British Columbia, Canada
I decided to write alone and put them out of their misery LOL So here goes, one of four parts I am putting together for you all to hopefully enjoy.
In the beginning some mice poet friends met
While posting their words in these pages of blue,
Different folks, with such different lives,
Their love of poetry, and fun became their very glue.
Now this is a new tale I was asked to tell
Of a mouse adventure with one HUGE surprise.
My Canadian journey went from the west to east,
To find something you had to see with your own eyes.
The first mouse I met was so sweet, and demure
Even though horrible heat blasted way over the top!
Still she smiled “that sweet smile,” from ear to ear,
While every 5 feet I yelled, “When’s our next water stop!”
After enjoying the silence, the trees, and birds all ‘round,
The countryside folks, and even the train whistle blowing at 11:11,
We planned, and planned, and we planned some more
For this vacation of fun was to take us up to heaven.
Adventure took hold and off we went,
A mysterious mouse being led quite astray.
With my questions galore, and Kit's patience abound,
We both headed for hell on a freeway that day.
"Which way do I turn," was Kit's favorite question,
With maps in hand numbering 1,003 ~
I am dyslexic, from way out west, and.
She leaves the directions to someone like me?
We finally landed by a park with rides galore,
Roller coasters by the dozens stretched up to the sky.
I looked at a few of them towering but still beckoning us,
With one question,“Hey Kit, does that thing there fly?”
For us one day was not nearly enough,
So we got that Pipp adrenalin pumping twice,
Then headed home – hot, sticky, but pumped,
To greet Miss Gypsy Mouse, the final missing “mice.”
I tell you this was the very first time in my life my bladder almost emptied due to a ride! It was called, "The Bat," and don't go on it with a weak heart, or especially a weak bladder! I loved it! Kit and I did as many rides as two days would gift us in heat and humidity so bad we were just positively "glowing."
