ODE TO A JAPANESE GARDEN

I am transformed in this quiet place
am taken back in time
when geisha walked here with white face
and peacefulness was sublime

silence but for the song of the bird
the splash of the water broken by frogs
just sounds of nature to be heard
and the sight of turtles sunning on logs

ahhh, glorious, ancient world of green!
you fill my heart and mind with peace
I marvel at the beauty of your scene
which never changes, will never cease

the bright orange Koi wait to be fed
the chameleons lay immovable on a leaf
birds fly aimlessly over my head
and I am filled with Zen belief

you have the power to take me away
from the world of confusion, noise, and rush
you calm my hurried, hectic day
I sit and contemplate in the hush

oh, Japanese garden, please never change
stay as you are, in silent splendor
always familiar, never strange
as I, to your peacefulness, surrender

The Japanese culture is exciting
From their food to their clothes

Especially their mode of travel
Fascinates me, goodness knows

The Joy of Travel

What a thrill it is to travel
Perhaps in a different country
The cultures incredibly diverse
So many wonderful things to see

The clothes can be so different
Unique in their treasured styles
An entirely distinctive kind of people
With their friendly happy smiles

And the food can be quite challenging
Different tastes and how they eat
But, hey, I’m ready to try it
Doesn’t have to be potatoes and meat

Different ways and thoughts of worship
It is such an international treat
To see the different cultures
And all the interesting folks you meet

So if you get a chance, folks
Get on a plane or cruising ship
Take yourself to another country
Have a great and wonderful trip!

A Simple Redneck Love Poem

Dandelions

We love to ride the world as it goes around
Sometimes we even make a joyful sound.



I came upon a little pond
A place I’m now quite fond.

The sun set down so lovely
Such a perfect time for me.
