While listening to you,
her hands are always busy.
She just ate an orange,
which you can tell
by the peelings
she left on the table.
It doesn't matter
where you build your home,
as long as you feel
comfortable and happy in it.
Where Ever It Is Warm
Where ever it is warm,
Bram is on top of it.
So, even when it's burning,
on the antique stove he sits.
He will not burn his belly,
the upper half is for baking bread,
but once he jumped on the other stove
and I won't tell you what he said.
fill the air.
Hidden from the human eye
until one day
they'll fly away
and silence returns again.
Haiku - The Old Toilet House
Packed in by a rose,
the old outdoor toilet house,
new scent takes over.
First Duck Who Got a Speeding Ticket
Some early dawn a duck raced by,
he was in a hurry, but nobody knew why.
He was just doing his normal things,
flying that is, using both his wings.
No one would have noticed the duck,
but this day the duck was out of luck.
He flew in the way of a monitorline,
and became the first duck with a fine.
He surprised the men when they looked
to speedy cars, the radar had booked.
They saw a duck and no car anymore,
who should have flown fifty, not sixtyfour.
In Perfect Harmony I Live My Life
In perfect harmony I live my life,
no clouds on sky that I've seen.
Married to the most darling man,
not ever one row there has been.
My household tight shining clean,
no spiderwebs shown on ceiling.
Laundry folded and put in chests
and with all the trash I'm dealing.
Always paying my bills on time,
food on the table at six o'clock.
Obeydiant children who don't moan
and never found a single sock.
I hear you gasp ahh's and ohh's,
wondering how I manage so fine.
I plead quilty my dear friends,
in this poem I've lied in every line.

Lots of fun, Titia! I especially like the cat on the woodstove. (Wish I could bake bread with mine.) Best of all was the Speeding Canard-- I wonder if they took away his pilots license?
