I’ve had a wonderful week off this week.
A little bit of sleeping,
a little bit of reading,

Just a stretch of time
to relax and be.

This is not really a poem. I just made it look like one. Last night, my husband and I drove to Breaux Bridge to hear the Nouveau String Band. Oh, this group is so much fun.

I’m Possible

I’m on the edge of possible
with two steps to the right
Two to the left
Toe tap and spin.

enough swing
to make my world sing.

You do, too!
