One cannot head to pasture

On a fine, chilly morn

Without checking to see if

One’s mane’s properly adorned.

You can captain a boat

Drive a car

Pilot planes,

But there’s nothing quite like

Driving this

Mini-train.

Ducky Reflections

Is the duck in the water?

Is the duck in the sky?

Is she swimming to perch

On a roof dunked nearby?

Did the house lean to water

Does the mud, garden make?

Are my eyes seeing mirrors

Is my mind still awake?

Blue Ghost

A blue ghost

Found its way

To the front

Of this porch.

‘Fraid of heights

It clings tight

To the spout

And flower pots.

If your party is pure happy

And your Mama’s talents

Flow,

There is nothing like a minion

To give your day a mighty

Go.

Pink Elephant

There’s a very pink

Elephant on the sidewalk

With nail polish

Half done.

Children stare

Babies point

But many others walk on.

As in many a living room

Where elephants silently stand,

Perhaps New York City adults

Aren’t easily stunned.

Not So Hidden

Grandpa you can’t

See me hidden

In my batman cave,

But try to find me:

There’s a world

To save.

Keen Aubergine!

There’s no mistaking

Intelligence

In this aubergine

If only for how

Its spectacles

Intervene

In order to prevent it

From becoming

Cuisine.
