The Journey of an athlete

From my days of youth
I've loved to be an athlete
Wrestling to build my body muscles
Playing football to earn an education
I still maintain health in old age

The Sun and Her Friends

    The Sun and Her Friends
    As I wake up in the morning
    My dog friends begin to bark.
    I am busy with my warming.
    It's so cold when it is dark.

    I am your  Queen my dogs
    And my love for you is great.
    Sometimes I don't get through fogs
    And I see you sitting down to wait

Flying Through North America


                                        We are two countries in North America
                                         Here is Canada up North
                                         Below is the USA
                                         We live together in fraternity
                                         As the Earth turns round and round
                                         In the world we are relatively new

                                         In Canada we are a Land of the Free
                                         The USA is our big brother
                                         And we both plan to live
                                         For eternity

The Bird On A Journey

         The Bird On A Journey
     As I move along the hillside
     I think of the past and my first song
     And learning to fly and hide.
     It must be good to do nothing wrong

      There's a lot of good food in the grass
      I especially like to find a worm
                                                                But as a search during the days past
                                                                My rise in the sky is what I yearn

I Am The Fish With Bubbles

       As I move along in my community
       I send a message with my bubbles
       Other fish will talk with mw
       About their swimming troubles.

        Under water we are hard to see
        As we swim our lives together
        It's a really good place to be
        We don;t worry bout the weather
        Sometimes I have found concern
        While swimming in the water
        Earthquakes make the water churn
        It makes me wish I was an Otter.

The Cat At NIght

     Somehow I wanted to go outside.
     Something was moving out there.
     It looked like a mouse trying to hide.
     I thought that I could give it a scare.

      When I got out I saw some plants.
      Something I thought I could eat
      Then I noticed a bunch of ants
       And my interest  got very sweet

A Mouse in the Jungle

                                                The Mouse in the Jungle
                                            I am happy in my nest
                                            Who's ever it is
                                            When I awake after rest
                                             I look and say, "it is what is"

The Birds of Wood

                                                       High there bird friend, who are you?
                                                       I'm lost and don't know what to do.
                                                       It's just about come another day
                                                       And I don't know what to say,

                                                       Wood is something important to me
                                                       And oh how I wish that I could fly.
                                                       There is so much of the world to see
                                                       And we two birds are not so shy

                                                       Perhaps we can have good fun
                                                       As the darkness goes away.
                                                       And we stand here in morning sun
                                                       Then let's lose our fear today.

 The Journey Through My Thoughts

 As I began life of my thoughts,
 They were simple and I was happy
 But as aged I discovered lots of oughts
 This complexity made me crappy

As I began my life of creativity
I began to see the thoughts of others
And what they seemed to think of me
It's very true of my younger brothers

Then through out my education
    I found the land of relativity
                                                                               And with politics across the nation
                                                                                My dear wife means a lot to me.

                                                                                And of course I'm not a saint
                                                                                And I have avoided growing bad
                                                                                I like attention is paid to paint
                                                                                And I try to be good like my dad

A Practice of Mediation

A Practice of Meditation

I breathe deeply and chant as I take my morning walks.
As I meditate I focus on different parts of me.
A while ago when I was riding on my bike
I fell over and hurt my right leg muscles.

Meditating I concentrate with all my heart
On injured leg muscles In the here and now,
 It is helping them to get back to normal
Along with Pain-A-Trate.

While in the house, along with meditating
I love to construct poetry and place it on my blog
And I also like to listen to music from the radio

I will continue to Meditate for all my life

The King In Love

                                                   I live my life with happiness.
                                                   I have both friends and money.
                                                   And of course there's nothing less.
                                                   My great wife who is my honey.

                                                   And I love to make a walk,
                                                   In the day lights of the spring.
                                                   I think about upcoming talk,
                                                   Telling what it's like to be a king.

The mighty King's Struggle

                                                  I don't know what to do I'm lost
                                                  Things should be better from
                                                  The things that money cost
                                                  I want to have my body calm

The bird in the Bush

I'm a little Bird
I love to chirp toward the Sun
When you're up you have heard
I am the little one whose won.

Spring Has Sprung


With my jacket buttoned
Against the wind,
I felt spring’s warmth
Across my face
As she danced for me,
With flowers in her hair.

On shore near North Shore Mountains
I saw her beauty.
And waded in the water.
Now the sun was warm
As spring sang around me.

Walking in the winter and the
Noise of silent trees;
Feeling the cold of winter
I try to be without spring
         Till she returns

[1] This poem was crated in 1972.  I recently found one of my poetry notebooks from that period.

Exercise To Help My Brain

Exercise To Help My brain[1]

I love to exercise by walk or jog each and every day
It boosts rich oxygen blood flow into my brain.
Jogging free, I wave to neighbours along the way
In many days of spring I exercise in rain

My life has always been moving on
Which helps me create brain size
Come on my great brain neurons
And help me be become wiser.

When I was young I used to sport
Wrestling and playing with football actively
I enjoyed exercise of any sort
But it has downsized to a walking me.

  The Eye of Meditation
I look through life one day at a time.
Breathing deeply exploring the world.
Life is in me as I sit and meditate.
As life goes on I continue to learn
Thank you Mr. and Miz Silva.

My Happiness In retirement

My Happiness in Retirement

 I enjoy my freedom from the clock
And now take some time to grocery shop
Sometimes I don’t know what to do.
 Some day I want to visit a zoo.

After many years of modest wealth
All my muscles are in fine health
In a friendly neighborhood,

I have a hobby of carving wood

Reviewing My Life

Reviewing My Life

My greatest satisfaction in helping others cope
Helps me explore the meaning of my life.
This will continue for a long time, I hope
With help from my wonderful loving wife.

I’ve spent  years on a faculty helping others
A few have stayed in touch with me
And, of course there are my younger brothers
Who help me remember that Me is We.

While I have not been spiritual through the years
I have developed a strong use of meditation
I travel through life with very few fears;
Although I don’t believe in reincarnation.

In the mornings when I read the Newspaper things
And turn on the TV to hear what’s going on
I worry about the behavior of us human beings
Because Who Wants To Live Forever is my song

The Chickadee in the Desert

We call alarm when we fly through Heaven
We are often called the magnificant  seven
What do we look like you might ask
We are the little one's  wearing a mask

Now I look at the sunrise far away
And wonder where I'd like to go
While this place is not long to stay
At least it's not full of snow

Increasing My Luck in Life

Increasing My Luck In Life

I keep my eye out for opportunity
And prepare to capitalize on it.
Most likely within my community
Knowing the lottery is full of shit.

I’m taking greater effort to know myself
And increase my level of confidence
As well, I don’t leave my effort on a shelf.
Stay and use your brain; makes sense.

The more I prepare for things,
The more opportunity I see.
And when I get luck my heart sings
And I know more about the show of Glee

So I continue to do what I know
Is an opportunity to increase my chance
And my heartbeat sings way to go
As I feel the urge to get up and dance.
