My Poem of the Day

(10/25/14)

Jack of All Trades©

I’ll do anything you ask of me

I can do almost anything

That in which I don’t know

I will learn just for you

I’m never willing to be defeated by anything

There is no such phrase as

I can’t

or I don’t know how

You ask and I am willing

Willing to go to the end of the world

Just not to disappoint you

I’ll cook your dinner

I’ll clean your clothes

Heck, I’ll even shop with you or for you

and Put your kids to bed

You give me purpose

You give me a reason

about why I’m alive

I’m your Jack of all trades

Fading Into the Darkness©

I slip slowly into the darkness

I watch the last glimmer of light fade along with me

Voices faintly heard and just about gone

Memories evaporated that are lost on me now

My size no longer matters

I no longer feel bad about my weight

No one to cackle at my clothes

I no longer care when I’m indisposed

Because no one sees but me

And those like me

Couldn’t be bothered

I miss the life I once had

But now I have choice with no demands

I’m now as peace for

The darkness shed me a new light

Slowly Dying©

You left me crying while you lay slowly dying

Stumped by a system bent on tradition

To turning a blind eye on those who need them the most

You sat in a cell

Living through hell

Day in and day out

Battered and bullied

By those who always have something to prove

Don’t ask me why I’ve relied

on

A system that’s always plotting

To be certain that you wont walk out talking

About the cracks in halls of justice

Once you fight their actions

That caused you

To no longer want

To be here among the land of the living

Instead you left me here crying while you lay there slowing dying

While I stand here fighting and relying on “we the people”

To bring you justice

On the Charles©

The river is host to many an event

The Annual Head of the Charles Regatta

Athletes from 32 countries come to showcase their talents

Hoping to be on top at events end

The picturesque walking paths host many walks and runs for all types of causes

The Hatch Shell is the home for weekly Flicks during hot summer nights

Don’t forget the fourth of July celebrations

and

Summer concerts

I’ve seen many a family picnic upon the open green

How about some Zumba to keep you fit

The Charles brings miles of smiles to all kinds of faces from all kinds of places

I’ll always fondly remember my time on the Charles

Hunter and Braden Gandee complete journey in Michigan


Cracks in the Foundation

Today we woke up determined to

make a visit to one of our favorite places

Is has several names

Castle Island

Pleasure Bay

Fort Independence

To us it’s the place we go

At least 3 times a year or more

Sometimes we count:

Each step we take

Each boat we see

Each dog that barks

Each child we hear

Each seagull that flies overhead

Each plane that takes off

Each plane that lands

Each car that comes

Each car that goes

But the most fun thing to count

Are the cracks in the foundation

Ants scurry to and fro

Weeds sprout all about

And sometimes we sneak a peek at what lies beneath

Suddenly its time to go

So the last place to go

Is for fro yo at the main gate

We lick, lick, lick

As the clock tick, tick,ticks

Counting the time that’s passed

And the time that’s left

Next time won’t you be our guest?

Please watch the 5:30 video we made (see below).

Credits show when the cracks in the foundation end,

but after the credits roll you will see a compilation of our visits to Castle Island

over the last four years. I hope you enjoy it.


Despite damage from the collection of recent storms, Jamaica Pond is still beautiful. Our girls enjoyed the 1.5 mile walk around. So many happy faces, families, students, couples, bikers, pets and fishers. What a glorious day.
