The shuttle experience may not have gone as hoped, but there is one thing this little tiger can say for certain, his mom kicks it harder than your mom. Image Copyright Tadalena Warner

No one cares to show the light

No one cares to show the light
By Tadalena Warner

Write today, perhaps make it a song, a limerick, a melody by which to sing along
Make it funny, make it light, and make it memorable; a pleasant delight
Whatever you do, make it yours, put your mark on it and make it last
It is your part in this moment soon to pass, your bit spoken true
Your truth spoken long, it is the only moment you have until it’s gone
No one minds what you may say; no one minds the games you play
So, play if you will, sing if you like, or hum a little rhyme if the moods hits tonight

Indifference

Indifference
By Tadalena Warner

You leave the light on and I wait
A moment perhaps, so we may speculate
but you aren’t up for chatter these days
In truth, you aren’t up for much if I’m in the craze
You’d much rather chat it up with women of late
Pretty little packages on your lappy screen
They offer more sustenance than a woman like me
Fillies who’ve had enough of the married scene
Ditching their husbands or they of them
then looking for suitors who remind her of him
but they know not what they truly desire
Is it companionship, fun, or the filthy mire
Perhaps, they seek comfort from you
Money, luxury, or our family who
We dreamt of, created, and nurtured
but what of their families, their hopes of the future
Did they abandon them for a moment on your screen
in hopes of finding a mate from someone else’s dream
