Toe in Tow

Lost Sock ArletteLoeser

There’s a little

Big toe

Twirling free

On the go,

As the other

In tow

Hopes its own

Sock

To throw.

Nimble Nelly

Bought a deli

And made a menu

With mashed yam.

She wrote in cheese

Hot from the oven

And sculpted bread rolls

From cold ham.

Roll Control

When the push

Comes to shove

And a full stop

Recommended,

Put a rock

‘Hind to lock

So any roll

Is suspended.

We’re Ducky!

We’re no ducks but still wish

To get

In a row.

There is no law against it.

So there,

Now you know.

Rocking It

Opus Penguin Rock Climb JimMoore

It’s a steep climb

For sure

But he feels

The allure.

This rock face,

This cliff,

He can’t help think,

“What if?”

It’s a very high

Wall,

And he’s a penguin

And small,

But he’ll attempt

Still

To scale,

And he intends

To not fail!

Hello there,

How are you, Ma’am?

I’ve missed a spot?

Oh well, oh damn.

There’s no perfection

On the lam

And I’ve really

Got to scram.

Have you seen some

Elves around?

I’ve been told to

Look for rainbows

At the end of

Traffic jams,

(And yes, I know the

Gold’s a scam

But I’ll still give it

An exam).

On The Wall

Among murals I

Would get

No prize for

Over talent,

But on this wall

I still get smiles

(And tissues for my

Exhalant …)

Black Friday

Photo prompt: © CEAyr

 

“We’ll call him Friday,” Emmaline stated.

Roger glanced up. They’d just left the restaurant and he had urgent emails to check. “Call who?”

“Him.” She pointed toward the bike, which was parked across the alleyway between a bush and a wall.

He squinted and frowned simultaneously. Emmaline’s cryptic tendencies were sweet sometimes but annoying most other times.

He saw no one. His frown deepened. A stupid black cat perched on his bike’s seat, fur puffed as if it had just stuck a paw in a socket.

“See?” Emmaline laughed. “He adopted our bike on Black Friday. Let’s call him Friday.”

Fitting In

Are they starting?

Oh, hold on!

You most certainly

Belong.

They did not invite

Your kin,

But I’m tall —

I’ll lift you

In.

After all,

Without us there,

History won’t be going

Anywhere.

Spin Cycle

Making foam of sky

With kicking feet

And screeching mouths,

Must be the new spin

Of a hit thing

Going around.
