Filling the Blanks


I need just one more blog to fill out the rest of the year
I try to blog twice a week so as not to appear
too boring for those that have and take the time to read
as I scribble away thoughts from my brain hoping they will heed
the words I write are from the heart as twisted as that may be
as I have opinions of which all do not agree
it matters not what others think as this is my special place
where I can write down the words that my thoughts do grace
and so dear reader for those of you who have taken the time
I thank you from my very heart as I scribble out each line.

One of Those Days…

Have you ever had one of those days
when things go wrong in so many ways
no matter what you try to do
nothing goes right and you have no clue
as to what the trouble may be
making it hard to fix that you can see
as there is no pattern what is going wrong
first this then that and nothing belongs
you try something different in the hope it works
but of course it doesn’t and your head hurts
from thinking and worrying to make things go right
and your beginning to think you’ll be at it all night
you followed the instructions just as you should
that something so simple is misunderstood
you try and try with all of your might
hoping like hell to get it right
finally you put it down and admit defeat
and wander off to bed to sleep
but sleep won’t come as you toss and turn
still worrying as thoughts spin and churn
until eventually you slip away
and you’ll worry about it another day.

Common Sense.

I walked around out in the yard
trying so very, very hard
to ignore the heat that I felt out there
and wondered how much I could bear
before I give up and move back inside
or my face and skin will be fried
even though I had carefully rubbed in
sun tan lotion upon my skin
which would keep me from getting a burn
and please my Doctor from whom I had learned
that too much sun is not good for the skin
and makes bad things grow eventually within
as I worked on things needing to be done
I was thinking about the rising sun
and wondered what I could do instead
as obviously I have been misled
into thinking the task I was working on
was something that would not take long
and I could quickly get it done
before the heat from the sun
made me think for a bit
that maybe tomorrow I can fit
this project into my busy day
and get out early if I have my way
I packed up my tools and put them away
this project can keep for another day
I’ll get up early and while it is cool
do the work that is needed as common sense rules.
