Poem for her 146

Dear Readers,




Green Glasses



The Girl with green glasses sat on her porch
Wondering where he was
He sat in his room trying to get the package open
The Girl was wondering what his reaction would be
When he got the package open
He was totally shocked
That evening
The stars were as bright as they could be
The Glade was dry and flat
Though in a short amount of time the dew would arrive
The pair of them were singing
But the song you'd not know
They had made it themselves
Their song
The brand new telescope
Made everything they looked at
Wonderfully new again


Happy Birthday Babe,

Charles,

Dear Readers,



April Showers


Standing under the rain outside
Standing in the doorway as the rain falls
Standing in the shower in the cabin
Standing there together while pausing on a path
...As the storm drops the leaves near by but
...We don't have an umbrella so get soaked
Standing with huge towels trying to dry off
...before we wade into the house with dripping clothes
Standing at the counter thinking of what we want to buy
...More towels, or just a nicer Umbrella
Standing as we watch the rain fall outside
...Wishing we'd just go and dance in it
Standing in the rain of the April shower
...Then dancing to our own private music
Standing there any month of the year watching rain
Standing there paused between dances in May


Happy Birthday Babe,

Charles.

Poem for her 144

Dear Readers,



Sleeping


The weekend away as one of us is ill
When we have things to do, but don't do them
When we take a nap but one of us wakes the other
The week away as it is full of rainy days
The night through but waking early and drinking hot tea
And going back to sleeping after the star show
Is a mild event that happens but for the waking bits
In each other's arms and being aware that we are
Is what I am wanting to do right now, but goes to
..grab her and get to her to be with me
Is the event of the day when we are finally tired
..and need to be doing it, even if part of us
..say that we could be doing something else
Is fun if you aren't ill or achy it's better while well
Together is how we like to do it
Off to bed now to snooze a while


Happy Birthday Babe,

Charles.

Dear Readers,



Holding Her


Close in a slow dance over the floor
Close when we do the dishes together
Close when she has a headache and I sooth her
Close to me as I write her a love song
Close to me as she sings me our song
Close as she does a chore, every chore we share
Close as I rub her in a long massage
Close in a slow walk down the lanes of time
Close all our years going forward
I will always be holding her close


Happy Birthday Babe,

Charles.

Dear Readers,



Bacon


Fried crisp and eaten like bacon
Or on a sandwich of Tomato and Lettuce
Fried soft barely cooked just done enough
But sliced into bite sized bits
Savored for the fat and the taste
Bacon sliced and not cooked by frying
Dunked into boil watery broth simmered long
Pots of things added and the bacon a flavor
So soft after cooking that it melts in your mouth
Not much chewing required smoothly bacon
There are various kinds of bacon
With several that are name brands that just are
Then there is the saved Bacon greases but only some
Only the best flavored Bacon have grease saved
From fried Crisp to still almost raw they are
Enjoyed by us, and then there are other
Pork fat Bacon like products that might make it
Like Lardo which is just a seasoned cured Bacon Fat
High in Fat low in meat that is just hard to get
So in all this you would wonder why it is in this space
It is because I am a Chef and I like it, but that
She and I grew up loving BLT's And I still make them
For her and for me and I love her and we've been talking
About food and bacon today already and here goes Her


Happy Birthday Babe,


Charles.

Dear Readers,



Orange Creme


The bucket of oranges sat there wondering
Which ones of them would be added to
The mixer and Whipping Cream
The mixer was wondering what the recipe was
The Chef was wondering what the recipe was
The Girl was wondering what it was all going to be
The mixture was done and the glasses filled
Then the Orange Creme Slushie was served
This new recipe might or might have had
Alcohol in it, or other things not listed
As the Recipe isn't one I have made
The thought of it is that I am eating
Something with the Orange Creme flavor
And I want to make it for her
And I want to have something Cold
And creamy and Orange like
And I am thinking of creating things with her
And I have bought more gear for the Picnic basket
And I am just a creative person
And I love her fully
And she is AWESOME


Happy Birthday Babe,

Charles

Dear Readers,




The Dance floor


It looks like a big barn
Then it looks like a small cabin
Then it looks like a living room
It was once just a Hotel room
Though the smallest was the Elevator
Then one day they were seen
Dancing in the park

Over and over and over again
Some place that has them there
They are on the Dance Floor


Happy Birthday Babe,

Charles
