A Blue Rubber Ball
A blue rubber ball
Hidden in the stubbled field...
When did you lose it, my
Golden Chip of sunshine?
It was well-chewed,
Had played hard, like you.
Did you laugh when you dropped it,
Thinking to tease?
Ten years and more
The grasses have hidden it.
How swift are the shadows
That measure our days.
A red rubber ball
Nestled with your buried bones...
Do you run the forever fields
Awaiting another game?

|Made another shopping trip and got all the rest of the ingredients for the hot meals
Tuna-rice curry, peanuts, banana pudding
Bean soup, cornbread, tootsie rolls
Only a short walk... still rained all day!
