El Capitan

El Capitan's almost three thousand
Vertical feet of granite rock
I stand on the ledge and gaze
High above the valley
Ultimate challenge
Scaling the wall
Rock climbing

Very Costly

What is the opposite of free?
A credit card and a shopping spree
Wrapping my car around a tree
Buying a house and losing the key

savoring every bite
I must make some chocolate pudding

A Fish Wish

 A man that I know caught some fish
He cooked and served up a dish
His wife gave a sigh
“Could you remove its eye?”
And he said, “I will do as you wish.”

Fish and  chips and peas
Scones and English tea
Come to London with me
For a small fee.

My View of St. Paul's Cathedral

St. Paul's Cathedral
Climbing very many stairs
Could not reach the top.
Thirty minutes till closing
Is not enough time to see.

Bad Luck

Don't walk under a ladder.
Don't spill the salt.
Don't break a mirror.
Don't open an umbrella in the house.
Don't sing at the table.
Don't sleep at the table.
Don't bring home a goldfish.
Don't chase someone with a broom...
Especially on Friday the thirteenth.

Drive Through Order

Welcome to Sally’s
May I take your order now?
I want a burger.
She wants a vanilla shake.
He wants a root beer.

A Used Spaceship Salesman...or something

There once was an alien from Mars
Who set out to look at the stars
He got much too close
His ship burned like toast
Now he’s on Neptune selling cars.

Fourth of July

The fireworks burst

Red, white, and blue stars and stripes

Decorate the streets.

A parade down our Main Street

It is Independence Day!

A Frozen Disaster

Betty and Bryce went out on the ice
Wearing some brand new skates.
The ice was thin and they fell in
Coming home frozen and late.

Summer Haiku

I lie in the grass
I eat a fresh, crisp apple
It is green and sour.
