Poised for tomorrow
There she stands
Just starting her journey
All dressed up in her flowered dress
and pretty pink hat
Looking forward to the future.
There are shadows on her path -
dark things which obscure
the brightness of her being
But she can see ahead
there just at the curve
the path is bright and clear
unobscured - ready for her
ready for her as she starts out
her world is getting broader
brighter, less limited
for her and her sisters
all of them
Poised for the future
ready for what tomorrow will bring
embracing the full rich life
that awaits her.

being brewed in the automatic pot...
A delicious aroma permeates the atmosphere...
I luxuriate in knowing I do not have to be anywhere today.
Eventually I get up from my chair (where I have slept) and stumble to the kitchen, Carafe and cup in hand..
I turned on the computer and as I go it tells me I have mail...
Turns out to be mostly spam but there are a couple of conversations
that need completion from the night before.
The dog gets let out and comes right back in (it is starting to be cold outside)
I bring the coffee back to the chair and pick up the lap top.
Must check with my peeps.
another day, jumpstarted.
I love being retired.

The "boys" are out back checking
to see if the yard is still there.
Peeing in the grass
The big puppy wants to play
the older dog not so much
He is somewhat senile and arthritic
sort of like me
15 years for him is 105 you know
A whisper bumps up against my leg
Kitty cat wants me to recognize that she
also is awake.
The older dog comes in he has had enough play.
now he has to check out the house to see if IT is
still there. Have breakfast and take the first of his
Puppy stays out to play
Yep just another Monday.

There is a damn little fly in my house
(worse than a mouse)
He likes to buzz around and land on me
It is driving me nuts.
Not only that but the dog is whining to go out
(twenty five times a day)
That is probably how the damn little fly got in
when I opened the door for my senile dog.
I really shouldn’t complain
He is not the biting kind that harassed me
on past vacations at the lake
I have misquotes for that thank you
(they got me last night and I spent the whole
But he is annoying
this damn little fly
And besides landing on my skin and walking around
he is too fast for me
Flies away before I can swat him.
Don't worry I will get him
or perhaps he will leave when I let the dog out againDamn little (annoying) fly.
