I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Pockets
Pockets

I love my pockets, they keep many things for me

Sometimes I hide stuff in them when I pick up anything I see

My pocket is my pal, it’s better than my bag

Because in it I can carry my pet frog

My pocket knows all my secrets I write on pieces of paper

It held for me an entire week the donut from the baker

My mommy says one of my pockets was filled with gum

But all I did was ate half and offered my pocket some


I have different color pockets

Some black, some white, some brown and some blue

I have pockets that are very old and pockets very new

I have pockets to the side and pockets to the back

I have pockets on my jeans and my jacket top

I have pockets that are torn, but I feel sad for them

But then my mommy works her magic and makes them good again


Whenever grandpa gives me coins I put them in my pocket and lets them jingle

All my pockets are in pairs, I don’t like when they are single

I stick my hands in my pockets and it makes them warm

My pockets are like a wonderful charm

Thank you pocket, you are always good

You are always near me, just like you should.

      Very fun. You do delight with words.

      My hiking shorts have eleven pockets. And my Guayabera Shirt shirt has four.

      My bad was chocolate candy bars in my pockets to wash.

      True story: Bev buys clothes depending on the number of pockets they have. LOL I have to share this with her.
