No Wonky Donkey

This dung pie?

Don’t you try.

Ownership

He’ll deny.

He lives here

That is true,

But the poop

Ain’t his do.

He’s a stubborn

Old donkey,

And he’ll blame it

On Wonky.

Till The Cows Come Home

Trudge on home

In the dampness,

Put the hooves

To slush and ice.

Dream of warmth,

Of troughs of oats,

The dry barn filled

With hay so nice.

No Sale

The child gawked at the offers,

Little jaw dropped agape:

Who put Elmo in icing?

Why would anyone want

His best friend to bake?

The boy’s eyes traveled upwards,

Rounded wide at the shelf:

How did Ernie and Bert

End up stuck into cakes?

Can you pull out poor Oscar?

Can Big Bird escape?

This won’t do for my party

I want ice cream instead.

This little light

That shines

This little light

So fine

This little hand

Aglow:

May your wonder

In wonder

Grow.

Spin a wheel to the field

Turn the earth, pull the weeds

Plow a line, plant a seed

Rumble on through sun and wind

Powered by many steeds.

Sufficient Space

Side by side

Close together

They won’t really

Worry whether

There is sufficient

Personal space,

Just scoot a bit

And make a place

So this bed

Can rest another

Weary head.

Choo-Choo

You can captain a boat

Drive a car

Pilot planes,

But there’s nothing quite like

Driving this

Mini-train.

Deep in ocean

She greets you

With palms pressed

In hello,

As you marvel

The glory

Of rocks carved

By time’s flow,

And the riches

Half-hidden

In turquoise waters

Below.

 

Note: “Sawatdi-kah” is the female form (said by females) of Thai greeting, often along with a “Wai” (a slight bow with palms pressed together).

I can play in the tent

I can play with these balls

But to have you play with me

Is what I want most of all!

Rising Rice

Up in mountains

Down valleys

‘Midst small villages

Near towns,

Seedlings

Rise

From the water

Neath bent backs

Patient hands

Toward the sun.
