Rain Soaked Walk

Yikes a meeting across campus
and its pouring with rain
If the coffee was not so good
I would abstain

Wish me well
as I storm the weather
or the weather
storms me.

Team Meeting

Clustered around the plotter printer
We meet
The Monday Morning ritual
Post weekend torpor

An unlikely fellowship
a meeting of the minds
of opinions
and deliverables
shared and digested

In the knowledge that
$0 hours
must pass
Til we meet again.

If Poems were Bonds I'd be Rich

If poems were bonds
I'd be rich
No more work for me

If poems were bonds
I'd write
and cash them in

If poems were bonds
I'd write more poems
And live the dreamers

But alas
Poems are poems
legal tender only
with other poets
But not with banks
or bourses

And that my friend is why poets are not usually rich, in monetary terms, but rich in life experience and expression.

Keep well

Why is Business a Forbidden Poetry Subject?

Many of us, poets included, spend our daily life working in or running businesses yet there is a paucity of poems around this important subject area. Love, marriage, money, animals, family, travel and scenery are all used in poems but humble business is neglected.

So here is another business poem entitled Late Night at the Office

I'm here again
working late at the office
The rain falls noisily on the roof
while the cadences of my typing
Fill the empty air.

So much for work life balance
More like work and more work imbalance..oops
Nearly fell off
my hobby horse
A business related accident.

Still, and stillness, late at night
Have their benefits
I can think more clearly about
Love, marriage, money, animals,
Family, travel and scenery.

Right I'm out of here,
Home, hearth and books
are beckoning

Have a great day/night/morning/afternoon (delete non applicable items)
