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?

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) Delightful Day (6.17)

Delightful Day

A
Walk full
Of errands this
Morning, racking up our
Steps

A
Free screening
At the local
Store, brunch and the
Bank

All
Before the
Brief rains came
Greening the potted garden
Plants

Time
For fun
After all that
He played golf, I
Read

Dinner
Before dusk –
Time for one
More chore or even
Two

(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

(g) Weaver (6.13)

Weaver

Chickadee
Needs some
Strands of string
For her little nest…
Cotton?

Picking
At the
Supports to my
Container garden…I cut
Extra…

Chickadee
Took them
Every strand on
The tall metal flower –
Stand

So
I cut
Some string that
Came from bird seed
Bags

Chickadee
Took them –
While I wasn’t
Looking – out of string?
Thread…

Blue
Dark cornflower
Blue – what little
Was left on the
Spool

Chickadee
Will you
Take them too?
I wonder where’s the
Nest?

(g) Reflective Moment (6.11)

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
