My ball is changing

through time-energy converts

human to divine!

  • The first Times Square Ball was made of wood and iron, weighed 700 pounds, and was lit by a hundred 25-watt bulbs.
  • Now, it’s made of Waterford crystal, weighs almost six tons, and is lit by more than 32,000 LED lights. The party in Times Square is attended by up to a million people every year.

    Other cities have developed their own ball-dropping traditions.

  • Atlanta, Georgia, drops a giant peach.
  • Eastport, Maine, drops a sardine.
  • Ocean City, Maryland, drops a beach ball, and
  • Mobile, Alabama, drops a 600-pound electric Moon Pie.
  • In Tempe, Arizona, a giant tortilla chip descends into a massive bowl of salsa.
  • Brasstown, North Carolina, drops a Plexiglas pyramid containing a live possum; and
  • Key West, Florida, drops an enormous ruby slipper with a drag queen inside it.

Have You Seen Don?

iPhone Hut

I’ve lost him.

I’ve searched with screams
Ear buds silence them.

I’ve cried.
Tears don’t penetrate titanium.

So much digital memory:
No room for me.

Cloud can’t carry me:
Emotion weighs too much!

I’m the foreigner:
Mobile vs Tradition,
Come and go vs staying,
Breathing vs battery.

I charge in sleep mode:
Discern TMI.

Don is definitely lost…
I am alone…under the cloud
Wondering where to go…



Finding myself

By a stepmother
On Father’s Day.

With the responses
In the catholic church.
But familiar with the ecumenical language
Of Christ Episcopal.

Unable to muster
The mobile com;
Nostalgic for phone booth,
Landlines and quirky operators.

It isn’t even summer,
But the heat rises
To 105 and 115 degrees.
“Global Warming” seems too mild a term!

I schedule Sedona
To teach Calligraphy.
But they call it a ‘lost Art”
And banish Italic from the schools.
Seems we’re banned from flourishes!

Baking cookies
Used to be the last resort
For grounding.
Now we’re pushed out
As robots “chef” the kitchen:
Automatic invaders.
Chocolate chip cookies
Replaced by antioxidants.

Seems I’m just
An outdated label,
Making way for e-branding,
High surveillance
And texting blips!

U think?
