Super Saturday: Plan is to pick something new that is Super each day



After what seems like eons of busy Saturdays - translate that to Saturdays filled with classes, games, et al for the kids - we have finally achieved a weekend that actually begins on Friday evenings. Granted, we still have something for an hour Saturday morning, but compared to a busy Friday evening and Saturdays filled with a cluster of classes and games, this is Super! a truly Super Saturday :)

 seven days seems a short week!

 

For dVerse Poetics, Brian has us addressing issues we are passionate about through the eyes of the pumpkin...


My friend, the scarecrow
There he stood
All tattered and torn
Grinning sadly at me
I wondered why
Was a hot day
Throat parched
Aah! I feel drops…of water??
Yikes! This burns…
Not a cooling shower this..

Hack! Hack! What is this yucky black stuff?
Can’t see a thing..
Throat is dry all over again..

My roots tell me a sad story too
The water that reaches them is full of goo
(well, if it was only poo
Then that it would be cool!)
But this is horrible, terrible, scary –
like something out of a flue..

Eating away at their earthly home
By spray, exhaust, and factories too
A spray that makes me grow fast and insect-free

Then poke a grin into me
Come Hallow’s eve
