)

1) I’ll…

for Uncle Tom

Last Thanksgiving Uncle Tom said, “In all these years, I’ve never so much as gone in for a check up”. Mom says it was because he sensed that something was changing with his health, and he was letting us know in his own way. For a while, he talked about moving back to Oklahoma to be closer to us. He didn’t want to be alone anymore. But then, when it really came down to it, he changed his mind again. Decided he’d just stay on his old place up in California. He’d been living on his own little plot… Continue

Rick Reiley's 'Mud & Bone' Defies the Grave - An Album Review

Nature’s vibrant colors scarcely register on the cover of Rick Reiley’s new record, Mud & Bone, before the realization sets in that the musician’s ghostly visage sits among the headstones of a cemetery. Early assumptions abound, suggesting an album that might serve as the regretful pining of a man morose and resigned to the confines of the grave.



But the album’s inaugural track, Gulf Breeze, fans away any reservations with island energy layered atop a folky backdrop. What follows… Continue

The Nest

Made of twigs, perched high in the sky 

atop a smoke stack, not hidden from thine eye.

The twigs they poke, let in the smoke,

it hurts and I feel blind.

 

Safety is fleeting in the nest,

it's positioning is quite volatile.

I'm going, you're coming, I'm coming, you're going,

yet we watch over it all the while.

 

I know it will not last forever,

the wind will eventually blow it down.

But not until all that we…

Creative Writing Challenge #22--Write what you like , but you must use the words eloise, escalator, evelyn, edmund, executioner, and eggplant.

Eloise was just stepping onto the escalator in the lobby of the hotel where she'd gone to have her usual Friday "nooner" with her ex-boss, Edmund, who had, over the years, begun to approach their trysts with all the excitement and interest of an executioner  (hmmmm, wonder would he perk up a bit if she made him wear a black hood?), when she heard her name begin called and, turning 'round, discovered her neighbor, Evelyn, wearing a hat that looked for all the world like a huge eggplant and… Continue

Creative Writing Challenge #20 - Talk about a life lost that would change your life significantly if that person were still here.

In the late 1980s our family was blessed by a baby boom that brought us five little boys.  As they reach their landmark years of high school graduation and legal drinking age, it's hard not to reflect back on the one that didn't survive and wonder what our family would be like if he had.



All of these boys were special in their own way; Xavier was my mother's first great-grandson, Jesse was my baby brother's first child, Shane was my older brother's first grandchild, Josh was my… Continue

Creative Writing Challenge #19-"I don't make New Year's Resolutions for myself, but one I'd like to make for someone else is...."

I would like us all to resolve to be kinder in the coming year.  Let's pretend that 9/11 happened only three months ago and we're all still in such a state of shock that we can't possibly be rude or nasty or dismissive of each other.

Creative Writing Challenge #18-"The person who has made the biggest difference in how I view the holidays has been..."

The person who has made the biggest difference in how I view the holidays has been my older sister, Belinda.



Our dad was a big fan of Christmas, which didn't make much sense to me when I considered his poverty level childhood.  But now, in hindsight, I can see what the holiday really meant for him.  And I have my sister to thank for that.



Daddy's mother, my grandmother Maggie, spent all year making quilts and toys out of her fabric scraps and those pink or blue dry cleaning… Continue

Song; Don't Let It Snow Blues

Don't Let It Snow Blues

1) Punxatawny Phil didn’t see his shadow

So he predicted an early spring

Been freezing and snowing since last December

That groundhog doesn’t know a thing

Chorus

I shovel on Sunday, but more falls on Monday

When will this misery end?

We get a break for a day or two

Then the snow starts falling again

2) The Farmer’s Almanac used to be on target

And I believed what I…

Granny looked funny

Layin' there in the snow

I don't think she ended up

Where she really wanted to go

When she stepped down the stairs

To feed the kitty cats

She tripped over my snowman

And fell on her face-

'Kersplat!'........



I was laughin' so hard

I couldn't stop

Watchin' granny roll around

With the snowman on top

The cats got scared

And jumped into… Continue
