Everywhere’s Lights

A friend calls late, her daughter

rushing to an Emergency room, my friend

needing a ride to Minerva to pick up the

car at her husband’s work place, and we

drive her, and on the way are blessed with an

absolutely gorgeous, fiery, electric sunset

colors flying everywhere, filling the sky, and

exciting lightning bugs flash their white

lights everywhere , from every field and grassy

space, then on our way back an unexpected

fantastic display of colorful fireworks fly over

the skies in Kensington, flashing, falling into

all the senses on not just another

usual Monday evening in eastern Ohio

Aliens Really Exist

Watching War of the Worlds

fighting aliens with Tom Cruise

Not even aware that

beneath our own house

sinister tentacles burrow stealthily

Just as an alien pulls Tom

up into its evil grasp

my husband shouts from

the bathroom

“The tub is flooded and

the toilet’s overflowing!”

Scramble to stop the double deluge

movie and aliens forgotten

Water came from the dishwasher!

Call the plumber, who

after using the Snake

destroyed the alien

limbs that had taken over

our pipes

Evil extraterrestrials called Elms

from the planet Earth!
