Vintage Postal Stamp ( Poem )

Turn of the century Vintage Stamps

Traceable history make value enhance

Prices get higher as the years go by

Dream of finding one valued so high

Extremely fine with the perfect gum

Designer flaws bring high premium

Famous from error illustration

Collection of art inspiration

We are crazy for detailed graphics

Finding rare depends on the markets

Unused are the old collectibles

Their worth can…

Harness Racing ( Poem )

Horses pull a two wheeled cart

If it breaks you will depart

Place a bet before it starts

Good wager wins if played smart

Riders ready at the gate

Fans no longer have to wait

Athlete sport with high speed

Is a skill you surely need

At times a horse can fall down

Sad to see that come around

Last turn has crowd in a roar

We wait to hear close end score

If your looking to explore

Kids Love For Animals ( Poem )

Children’s favorite shows are of animals

I have hours in a playlist that are laughable

Like a camera pecking rooster and fun monkeys

To a mom and a baby miniature donkeys

Videos of wild turkeys and charming geese

Ducks in water and chicks learning to speak

Dazzling ostrich and many free birds

Some you would not want to move towards

A large unique animal is the alligator

The total opposite of the…


Creating A Christmas Tree ( Poem )

Creating A Christmas Tree ( Poem )

Create designer Christmas tree

From squash, to bread, and fun cookies

Instructions made so easily

One from red hat society

Home from the heart season theme

Star wars made a holiday scene

Wonderland can be of little lambs

Making ornaments with your hands

Whatever your style or budget

Your personal touch can be tropic

Focal point of your home can be

Inspired by glamorous jewelry
