(Remembering Winter)

A blizzard blows
outside my door
yet I am peaceful
to  the core
My little house
though not air-tight
will survive
this stormy night
Drink in hand
wrapped in shawls
pen to parchment
raucous scrawls
I'm in the dark
Punished for my
last remark?
Candles are lit
a  subtle light
Something has happened
Nature's slight?
No,,that's too heavy
too surreal
to think Nature cares
about how I feel
So back to writing this little verse
Relaxed and happy
it could be worse

Good as it Gets

It’s as good as it gets
Don’t have fits
So it’s gonna rain
Don’t complain
Sit by the fire
drink champagne

It’s as good as it gets
Let people stare
At love everywhere
See those two kissing
something your missing?
Get out there and find it
Put yourself behind it

It’s as good as it gets
The sun will come out
then we’ll shout
and run about
play in the sand
Life’s so grand

It’s as good as it gets
Dry those tears
Wrap those fears
Shift those gears
Make life dance
Now’s your chance

It’s as good as it gets
Soon one forgets
Just a few lines
Like nursery rhymes
Not to heady
get yourself ready
Cause life’s just fine
Most of the time
It’s as good as it gets
So no regrets
