Day 30-Color poem

Yellow is the sun
Like a downy new duckling
Like happiness personified 
As soul lightening as the Savior

Day 29

Poetweet


The Utah Jazz lost the game last night/ Only one more game to go/We'd love to see them win the last/At least we pray that it's so/Go Jazz Go

Random Thoughts

Day 28-Random Thoughts


The community newspaper, the Magna Times

Sits near me as I contemplate its stories

One is extolling the virtues of small papers

Community newspapers are showing growth

While the larger dailies are in decline

Even Fox 13's Good Day Utah has a segment 

Devoted to stories from local newspapers 

I for one, do not want to see this stop

Stories of our neighbors are a window

Into everyday life all around us

Day 28-Clerihew

We have a brother who's name is Jamie
The youngest leaf on our Family Tree
But when we were little, he was confused
So Gicki and de udder Gicki were what he used

Day 27

Poem in Your Pocket Day


Take some time on this very special day

To find a favorite poem for a fun holiday

It may be one that makes you laugh or smile

Or even one that makes you think a while


It can be one you've written yourself

Or one you find upon a Library shelf

Just keep it with you throughout the day

Then share with those who come your way.

Day 26

Day 26-Senses Poem

Dark clouds overhead
Rain touching the ground
Patter of raindrops on my umbrella 
Wind blowing my hair
Moisture in the air
Love a good Spring rainstorm

Day 25

Day 25-Acrostic Poem


Grandchildren


Goodness for your heart

Romping in your house

Asking you millions of questions

Never afraid of a mouse

Doesn't hold back love

Couldn't if they tried

Heaven's gift from above

Inching up to my height

Loves to sit on laps

Dreams of what to be

Reaches arms up for hugs

Ever gives you kisses

Now and forever more

Day 24

Day 24-Nonet poem

As this Monday gets off to a start
I have to keep thinking of things
To write and excite myself
And others around me
So a Nonet comes 
Out of my mind
And my heart
And my
Love
