Nature Exposed

Brand new growth exposed,

Vibrant green buds breathing life,

Alive, succulent.

Exposed

“A Hunting She Will Go…”

In pursuit of a,

fat mouse or a juicy bird,

Yarn simply won’t do!

Wanderlust

Gray Roots

My Gray Roots are showing through,

Colour-Me-Blonde in a week or two,

My gray roots are showing through,

Doesn’t seem to matter what I do.

My gray roots are showing through,

Wiry hairs causing one BIG hullabaloo!

My gray roots are showing through,

Time to throw an overt coup,

My gray roots are showing through,

“Silver it is, unless I go blue!”  🙂

 

Aaa-choo!

A mist, a spritz, or a spray will do,

Otherwise, you leave me no choice…

Aaa-choo! Aaa-choo! Achoo!

Perfume

Two Wrong Feet

I jump out of bed,

It’s time to go!

I surely can’t be late.

I hit the shower,

My breakfast I devour,

Off to work in a rush.

Something seems off,

It’ll have to do,

Finally, I arrive.

I paste on a smile,

Feels like I ran a mile,

I wonder if they’ll notice?

The meeting commences,

They warrant a look,

There’s nothing I can do.

The damage is done,

The laughs have begun,

We’ve all been there before.

Next time, I’ll get it right,

I swear I won’t hit snooze,

Then, maybe I’ll have on…

A matching pair of shoes.

 

Knackered

Why Are You So Cranky?

Was it something I said?

Did you hit your head?

Why are you so Cranky?

I cleaned up our room,

And I swept with the broom,

Why are you so cranky?

The sun will come out,

No need to shout,

Why are you so cranky?

I went to the store,

And bought plenty more,

Why are you so cranky?

Holidays are coming,

You are usually humming,

Why are you so cranky?

The bills are paid,

Our plans are made,

Why are you so cranky?

Your heart has a beat,

You are walking on two feet,

Why aren’t you grateful?
