A Sensitive Constant

Love’s gentle whisper

Brush me beautiful

With vivid shades

Of grace,

Leaving a sensitive constant

Within warm delight

In crimson folds

If a thankful heart


Cold Weather

How do you feel about cold weather?

I like cold weather because

It’s good sleeping weather.

I like to stay in bed with a good book,

And with a hot mug of coffee.

I don’t like it too cold though.

Down here near

The Gulf of Mexico it doesn’t

Get too cold and it doesn’t

Stay cold.

Collar Bone

Have you ever broken a bone?

When I was 16 years old I decided

To take my 10 speed bike

For a ride in my neighborhood.

I went down a grassy hill

At full speed, never thinking

Of holes in the grass.

My front wheel hit a whole

And a went flying head first,

Landing on my left side,

Passing out.

When I woke up I tried

Getting up with my left arm

And I realized something

Was not good because

Of the immense pain.

My mom took me to the doctor ,

Took X-rays and saw my collarbone

Was fractured.

He put a sling on me

That pulled my shoulders back.

It took several weeks to heal

So no surgery was the thing back then.
