Chase Away My Troubles

20140314-132913.jpg
The sound of
Children’s
Delightful
Screaming,

The soulful
Songs of
Happiness
And mirth,

Evokes,
Childhood
Memories,

Running,
Tagging-
Without
Care or dismay;

Are the simple
Pleasures of
Happy play.

Nothing seems
To stand
In their
Way .

Sing children,
aloud.

Let your
Laughter
Drown out my
Troubles—

Like the sun
Penetrates
The darkest
Clouds,

I need
Your
Songs to
Wipe away my
Fears,

And chase
Away
My sorrows.

A Cutie On Robert Frost

20130413-141929.jpg

Hannah tosses salted peanuts

across the patio table on

a California spring day,

smiling, coquettish and gay.

The warmth of the sun’s

penetrating rays

Like fingers massages

stress away. Reading Frost’s

poetry in between eating

orange Cutie’s, underneath

our green patio shade.

What a beautiful clear

and perfect day. The sound

of children happy at play.

lyrical music of life,

I give you this song-

the music of life by the Bay!
