Being Alive

The daily surprise of being alive keeps

me on my toes for who knows the

idiosyncrasies that may be still asleep

waiting to keep a rendezvous with you

    know who.


I had an aunt that swore on a bible

That when she was fully asleep she

was not counting sheep, but putting

new time in a little bank that never,

               never shrank!


Bless her, she left us last November

Just in time for us to remember the

Little doilies she used to embroider

As special gifts for enemies and friends

                 To make amends!
