Green Grass on the White Road

Green watercolor paint splashed
On the snowy road ahead.
I stepped on the brake to get a closer look,
Amazed to see the large patch of
Green grass. Emerald vivid.
Yet they were lifeless,
Finely shredded.

Another surprise–
Dismembered little hooves!
Anything else gone, including the container
Which had been enjoyed
The precious meal.

Shredded grass and the little hooves
Danced in my nightmare.
I would turn that sentiment into
A warning flag and plant it
In the careless driver’s conscience.

October Snow on the Juniper

October Snow on the Juniper

For whom October
Dumps lots of snow?
Not for you nor me,
But for the wounded rabbit
Under the juniper that
Needs to be hidden.

I’ve written this poem for children–my first
attempt. Hopefully it can find a publisher like
Cricket.  If not, it is okay, I had fun writing it.
Writers must enjoy what they are writing.
In case no one buys it, nothing is lost. 😊
