Summertime

Dory boats bob near ocean’s shore, tethered as goats grazing side by side except these are wooden hulls waiting for tomorrow’s fishing orders now silent as bats in evening’s warm breath. The sun’s last rays provide colourful shades, it’s goodnight-time for friends made today. © 2016 Richard L. Provencher


Little Tyke

I took her hand as kindness showed through my intentions, she needed love the touch of a mother’s hand laying one upon hers. I did so, and Jesus smiled. © 2016 Richard L. Provencher


Pleione star

Pleione star, brightly shine but do not burn. Hands away, the sun burns hot. Its heat you learn. Pleione, prouder be your flames in outer space. With grace you speak a life that lives on modest pace. Youngest eyes below your sparks surpass the sky. This pride I own be yours, dear star, beloved eye.Display


Grafting Eternity onto Love

Our bond, as strong as leather, loyal, as sound as a bell, if we now stick together we sure won’t go to hell. By being kind forever we’ll break whatever spell. We won’t be parting, never. Our strength, no one could tell. If we just stick together, our hearts warm cell by cell. In servingDisplay

When I first met your mother

My little son, my little girl, when I first met your mother, she sat in her work room. There came no sound of other men wanting her to bloom. When I first met your mother love wasn’t there at first. It took my heart another two months, in tears I’d burst. Too shy I turnedDisplay


Life

Seasons

Seasons The gentle egg’s shell breaks open, The chick inside is free, The daffodils lie bright and sunny, Dainty as can be. The boiling sun shines down strongly, The butterflies flit by, The green grasshoppers chirrup loudly, White clouds drift by in a summer sky. The crispy leaf floats to the ground, Golds and rustenDisplay


My Face

MY FACE I draw two eyes with my sharp pencil. They can see through the window. Even help me count fingers and toes. “TEN!” They watch you all day. Next I draw a rose that smells a fluffy rose. Here comes my dog with wet fur. “PHEW!” Your baking from the kitchen curls like chimney smoke.Display
