Always there was a distance between them.

Could be living on different coasts, but it wasn’t.

Really it happened even when they were in the same room.

Oh, if they could just figure out a way to cross the gap

Such that all their dreams could come true.

So it was a tragedy when they settled for the next best thing.

Thor (an acrostic poem)

The lightning and thunder are at his command

His hand holding a spinning Mjolnir

Outside he looks like he is as calm as the eye of a hurricane

Reality was the true storm was raging inside

Wish (an acrostic poem)

What would I do if I found a genie in a bottle?

I would ask for three simple things.

Something that would make you smile, something to make you think, and something to give you peace.

Hope by you reading this some of it came true.

Focus on the cornucopia of sweetness in front of you”

Really dude?  It’s like oranges, bananas, and like coconuts.”

Unless you learn to see the totality of sweet vitamins and minerals you will be lost in carbs”

Isn’t that stuff loaded with carbs?  Like, that’s why it’s sweet, dude.”

That may be true.  Can I interest you in a zucchini?”

Stay far away from me with that thing.  You might poke an eye out.”

Eggs (an acrostic poem)

Everyone wants to know who came first

Gonna tell you, I know the true answer.  I wasn’t supposed to say a peep.

Give me a break!  My brain’s not scrambled.  This is no yolk!

So you want to bust my shell? Then I’m not telling you, so keep your nosey beak to yourself!

Chef (an acrostic poem)

Cuisine so fine that that it demanded to be taken out for a dinner date

He showered her with flavors that were tart, sweet, salty, and spicy

Everything balanced to a perfection, a true masterpiece of culinary art

Food may be temporally empheneral, but the memories of that meal will be eternal

Mask (an acrostic poem)

 

May your true self always be hidden from prying eyes

As you go about your daily life

Simplifies things like emotional attachments

Keeping everyone distant and you, safe.

Hurdle (an acrostic poem)

 

How high do we need to jump

Until we finally get over the hump

Realizing true equality for ALL

Determined not to go backwards ever again

Leaving behind the strife, bigotry, and hatred

Embracing a truly brilliant future

Decision (an acrostic poem)

Don’t believe I chose this life

Even though I’ve lived it for over fifty years

Couldn’t really find a single point where

I didn’t coast along life’s eddy currents

So you see, I am a true floater

It might infuriate some of you

Or it might make me your hero

Now that, dear reader, seems to be your…
