Here’s my entry for this week:

Time for Tea and an old book.

Surrounded by the green in my garden trees, I leaf thru one of the dusty classics from my shelf.

“Earl grey, hot!” is what one captain might call for, but I only like dryness when it’s accompanied by the Wit of Wilde.

Here I’m unmolested but by the occasional mosquito.

“Did someone call for a Mojito?”

Now it’s your turn. Give it a try. -mike

Goads of Fun

When all you see around you is kindling for a fire,

Dead, dry, hopeless chaff,

Remember that at least YOU have a good head on your shoulders.

Even if that means others may think you’re just a Prick.

There’s always at least one in every crowd.

Exquisite

After years of running round in circles

Racing in and out thru tables

Navigating thru the chairs

Up and over, down the stairs.

Tom said to himself, “Delicious”

One for Every Tree

Parrots can be amazingly intelligent and inquisitive when they want to.

This one’s name matches her favorite treat.

She doesn’t care for the crunchy kind, but seems to prefer the super rich and creamy peanut butter that only comes in the large plastic jars.

We even figured a way to recycle them for reuse so it doesn’t impact the environment.

One for Every Tree in the neighborhood.

Now it’s your turn. Give it a try. -mike

Repair

Welcome to the Inaugural Post of my participation in what will become a Weekly Post here, In Other Words prompted by Patricia at her blog. I learned about it from another great BLOG. Why not visit there too?

I hope she doesn’t mind me posting on Thursdays as opposed to her Tuesday posting. This should be fun.

I’ll let her explain the rules:

Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less

Here’s my entry for this week:

Daniel looked down in disgust as he started back down the ladder.

Its a very good thing no one was down there and that he was only a few rungs up when the bag slipped from his grasp.

All that was really hurt was his pride as the homeowner looked on at his slow decent from the roof top.

He’d been at this profession for too many years for such a rookie mistake.

Just now he was glad it was just the tools that took the tumble.

Now it’s your turn. Give it a try. -mike
