Who Am I?

I am breakfast
while on the go,
sometimes referred to
as Vitamin O.

Despite my hole
I do not leak,
through my middle
you can peek.

I'm eaten plain
or drizzled with icing.
Either way
I'm quite enticing.

Topped with sprinkles
or chopped nuts,
I've been known
to cause big butts.

Who am I?

Pond•ering Haiku

lily pads float
umbrellas
for the fish

fish study
the muck
homework

fish exhale
the ripples echo
their sighs


Enjoy more poetry at Reading to the Core.

Back To School Bake

As the temperatures rise,
my IQ drops.
In my hot classroom,
it feels like time stops.

Fans are whirring,
teacher's voice I can't hear.
Why do we start school
in the hottest month of the year?

Politically Correct

Trump's voice
bully horn

Trump's rhetoric
hot air

Trump's diplomacy
intimidator

Trump's strategy
wall building

Trump's popularity
puzzling

Shoe Shock

Palo Verde Beetle

Time to shop,
here are my shoes
I put them on
then I cruise.

What do I feel
tickling my toe?
Fingerlike antenna,
no, No, NO!

Out of my shoe
comes a horned head,
a spiked thorax
and wings spread.

From under the tongue
a beetle flies.
I scream, I run,
I cry, Cry, CRY!

After I'm calm
I go to the shops,
but now I wear
airy flip-flops.
