Permanent Reminder

tattoo
a permanent reminder
of a night best forgotten


Dear Reader,
As of September 2014, I have changed the format of my blog. Instead of a poem-a-day, I will now post twice a week, on Tuesday and Friday. By posting twice a week, I am allowing myself more of an opportunity to publish my poetry in publications that classify poems appearing on personal blogs as "previously published". If you haven't already done so, please enter your email address at the right so you can receive Wee Words in your inbox twice a week. And remember, PLEASE COMMENT if any poem strikes your fancy.
Thank you,
Bridget Magee

Mama's Definition of Labor Day

In honor of Monday's holiday, here is another perspective on Labor Day -
it is not always celebrated in September. :o)

Forty-two weeks,
ready to go.
Off to the hospital
for baby to show.

Contractions increase,
"Breathe 1-2-3!"
Can't get comfy,
do what with my knees?

Finally Doc says,
"Give a big push!"
Out comes baby,
head, belly and tush.

There's My Family

There's my puppy
laying on the floor,
sleeping, snuggling
that dog can snore.

There's my sister
talking on her phone,
yada-yada, blah-blah-blah
super loud ringtone.

There's my mom
coming in from a run,
red faced, panting
sweating a ton.

There's my dad
coming home from work,
mumbling, grumbling
his boss is a jerk.

Secret to Long Hair

If I leave it alone
my hair grows, grows, grows.
Then down my back
my hair flows, flows, flows.
