Happy Count Your Buttons Day!

10 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Under a towering green needle pine
Leaving me with just 9

9 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Landing near the white garden gate
Leaving me with just 8

8 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Straight up to blue high heaven
Leaving me with just 7

7 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Bouncing off a stack of red bricks
Leaving me with just 6

6 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Skimming across a golden bee hive
Leaving me with just 5

5 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Skittering across the brown tile floor
Leaving me with just 4

4 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Plunking into my hot black tea
Leaving me with just 3

3 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Right into the ivory loo – ew!
Leaving me with just 2

2 buttons line my new coat
1 popped off *POP* and did float
Up toward the bright yellow sun
Leaving me with just 1

1 button left on my new coat
I button it tight at my throat
Now I’m a Super-hero guy
Time to watch ME fly!

Chill In the Air

Down my legs
and up my arms,
this sensation
truly disarms.

Little bumps
cover my flesh
from the air
dry, cool, and fresh.

Am I sick
or is it mumps?
Then I realize
it's just goosebumps!

I've off visiting colleges for my oldest daughter this weekend. Check out all the amazing poetry happening by visiting this week's Poetry Friday host, Jama at Jama's Alphabet Soup!
