The Natural History Puzzle Book by Dr. Gareth Moore

Wanted to remind myself

Of my Anthropology background

But goodness gracious

Stumped and stuck

Is it easy for you?

Don’t mind saying

You are smart if it is

They say

Knowledge is power

Well knowledge can

Also be specific

Is it general knowledge

Or specific knowledge

You have?

What knowledge

Do you want to gain?

It is important

Because your

New knowledge

Adds to

Community strength

And personal satisfaction

Huh?

Maybe homework

Was good?

It’s hot

So hot

Jump into the pool?

No pool? Huh?

Got a plan

Take the hose

Lay some plastic

Have the water

Roll down

The length of of plastic

But wait the corners

A mess

What!

Doused in water spray

That’s it

Going inside

Soon a jug

Poured right over the body

Dripping

Soaked to the bone

And the spray

Is directly on me

Running

Laughing

Water poured

back and forth

It is no longer hot.

Just time to

Officially

Go down

That water slide

Juneteenth

Standard
For those freed and the freedoms we have today.

Democracy is about freedom to be who you are or love about yourself. However it is also realizing that it is giving others the choice to be who they are or what they love about themselves. So don’t give up on your freedom of choice, losing the chains of being owned gives you choices, it is pure freedom.

Sunsets

Standard

Bright blue

With golden rays

Slowly transition

Bringing a shiny

Bronze glow

To the steel grey

City skyline

As the sky

Brings yellows, oranges

and pinks

Streaming above

The round

Light of warmth

Lowers into

The horizon

Until finally

Deep purples

to almost

Opaque blackness

Speckled with stars

And bright moon

Covers the sky

Guiding you

Through the dark
