When life gives you lemons,
Eat them.
They do not taste that bad.

Life is like autumn.
Stop to crunch the pesky leaves.

Love is... let me think...

Don't judge a book by its cover.

Poetry is a way to put words to things that are unexplainable.

The red paint can was used for art
By one old man each day.
To him, the red paint became old
And then, was thrown away.

Another man then plucked it out
Of that small garbage can
And used it for the same purpose
But thought it looked too tan.

The final man to pick it up,
Looked at it with taste.
He then used it himself each day
His hands working with haste.

At last! The picture was complete.
His canvas was not white.
It had colors of every kind.
This Red Can was
Just Right.
