But anyway ~
Hello! Today is a wonderful day, isn't it? Well, I think so, but that's because (drum roll, please) 1.) there's no snow and ice in the forecast today, 2.) I've had the pleasure of reading a number of really great poems already today and...3.) today is my birthday!
I think I'll celebrate by posting some poems. Okay...I do that pretty much every day, but still...
First, for the 4th day of the Haiku-a-Thon, I'm using the artwork prompt thoughtfully provided by SIS/Few Miles.
let’s trail Old Burro
down the red clay path to home
he will know the way
Second, Big Tent Poetry, being equally thoughtful, provided a Wordle (a collection of words culled from another source) for today's winsome poeming. Out of the twelve words shown for this Wordle, I chose five and wrote a triple limerick.

Danger ~ Woodwork Alert
There once was a cabinet maker
who was more of a cabinet faker.
He attempted to build
but he wasn’t too skilled
so his chests looked just like hell’s half acre.
He could never remember which blade
he should use on the lathe when he made
his doorknobs and handles -
it looked more like vandals
had been in his shop on a raid.
He said, “It’s a matter of function,
with woodworking,” but in conjunction
with each new disaster
he called for the pastor
for sacrament of extreme unction.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day, too.
