Waiting for Donít Know


Caffeine headache tugging at my eyebrows

the sky still dark when only a few days ago it would have been light

at the same time

littlest cat molded into my arm

even though she knows the RULE about not getting up when I am writing

Iím just giving her (and myself) a break but sheíll probably just take advantage

scheduled surgery fallen into place

I had hoped something would come up to prevent it but that was not to be

so now I  soon will be the recipient of a new breast

courtesy of my stomach

look out everybody, on New Yearís  Eve

Iíll make your eyes goggle at my new cleavage


And summer has already faded into a slurred memory

it all happened while I was editing

but thatís okay

I have any number of previous summers to remember instead

little apples on the tree in the front yard

are no longer the size of chestnuts and nearly resemble the real thing

itís almost time to put the garden to bed, even though

I never got around to waking it up in the first place

rose bush grows undisciplined  and along with weeds

stray cultured lily gives it all a pretense of respectability

a loose cavity reminds me I need to make a dreaded call to the dentist

laundry still piled up, waiting to be done

And Iím waiting for Donít Know.

Reflective thoughts on daily affairs with a nostalgic reminiscing of the colorful SEASONS through a mellifluous voice that talks to the soul.

Let Your quills dance, Poet!

Life can be tedious, and life can be hard Janet, but as my beloved Mum used to say " Its a great life, if you don't weaken....and the secret is never to weaken ! "
