based on “Lion” by James Berry

Color of grass, a lily pad, a jungle
Floating flat on his belly
Like a log in murky water
Small dragon, stronger than a wildebeast

The Black Lamppost
based upon “The Red Wheelbarrow”
by William Carlos Williams

so much depends

the black

weathered by

beside the old green

Through The Years…

When I was 11, I met a boy who was 12.
His questions and inquiries into my heart did delve.

When I was 14, the boy told me with a grin
That someday, for certain, I would surely marry him.

When I was 16, we talked for hours and hours.
It was he who gave me my very first flowers.

When I was 20, the young man asked me to share his life.
When I turned 21, I became his wife.

21 more years have passed since then.
Through joy and pain he's still my best friend.
I am often asked if I'd do it again.
Without hesitation I'd be "all in".

When I am old with my days soon to end
The gleam in my eye will still be for him….

My soulmate, my love, my very best friend!
