Lust’s minute devastated

Heart’s forever crushed

23 Apr


Every time I'm on the mound
My heart does a flutter.
Tuning out the crowd's loud sound.
My stomach's churning butter.

Focusing, I look around,
The players are all set.
Catcher's flashing signals out,
Don't like his choices yet.

One finger stands for fast balls.
Two fingers stand for curves.
Batter sneers, to fake me out.
I've got to steel my nerves.

Each ball hurled becomes a strike.
Their dugout starts to hiss.
Scoreboard charts each perfect pitch.
I sure do live for this!

Last batter's set and ready.
It's a swing and a miss.
Got that player out of there.
Pitchers dream of doing this!

I owned it, I pulled it off.
It was a perfect day.
I will always hit the mound,
In search of Special 'K'!

Warning – This is a gross poem!


I'm not going to that place,
You cannot make me go.
There's really nothing to it.
I only scraped my toe.

You certainly are going.
Get in the car right now.
If you don't get looked at,
Your dad will have a cow!

Hospital, Smospital,
There's no way I will go.
That place always scares me.
The nail just cut my toe.

Oh no, you must be kidding!
It was a nail you say?
I must call the hospital,
To say we're on our way!

You're acting crazy Mamma,
Please don't make a fuss.
It doesn't even hurt me.
There isn't too much pus.

I think I just might faint!
Ooh, I'm feeling sick!
Wrap a towel around your foot.
Get in the car, be quick. Okay, okay, I'm going! My foot's begun to twitch. You know, I think you're right Mom. I just might need a stitch.

#NaPoWriMo – Day 21 – STEM #Haiku

21 Apr

In honor of National Poetry Month, Anastasia Suen’s blog STEM Friday challenged folks to write a STEM haiku. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering or Math.

Here’s an edited version of the technology haiku that I posted:

iPhone lost its bars
Intermittent Internet
All books keep their charge

#NaPoWriMo – Day 20 – Pig – #Haiku

20 Apr

Whoopee, I am so excited! I won a PIG HAIKU CONTEST this week, and will be receiving a copy of Bridget Zinn’s POISON over at children’s book author and editor, Tamson Weston Books.

Ms. Weston offers a wide range of services for authors, illustrators, agents and publishers, so please be sure to check out her site.

I’ve been writing a poem a day for National Poetry Writing Month, but this little piece is one of my favorites…


She awaits her slop

Grunts, wiggling her pink round self

Crinkled snout kisses

Thanks Tamson, and congratulations Carter and Barb! :0)
