Mom's Lullaby 

Roused from my sleep
by my mothers melodious voice,
a warbler singing dulcet notes
quiets my baby down.

Surprised, I can almost guess
the next note she will sing
Of course I do...
she used to sing this song to me

I continue my nap
knowing no harm can happen now.

Big Mac Left His Burger  

He would not have done so
in spite of the vote for his ouster.
But a mountain shall explode you see
and so he had to, and did!

A little juvenile,
for his departure,
I could not decide
if the meat is raw
or overdone.

I don’t know how many
calories he left behind.
Explosive ammunitions
for the heart
and too much catsup
spoils the taste

So next time I partake
of Big Mac's burger
remind me that I don't have to
because I cook a lean, mean meal, too.

A new poetry ezine! 

It's now out! My friend's, Arlene Lawson's and her friend, Bob Wands' e zine is now out. It's called the country mouse. Our very own, Belle Nabor, has several poems in this ezine and you can read them here. Also in the mag are poets in my writing group, Sarah Sloat, R. Joyce Heon and Martin Miles whose poetry then, we refer to as Martinesque for its very original, almost surreal imagery. They are joined by excellent poets in english like Scott Murphy,Richard Holinger, Jill Beck, lilith who I believe designed the site, Senacle and Ron. Lavalette.

I had been friends with Arlene for more than four years now. She visited me in 2000 and we had been very good friends since then. She's lola to my kids and very much a part of the family. Join me in congratulating the owners of "the country mouse" and the poets who shared their fantastic works so that we may read and enjoy them.
