Protein Drink

Took a nice long swig of water from my glass


While replacing it on the stand

noticed something small and dark

swirling in the bottom

Took a closer look


had the Husband look

Sure enough, a bug

a little lady bug in my water

I’d almost had protein with my refreshing swig

I love spring


Summer is Lost

(We drove through Liberal, Kansas today and noticed this scene)

Fresh, delicious, inviting water

flows freely throughout the many

rides in the large water park

No youthful splashing, jumping, laughing, running

even with the sun scorching through the heavy, humid air

on the sizzling August summer day

Oh, wait!

Summer has ended—school just began
