Cats don’t care what dogs think,they just look down and sort a wink.perch themselves way up high,the dog barks and starts to cry.it’s really not fair,those agile cats,hiding in places,just like rats.the dog wants to play,join in the fun,chase that cat,make it run.but cats careless,don’t need to play fair,like to tease,don’t have a care. Poor dog sits and wonders why?sly old cat naps with a sigh.dogs keep guard,waiting for a twitch,cat doesn’t move,not even for an itch.the game goes on,cat unaware,the dog just pleads,please care…YOUR dog is part retriever,that’s what the breeder told me. I am not sure she realized,which dog she really sold me.he will not ever fetch a Frisbee, ball or stick.and it would be a stretch to call catching winks a trick.is the breeder a deceiver?is my dog a low achiever?she told me part retriever. I am not sure I believe her…If I Were A Giant..if I were a giant I wonder if I could stand on my tiptoes and paint the sky. I’d fashion paintbrushes from branches of trees,and paint all the clouds as they float on the breeze. I’d wake up quite early when morning was new and paint all the daisies with pollen and dew. I’d blend all the colours from desert to dray,and mix up a sunrise to splash on the sky. I’s stride to the mountains and gather the snow to paint snow-white blossoms where blossoms should grow. I’d dip my tree brush in the yellow corn…and I’d paint golden beaches by waving my hand. I’d grind autumn leaves,some pink ones,some red,and cover the sun as she set off to bed. I’d hunt all the shadows that hide from light and dip them in pen ink and blacken the night. i can dream i am a giant from the books on my shelf,but I know when I wake nature’s painted herself.

An Old Man
There once was an old man from peru,his poor llamas came down with the flu,in the valley he passed,all the people who gasped,at the beast that was uttering moo.

Bits Of Paper
Bits of paper,bits of paper,lying on floor,lying on the floor,make the place untidy,make the place untidy,pick them up,pick them up.
Once there was a fairy,who was very nice,and also very wise.she always helped everyone,including the poor and needy,and everyone’s heart she won.when she went to heaven,every wondered,when she would come back.listening to this she started,her things to pack,then she came back,she brought for all.delicious cakes and food,to none she was rude,then she turned into little red riding hood.

Creative,Shy,Inventive And Intelligent
Creative,shy,inventive and intelligent,brother of a silly sister,lover of animals,friends and the beach,who feels happy,sad and funny,who needs animals,family and friends.who fear nightmare,deep water and scary movies,who would like to see the rainforest,a luna moth and tropical butterflies.
On the floor lies tiny teddy,half a paw is gone already.he is tattered,torn,and lame.yet i love him just the same.
Look we both know i did it…but who would convict a face like this?
