A Quiet Chuckle…

Just reread this poem by former Poet Laureate of Queens, NY (2001-2004) and internationally published poet, Hal Sirowitz.

Reusing Words

by Hal Sirowitz

Don’t think you know everything,
Father said, just because you’re good
with words. They aren’t everything.
I try to say the smallest amount possible.
Instead of using them indiscriminately
I try to conserve them. I’m the only one
in this household who recycles them. I
say the same thing over & over again,
like “Who forgot to turn out the lights?
Who forgot to clean up after themselves
in the bathroom?” Since you don’t listen
I never have to think of other things to say.

Another Winter Morning…

(or Not!)

Good Morning Everyone: Just drinking my mug o’ java and planning my day. Part of the plan includes reading. ““Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning can often tell you what kind of day you are going to have.”
Lemony Snicket, The Blank Book (Lemony Snicket is the pen name of American author, Daniel Handler). What are you doing this morning?
