Out of dust came man

From man’s rib woman was formed

Dust and rib now one

Then the man ribbed the woman

And the woman blew the dust

A perfect prelude

To challenging days ahead

Where rib may crack, dust wiped out.

Gooseberry Garden is the new site of Jingle Poetry.

For the benefit of the doubt 😉

My darling Adam

Partake this delightful fruit

This shall make you wise

But please ensure my darling

That you take more bites than me

In Eden of modern world, have you ever been Adam or Eve or the snake?

We may have fallen but we can rise up. All is grace.

The Popcorn in Us

11/14/2010


 

'Go out on a limb'

Bear the heat

and expand

pop pop pop!

Let the ideas out,

plain or flavored hot.

pop pop pop!

Chew it and have some fun

like how you deal with some.

pop pop pop!

Identical popcorns, found one?

We’re one of a kind that’s why.

pop pop pop!

Ready the popcorn

for the movie of our lives.

pop pop pop!

How’s the movie show?

Plain? Salted? Buttered?

pop pop pop!

🙂

 


 

more wipes please!

 

I want to explore my creativity BUTT how far?

I am a good woman BUTT I am not good enough.

I want to come out of my shell BUTT it’s safer in here.

I want to sing real loud in a crowd BUTT who wants to hear me?

What? You want to hear me? Oh thank you!

Please sing loud with me then!

No BUTTS please.

 

 

Do you need wipes?

🙂

GREEN and PRETTY

07/03/2010


 

I am green & pretty.

I am chosen by a charming baby

and her daddy.

It didn’t matter if she’s heavy

as long as she’s happy with me.

It didn’t matter if I was about to burst,

being with her is what I love the most.

It didn’t matter that I am no longer in shape,

what matter is we had fun walking, running & jumping.

I may be worn out

but I am hanging out.

My baby Beatrice still wants to see me

so I am staying pretty.
