In Memory of a Departed Friend by Blair Gaulton

In Memory of a Departed Friend
Face frozen in time
always seeing her smile
hearing her laugh
was an elixir of joy
for all who heard it
amazing jokes and voices
a priceless person
you are sorely missed
cherished loved
now and always.

Birthday Party by Blair Gaulton

Birthday Party
Tabled gorged with food
could order
if you wanted something else
music twiddling in background
people giving presents
eating drinking
dancing playing darts
a wonderful place
to have a good time
did not realize it was so late
felt regret in leaving this place!

Tonight’s Performance by Blair Gaulton

Tonight’s Performance
Theatre packed
we’re ready to go
and give ‘ em a fabulous show
giving our all
you can hear the laughter
far down the hall
our energy soars
we give even more
they respond
feeding off each other
we try new things
loving the happiness it brings
the show ends
a tsunami applaus.

Asleep on the Tracks by Blair Gaulton

Asleep on the Tracks
Asleep in the middle of the tracks
driver sees just in time
stops train
gets out
wakes him up
drunkenly staggers away
driver reports with a quip
he thought he was at home in bed
shaking his head.
all laughing
we resume our trip.
