An Ordinary Day

July
23

There’s a dolphin on my doorstep.
It’s an ordinary day.
He’s delivering the paper
in his ordinary way.

There’s a bison in my bathtub
singing ordinary songs,
and some hippos having ordinary
hippo sing-alongs.

In the pantry there’s a penguin
painting ordinary scenes
of opposums in their ordinary
orange submarines.

There’s an ordinary rhino
racing up and down the stairs,
chasing ordinary chimpanzees
and ordinary bears.

In the living room are llamas
dancing ordinary jigs,
like a dozen rather ordinary
llama whirigigs.

It’s an ordinary day for me;
I promise you it’s true.
And I hope your day is simply
extra ordinary too.

Wet Christmas

July
23

“Is it snowing outside?”
I expectantly cried.
“What’s that sound? Do you know?
Is that Santa I hear?”

“There is nothing outside,”
mother calmly replied.
“It’s not Santa or snow.
No, it’s only rain, dear.”

No Pencil

July
23

No pencil.
No marker.
No paint brush.
No pen.
No nothing
to draw with
or paint with
again.

No blue paint.
No green paint.
No pink paint.
No red.
Mom takes them
away when
I colour
my head.

My Grandpa

July
23

I’ll tell you a bit of my grandpa.
I think he’s a thousand years old.
He must keep his hands in the freezer;
I’ve never felt ice cubes that cold.

The hair growing off of his earlobes
is more than the hair on his head.
His eyes are all baggy and bloodshot.
His nose is the same shade of red.

His voice is like rickety floorboards.
It crackles and groans when he speaks.
Whenever he bends down to hug me
it sounds like his skeleton creaks.

He says that his memory is failing.
He thinks that he’s losing his mind.
He’s always misplacing his glasses;
without them he’s legally blind.

My mom says his hearing is normal.
I kind of believe her, but then
whenever I tell him “I love you,”
he asks me to say it again

I Made a Hat

July
23

I made a hat from fur and felt,
a feather, and a leather belt.
I topped it with a pretty bow
and lots of ribbons, just for show.
I held it up, admiring it,
then tried it on. It wouldn’t fit!
I pushed and pulled with all my might,
the front, the back, the left, the right.
And yet, no matter how I tried
it wouldn’t fit. I nearly cried!
I yanked it off and yelped because
I saw then what the problem was.
I’m such a dolt, I had to frown.
I’d made the darned thing upside down!

I Tried to Ride a Skateboard

July
22

I tried to ride a skateboard.
I fell and scraped my knee.
I tried to ride a bicycle.
I crashed into a tree.

I tried to ride a scooter.
I landed on my chin.
I tried to ride a unicycle;
lost a bit of skin.

I even tried a tricycle
but ran into a wall.
I’m happy in this wheelchair now.
I never fall at all.

Mashed Potatoes on the Ceiling

July
22

Mashed potatoes on the ceiling.
Green beans on the floor.
Stewed tomatoes in the corner.
Squash upon the door.

Pickled peppers in my pocket.
Spinach up my sleeves.
Mushrooms in my underpants with
leeks and lettuce leaves.

Okra, onions, artichokes,
asparagus and beets;
buried neatly underneath the
cushions of our seats.

All the rest I’ve hidden in my socks
and down my shirt.
I’m done with all my vegetables.
I’m ready for dessert!

The Turkey Taquitos are Tasty Today

July
22

The turkey taquitos are tasty today.
The pizza is perfectly fine.
The burgers are better than ever before.
The salads are simply divine.

It’s something that never has happened before,
and something we thought never could.
But somehow a miracle must have occurred;
The hot lunch is actually good.

A Fish in a Spaceship

July
22

A fish in a spaceship is flying through school.
A dinosaur’s dancing on top of a stool.
The library’s loaded with orange baboons,
in purple tuxedos with bows and balloons.

The pigs on the playground are having a race
while pencils parade in their linens and lace.
As camels do cartwheels and elephants fly,
bananas are baking a broccoli pie.

A hundred gorillas are painting the walls,
while robots on rockets careen through the halls.
Tomatoes are teaching in all of the classes.
Or maybe, just maybe, I need some new glasses
