ORANGE

No matter
How you
Twist, turn
Arrange words.

Nothing
Rhymes
With
Orange.

It
Is
Not a boring color
Still.

Nothing
Rhymes
With
Orange.

It may
Look good
In a swatch or collage
Still.

Nothing
Rhymes
With
Orange.

The car
In your garage
May be it’s color
Still.

Nothing
Rhymes
With
Orange.

At home
Beside the range
There is a bowl of fruit
Shoot.

Nothing
Rhymes
With
Orange.

Isn’t it strange
A barrage of other words
Fit together and chime
Still.

Nothing
Rhymes
With
Orange.

EYE CUE

Having the right
To remain silent
Is a golden opportunity.

When showing feelings
Unspokenly understood
The look is the eye cue.

When pleasing in sight
A wink
Is the eye cue.

When fluttering
An eye lashing
Is the eye cue.

When in pride, walking a lifetime through
Tears are sometimes
The eye cue.

What
Is
Your eye cue?

HOLLY WOULD

Betty
Because of Barney
Couldn’t love you
The way you deserved.

Wilma
Because of Fred
Knew she shouldn’t love you
The way you deserved.

Sally
Because of Linus
Didn’t love you
The way you deserved.

But
You alway knew
For all time
Holly would.

CARAT TOPPED

The first meeting
Awkward
And
Shy.

The first date
Pure
And
Innocent.

The courtship
Unrushed
And
Old-fashioned.

The engagement
Filled with declarations
And
Promise.

The marriage
Shoes and rice time
Forever
Carat topped.

THEODORE

In a department store window
Button eyes were sad and lonely
Arms outstretched, waiting to be embraced.

I knew you needed a loving home
My companion search ended
Your price didn’t matter.

Safety I feel in your arms at night
Darkness is not as frightening
Knowing you are there.

You are in my thoughts
How does one forget you?
My teddy bear.

Bachelor buttons
Have adorned
Beaus
Lapels.

Button noses

Beaus
Under the mistletoe.

Below beaus
Sweet nothings.

Oh, the memory
Of
Buttons and beaus.
