Two Dental Poems for the Price of One

Couldn’t resist a little fun with dentistry today — in response to the Daily Post Prompt: Cavity.  So here’s a little cinquain question, and a little iambic pentameter advice.

 

DENTIST 330FRIEND OR FOE?

Dentist:
I went today.
Is he my friend or foe?
He fixed my tooth but STRAINED my nerves.
Not sure.


 

BRUSH, FLOSS, RINSE

TOOTHBRUSHES -- PIXABAY

Be sure to use your toothbrush every day.
Or if you use it twice a day, that’s better yet.
Because if you will clean your teeth a lot,
Then when you see the dentist, you won’t have to fret.

Of course, it’s wise to floss as well as brush,
And then, after the flossing, we should always rinse
With something that will kill bacteria.
I guess with all the gunk we eat, it does make sense.

Anyway, I’m giving this advice —
The same advice my mommy always gave to me.
So hopefully, you won’t lose any teeth,
But keep a brilliant smile for everyone to see.

Christmas Calls for Cinquain

CHRISTMAS VILLAGE enlarged

# 1

Carols:
Floating music,
Making merry sound waves,
Singing happy tidings from God
To man.

# 2

Stockings
Hung with great care.
Tots on best behavior
Wake on Christmas morn to find them
All filled.

# 3

Kissing
‘Neath mistletoe,
Icing Christmas cookies,
And hanging lights with tinsel bright
Make fun.

# 4

Christmas:
I wonder why
Some call it by false names.
It’s sole identity resides
In Christ.

Star Dance – for Daily Post Prompt

jubilant-stars-sepiajpg

I looked
Into the night,
And to my great delight,
I saw a thousand stars begin
To dance.

I heard
No music played,
But could feel the rhythm
Of their pirouetting ‘cross the
Night sky.

Angels
No doubt did sing
And tap their feet in time:
The universe in harmony —
What joy!


I originally posted this poem a few weeks ago, but it so perfectly fits today’s prompt from the Daily Post (Dancing) that I decided to re-post it with a link to that prompt.

Cinquain to a Wise (?) Owl

OWL PLACEMAT - RESIZED.JPG

Wise Owl,
I’m mystified
About why you’re thought wise.
Is it your hunting skills, or just
Big eyes?

It seems
That when it comes
To communication,
Vocabulary isn’t your
Strong point.

“Who, Who”?
I mean — Get real —
Those words show ignorance.
Yet men believe wisdom resides
In you?

Ah well,
Still mystified,
I will concede I like
To hear you “sing” while others sleep —
At night.
