Basin Of Words

My basin of words have started to disappear
One after another taken to be used
Dissolved once spoken or written
They slip through my fingers
Where to replace such words
Where I can write and speak again
With such gust I wish to find
Again what words have disappeared in my basin

Thanksgiving Feast

Turkey has finished cooking
Someone sneaks a piece of skin
Carving knife carves slices
Until turkey cease to be whole
All gather around the food
Each takes a plate laden high
Of how much food for first serving
Huge table all sit down
A prayer is spoken with heads bow
Give thanks, to the blessing of food
Dig in until you reach for seconds
Then no more; stuff as can be
But, wait there is still dessert
Sigh, I guess one can still fit that in too

I am hoping to the book will be ready by end of November in time for the holidays. Here is a sample poem from the book:

Double Elevenie: A Dog Walk

Dog
Very shy
Outside walking around
Couple coming up road
Hides

Me
Tugging leash
To continue walk
Coaxing dog to move
Frustrated

I Sit and Ponder

I sit and ponder
To no great wonder
Why you and I are here?

Deep in thought
For which I tried not
What thoughts I could try to spare.

Why the world is so big
That you could fit many boat rigs,
Holding many souls so dear.

I am one so small among many
I feel loss among any
Who are above getting plenty.

So I continue to ponder
Before mind goes asunder.
