No blog posts lately. Working on another book of poems. We will keep you posted.
A strong voice that only you can hear.
A soft whisper from one you hold dear.
Parents treasured words still ring in your head.
Friends words that you wish you had said.
A light that leads you down the path you take.
There will always be a tough decision to make.
Some come with more than a little heartache.
Many a night, that call may keep you awake.
Let that little voice always be your guide.
Know with comfort, it’s always by your side.
With your team, when baseball is the sport.
There’s many highs and lows, we can report.
162 games equal a long season.
Not rooting for the home team is treason.
Pop ups drop but a line drive is caught.
Another relief pitcher is always sought.
Leave the pitcher in or when to pinch hit.
It works when each player does his bit.
The second guessing will never stop.
Need another hitter, a bat with some pop.
Who’s hot, who’s not, in the long pennant race
Always determines who finishes in first place.
Chicago weather forecast, a moving target at best.
Always observing the winds coming from the west.
Partly sunny, partly cloudy, what’s the call today?
Can’t you feel the rain clouds moving this way?
Out the window, I see the skies turning grey.
So what does the latest model forecast say?
Which model forecast will be correct?
What does your weather radar detect?
Rain or snow, always a few degrees apart.
Weather forecast, a science that can be an art.
Remember, if you have a schedule to arrange,
Chicago weather is always subject to change.
For the last four years, I have posted this on Memorial Day. If you have those dear to you serving , I hope they are safe. For all those that serve or have served, thank you.
Memorial Day, are there lost friends to fondly remember?
Someone special who was an Armed Forces member.
We honor our lost soldiers with parades and songs,
They journeyed the world to battle evil and wrongs.
Do we value the freedom we have because of those that serve.
They faced foreign elements with courage and nerve.
Sometimes we wonder what will history say,
About the wars and conflicts we fought today.
We cover many a coffin with red, white and blue,
Trying to honor fallen heroes with their due.
We never take for granted the rights and freedoms we enjoy,
Those freedoms are ours, because of many a soldier girl or boy.
I think that I remember when I was trim and fit.
Now my tummy leans over my belt when I sit.
Which dessert to enjoy is now which pill to take.
What does not ache is the question when I awake.
Playing baseball has become watching the game.
The guy from school, don’t you know his name?
That full head of hair is now thinning and grey.
Arthritic knees, Advil to make it through the day.
Hearing and listening are not always the same.
So easy to repeat when I have to take the blame.
As there are always more medical advice to seek.
What physicians do we have to see this week.?
