Lying on the couch

I suddenly feel shaking

Not quite an earthquake

#

Aquarium lights

Newly purchased L.E.Ds

Looks like a disco

#

Science fiction vlog

All very interesting

Creativity

Polymath

A polymath am I, with wondrous mind powers,

The names of all the flowers, Euclid’s geometry,

A feel my brain to brim with facts miscellaneous

Surmises extemporaneous, the best philosophy

And to end chemistry.

#

I practice languages from French to ancient latin

Recite the songs of Chopin, and Chinese History

I plumb the darkest depths of physics hard equations

Behavior of crustaceans, Roman mythology

And for fun poetry

Four years

Recently I awoke,

As I always do,

You beside me

Wrapped in sheets,

Your natural state,

Enjoying the silence,

No words spoken,

Only a hug, a soft kiss,

Nothing else needed

To celebrate the passing

Four years together

With you, the love of my life.

Photo exhibit

Images from the whole world

Makes us all look small

Fish tank without light

Plants seem to be surviving

Maybe not needed

Job applications

Are just lying through your teeth

Better than the rest
