My Own Stage

Great Pershing Balloon Derby Joe Deshon Photographer

Some people bike, others swim
Dad runs miles at the gym
I’ve seen Aunt Sara's yoga--
Downward Facing Dog,
And Uncle Walt cuts firewood, log after log,
I would like to get up and take to my feet,
To dance wild and crazy right my down my street,
but I can close my eyes
and move like clouds through the skies,
                                                                                  even  though I'm still here at this page
                                                                                  I am free and dancing on my own secret stage.

It All Began With the Letter A

I Like the Letter A

I like dada and Lady Gaga.
I like fish with fresh alfalfa.
I like to sing: Mi, fa , so, la.
And I like your nose, Mr. Rosa.
I like to dream the Cat's Eye Nebula.
I like both my fibula.
I like a little song
from a concertina.
I like chewy cheese,
especially Fontina.
