Wishing you all a very Happy New Year. May you have good health and create many good memories with family and friends.

Big game tomorrow as my Iowa Hawkeyes take on Kentucky in the Citrus Bowl. An hour after the start of the game, Iowa State takes on Baylor in basketball. Both two 10 teams in the USA.

I wrote this poem in 2015, seems fitting.

Best wishes from pinky.

Life is but a wisp of air, time may pass you by.
Love these days the sun it's rays tomorrow is now here.
Don't wish away the time you may enjoy it should you try.
Life is full and Hawks they know in Heaven there is no beer.

I have been writing poetry all my life. So I am 16, figure about five years.

I have never written about the game but about life. The oceans. I'll give you another here. Give me a moment to search my archives.

This one Santa might enjoy. He is a fellow kite-flier.

SINGING SAILS​


The sails they sing, they fly from string
bright colors cross the sky.
They dance and prance in noble trance
set high above oh my.
Dear kite catch wind, I cast adrift
my hands they set you free.
Be safe in flight, save me the fright
and dare not touch the tree.

I wrote this one when I was discharged by my doctor at Mayo, having beaten tongue cancer. Toxic and Skittles might be familiar with Mayo Clinic.

Mayo Clinic​


Her marble columns, so big and tall, bring your sick, they beckon all.
All persons special, big and small, come one come all, to Mayo’s hall.
Doctors, nurses and staff they care. Much time well spent, invested there.
Blood tests, x-rays, camera clues, check my neck, my tongue my tonsils too.
Feel my throat now swallow hard, gag me till my lips turn blue.
Now it’s over, now I’m through. I made it finally, I paid my due.
They send me home, one final time, we shed a tear, they said take care.
So bye old friends, I hold so dear, I’ll never forget you, the coast is clear.

That took...a dark turn quickly and ended on a somber note...

And this is also news to everyone who hasn't known this. ;) Further proof that everyone has a story, and theres always more to the person behind the name!

Everybody has a story. A dear friend of mine, age 40, was just told she has "metastatic carcinoma". You just never know.

I BYDE MY TYME.

Feet warming at the hearth of an ancient Celtic fire,
Almighty Phoenix rising from the ashes forever higher.
From the highland sheep, it's fleece has long been shorn,
Made into garments that father before father have long worn.
Our fathers name boldly shown in coloured thread,
Openly showing from which family we have been bred.
Blackwood and ivory, skins filled with our expelled air,
Headlong into battle marching without much care.
If we are wounded by life or by sword and died where we fell.
It matters not for our tartan and shield will always have a proud story to tell.

Written for my father, a bagpiper of 60 years.
A piper with the Victorian Scottish Regiment.
Our family motto " I Byde My Tyme".
