DING-DING

That psychedelic

Funky relic

That I tripped over

On the way to school

Made me stumble

And fall

Doing a somersault

And I broke my flipflops too

***************

Why didn’t I see

There in front of me

That colorful

Awkward thing

***************

Because, I was on my phone

Just a texting along

Instead of watching ahead

Ding-ding

HER SEASON

The last sunset to grace her eyes

Brought her tears of joy

This precious gift of life was ending

In this she had no choice

Tree, Sunset, Amazing, Beautiful

But, oh, what delight she knew

From childhood to old age

The seasons that she’d witnessed

Blessed throughout her days

***************

And as her loved ones gather ‘round

To pay their last respects

She smiles as each one kisses her

And hugs her around her neck

***************

A whisper, barely audible,

To bid them all goodbye

As her heart stops

And she smiles down

Above from where she flies
