PAD 17 Dance

Do Over

If I could do it all again,
I’d dance more
and not worry about
looking so proper.
Sometimes joy
flows from the feet.

PAD 17 Dance

Dancing with the Stars

On a Caribbean cruise,
my daughter and I
danced with the stars.

We looked like two
of the three stooges,
but we had fun.

We had our picture taken
with Florence Henderson
before her star went out.

PAD 16 Blank System

Religious System

Religion is a systematic way
to approach God
like a vending machine.
You put the change in and hope
for the blessings to pop out.

Christianity is an adoption
into a wonderful family
that brings change and blessing.

PAD 16 blank system

Security System

My daughter has a security system
that makes me feel insecure.
I never can remember the number
or what buttons to push
and I don’t know if I can leave the house
without setting off the alarm
fetching and annoying police
and costing an extra fifty.

PAD 16 blank system

System

S o you have a routine, So
Y ou have a procedure
S o you have a logic you can’t shake. Your
T echnique of living gets old. You
E xpect more in a day, but practice makes perfect. There is a
M ethod to this madness. Having a system makes sense.

PAD 15 One Time


One Time

One time
you slipped
a ring
on my finger
and I said
I will.

Once is enough.

PAD 15 One Time


One Time

Jesus sat
at the right hand
of the Father.

Now believers
sit with Him
in heavenly places.

And the Father
listens
with attentive ears.
