thanks to everyone for joining in with the first joint poetry effort. here’s what we got:

(i’m calling it “a day in the comfortable life”

expectations high, i profer a line

stretching strong in the sun, restday overalls dripping

water, ocean, sea, and the gray sky

over dog toys i couldn’t help tripping

With a basket of laundry tucked under one arm

the strong smell of fresh tuna in the breeze

I gathered my thoughts and stumbled toward the clothesline

I figure it couldn’t do any harm

to hang the well worn quilt in the bright sunshine

to enjoy a nice, thundering sneeze.

japanese beetles, shining teal and blue

gypsy moth catapillars and their fuzzy white hue

a blue butterfly flitted gently by my face

In the distance the faint sound of a can opener

some days life is gentle, some days it’s a race

as the lid slides softly from the tin of Miss Mew

I wash my fur with paws of grace

And quickly giggle and skitter for my stew

content with my feast, I find my patch of sun

the quilt dry and warm, lays folded in the chair
