Daily Ditty #58 - Blizzard, Schmizzard

A Mickey Mouse snowstorm. Thanks to Erika Amato for the title inspiration.

Blizzard, Schmizzard

So said Eddie Izzard

Blizzard, Schmizzard

So said NYC

Missed my night out

Cause they feared a white out

Gosh oh gee oh –

What emergency?

 

Mr. De B. – he is now my subway clown

Bet that he’s sad he shut the subway down.

 

Blizzard, Schmizzard

Fire that Weather Wizard

Blizzard, Schmizzard

How embarrassing

Daily Ditty #49 - Full House (Sleepover) - or Floodlight of Love

A Sunday morning reflection.

FULL HOUSE (SLEEPOVER)

To have a homeful of teenage boys

Giggling and guffawing

Is one of those motherly joys

I have never known.


What do they talk about?

Nothing my son will tell me.

I am content tonight to walk about

Inconspicuously, bringing more food.


In the morning, I find they have left the lights on

And dirty Kleenex everywhere.

And I’m pretty sure my son didn’t brush his teeth.

But it’s a full house and I don’t care.


They say you should shine a light

On the aspects you want to see more of.

A boy who trusts we won’t embarrass him,

Trusts we won’t pry and poke,

Won’t try to understand every joke.

A boy who likes to come home

And bring his friends home, too.

On this I shine

A floodlight of love.
