Poems/Short Stories

Here you will find pieces I snipped from some of my completed poems and short stories. Just a sliver for now to wet your ageless brow except for the Frog Eyes poem, which is complete.



Frog Eyes 


There once was a frog

that had four eyes

he saw in front of himself and behind


His name of Four Eyes

was no surprise

the two-eyed frogs were unkind


He met someone

who showed him fun

she was a she

told him by one


He never saw the same four eyes

upon a frog, nor mate, no lie


A friend they became

they felt the same

together they were eight, oh my.


A Sloth is a Sloth 


I'm so tired

Let's go to bed

To himself he said

It's time to refresh 

My weary head



A Birthday Invention


Grandpa's eyes twinkled as he gazed at the invention from Billy. Billy was eight. Grandpa was very proud of his grandson. Billy disassembled leftover scraps of discarded materials from the household and turned them into something useful. He once made a napkin holder for his mom, and a wooden box with a lid that he painted and decorated with stickers and emblems to store the things he treasured which he kept under his bed. Billy walked forward and put his gift into Grandpa's hands. "Billy, you are a true inventor. How did you ever make such a wonderful cane?"
