Not My Nature




Never Nimble

I never knew a nimble note,
With painful practices by rote.
I play by ear,
But so sincere,
Not choosing what composers wrote.

For harmony may soon be sought.
It’s neither borrowed, loaned nor bought.
Notes blending sweet
May often meet
When creativity is caught.

Thus, unexpected, life is found
With melodies beyond profound.
I trip and fall,
But after all,
May I the critics all confound.

Tuesday

Mixing It Up



 
Combat Zone

They bicker, bellow, bray and bawl.
Some mornings, it’s an all-out brawl.
But sisters ever will they stay.
As such, they never will betray.
Neighsayers, best be on the ball.

Monday

Legends and Lore




Clan-Destine Council 

We linger late in lamplight low,
To look again at long ago.
Each adds one more,
Legends and lore,
As family fables ebb and flow.

Saturday

Keeping Up with Kicks

 
Kickin’ It 

My brand-new kicks have style to suit. 
They fit my feet with colors cute.
I hope they’ve springs
Or Hermes’ wings
To trim my times in runs to boot.

Friday

Jump into Jams



Just a Jersey

Just a jersey, tattered shirt,
Sporting streaks of food and dirt –
Perfect pick.
Grab it quick,
Shed the stain of daily hurt.

Comfy clothes hold magic might, 
Once we step from social sight.
Loosely togged,
We are unbogged,
At least, we feel thus overnight.
