Inn Keeping…

Extra
Time spent
On the road
Rush hour in two
States

Most
Of that
Road time hubby
Was on hands free
Phone

Helping
A different
Customer than who
He will be helping
Tomorrow

Ten
Long hours
With few breaks
Finally arrived – no dinner
Yet

Almost
To the
Evening’s ninth hour
Can we unwind to
Rest?

(g) Out to the Inn… (6.23)

Out to the Inn…

Busy week
Leading up to
A short weekend away
While he works…
I’ll walk about
And maybe even play

Grands and errands
Were the demands
And now summer’s begun
Time for some fun

Even through
The morning rain
The cardinal bird appreciates
That I’ve filled the feeder full
– Other fledglings still think
My garden strings come at free rates

Maybe after chapter of mystery book
Or two I’ll pick up a pen and look
– Observe my surroundings and jot
Down a poem or simple plot…
*
(Adieu, adieu, to you
and you and you…
Until around the bend
I’m home again…)

Spent!

Car
Inspection time
Add some minor
Details and four new
Tires

Along
With thunderstorm
Threats and actual
Pounding rain – hours spent
Waiting

Brought
Snacks and
A mystery book –
Hours later; a lighter
Wallet

(g) Medi-Gap! (6.15)

Medi-Gap!

Rules
They command
Everything – it’s their
Constant changing that is
Annoying

Makes
It harder
To get the
Needed supplies all at
Once

So
Different appointments
To the same
Office have to be
Scheduled

Thankfully
I’m fairly
Flexible when it
Comes to driving my
Neighbor

Most
Of his
Many doctors are
Located in the same
Complex

Complex
An apt
Word for the
System that doesn’t
Cater to the elder
Population

Reflective Moment

Buggies –
Horse drawn
For courting couples
With chaperones following or
Inbetween

Sharing
The road
On a sunny
Sunday afternoon – slows the
Traffic

Each
Driver going
Their own way
Living in their own
World

Spring Summery

Last day of First Grade
For Son of Son –
Just days after his
Seventh birthday…

I picked him up so he could play
For some part of the afternoon
With Little Miss – For the most
Part they do play nicely together

Within Son of Son’s book bag
Was a booklet he had made – of his poetry
An acrostic of his name and one with Mommy
In the Middle and of course others about trucks

I think I’ll teach him about Efjie poems
Tomorrow – since both he and ‘sissy’ will be
Spending another long day here before they
Officially start their summer vacation with Mom.
