Two For One Today

Two poems for the price of one today….

FRESH ORANGES

Fresh oranges make you young

 

Like wading a creek in rubber boots

Splashing water like a child, stomping the sand

 

Or hiking a trail with a new friend

Three dogs keeping pace, tails wagging your joy

 

Or no jacket in January

Stepping outside to sun, the widest blue sky

 

Or climbing a tree, wrapping fingers around a

Golden fruit, a gentle tug and it’s mine

 

Juice running down my chin, citrus in my nose

Boxes and boxes of fresh oranges

What could be better?

 

COATIMUNDI ROCK AND ROLL

 

Coatimundis climb ladders and drag race on the roof

Critters in the night clever claws make me contemplate.

Is it one?  Is it two?  Is it a dance under the moon

And the stars?  Scrabbling show-offs won’t let me sleep

Until I turn on the porch light

Then they flee.
