Martin's Words

Martin's words were...

Martin used his words...
to communicate
to challenge
to change

Martin's words...
altered thinking
adjusted attitudes
amended laws

I appreciate Martin's words...
...and I appreciate Irene Latham at Live Your Poem, our host for Poetry Friday.

Recipe for a Realistic Resolution

1 cup goal
a dollop of optimism
a dusting of humor
a pinch of courage
​a heaping spoonful of resolve
and as much chocolate as necessary
Mix all together,
simmer on low.
Take baby steps -
remember, go slow.
If you falter
and​ things boil over,
just recommit
and start over.
When others doubt
with their audacity,
focus on your goal -
keep your tenacity.
Serves: yourself.  Enjoy!

Who Am I?

I saunter near
rabbits scat.
I’m rather small
for a wild cat.

Have you noticed
my shortened tail?
Better for prowling
the desert trail.

About my name,
I am a snob.
I’ll only answer
if you call me, Bob.

Who am I?

I am a bobcat.
