Curmudgeons at work
Do not make my day easy.
I will blame the heat.

Friday, June 29, 2012


To eat and to drink
Are among life's finer points. 
Don't be abstemious.

Thursday, June 28, 2012


If you used this highbrow word,
You might seem less crass.

Wednesday, June 27, 2012


Flowers, fountains, stars
Explode in the night above.
Summer festivals.

Tuesday, June 26, 2012


Fire in the sky;
Confusion down on the ground.
The sky fire wins.

Monday, June 25, 2012


On a quiet lake,
So many points of light float.
Evening fireflies.

Sunday, June 24, 2012


Emblem of summer,
The lightening bug bobs around.
I free it outside.

Saturday, June 23, 2012


There is such quiet
In a hot afternoon.
It's time for a nap.

Friday, June 22, 2012


Too hot to go out,
I sit inside with the cats,
Wishing it were cool.

Thursday, June 21, 2012


The last place on Earth
I thought would be so pleasant
Was Hell, Michigan.

Wednesday, June 20, 2012


At the library
There is snorting and jabber.
This is not the place.

Tuesday, June 19, 2012


After the storms left,
The air grew thick, wet, and hot.
Twas too good to last.

Monday, June 18, 2012


A summer rainstorm
Swept through two days in a row.
We have been lucky.

Sunday, June 17, 2012


A fresh new hairstyle
For the hot summer weather.
More than hair was cut.

Saturday, June 16, 2012


A warm enough sun
Coupled with a gentle breeze
Equals Lazy Day.

Friday, June 15, 2012


Today is too good,
Too bright, and too beautiful
To be spent inside.

Thursday, June 14, 2012


Between the headstones,
They follow in our footsteps:
Cemetery ghosts.

Wednesday, June 13, 2012


In the bright hot sun,
Among the shade of the stones,
We're seeking the dead.

Tuesday, June 12, 2012


The clouds clear away,
The rain refuses to fall,
As our hunt begins.

Monday, June 11, 2012


I set out early
On an adventure with friends.
The theme is magic.

Sunday, June 10, 2012


On a day of rest,
With air so humid and hot,
It feels good inside.

Saturday, June 9, 2012


The day will be hot,
But in the dark of morning,
I remain content.

Friday, June 8, 2012


The weekend ahead
should be quiet and peaceful.
Instead, it's like this.

Thursday, June 7, 2012


The bright afternoon,
Coupled with a cool spring breeze,
Should be much enjoyed.

Wednesday, June 6, 2012


The planet Venus,
Star of evening and morning,
Dark spot on the sun.

Tuesday, June 5, 2012


Tonight in heaven
We'll see a goddess softly
Slip past the sun god.

Monday, June 4, 2012


The wolves are silent
As they lie in the cool shade.
Like domestic dogs.

Sunday, June 3, 2012


A giraffe's black tongue
Is slick, slimy, and greedy
As it seeks out leaves.

Saturday, June 2, 2012


The promised sunshine
Was the most welcome of sights
After a gray storm.

Friday, June 1, 2012


A little light rain
Is all that is required
To raise humidity.
