write_on1.jpg Poem of the Month

The Band
The lead guitar thought he was the star
because he could play his solo perfect
behind his back while standing on his head.

The keyboard thought the lead guitar was
wrong since he played both the melodies,
harmonies, and wrote the song.

The guitar that played the bass thought
first was his place since he played the
notes that gave the song basic chords.

The drum thought, with his coordinated
happy hands and feet, it was up to him
to keep up the group’s changing beat.
was the best in their own way, but to make
a song sound the best they all had to play
as a single group and listen to the
sounds each member of the band heard.

They had to be in rhythm and they all
had to be in tune, but more than that,
they need to be together or
the group would end soon.

Happy New Year!

Howdy from Elias Tobias and Patty,
It’s time to change the calendars around the house and the office.  A new year is upon us.  Plans have been penciled on  the calendar dates, but there is time for those events to be changed.  The theme for this month will be a new year, with all its potential and uncertainty. 

People have lost jobs and other fear for loss of employment.  I will continue to teach at Ivy Tech in the Spring Semester and start to take classes to work toward requirements for continued employment.  The good news is the college will pay for the classes, eventually.  I just have to pass the classes first.  Learning is a good thing. Patty is comfortable with her job, the reason we can back to Indiana.  The cold weather has been a significant adjustment compared to Laredo, Texas.  I just buy more coats and sweaters.
As far as the the World of Words by Elias Tobias goes, I will continue the things that seem to work, including the Spanish poems, Palabras de Inspracioñ, and add new things, like Mike’s Book Cafe, and the Trivia Quiz. Older features, such as the Open Poetry Forum, the International Poetry Link Exchange, free posters and videos on You Tube will continue to complete the web blog.

Behind the Christmas card

There is a picture of a large house
and cars in front, all covered in snow,
and the multi-color lights on the house
 and in the lawn put on a  grand show,
but  there are secrets spoken that
only family members should know.
There was a child born there that
compared to the others, wasn’t the same.
Records hidden in the safe might reveal
that he was born under a different name.
For some people there might be a bad case
of guilt and a sprinkle of shame;
but it is never told who is really to blame.
The smiles are shared during the season,
and hiding the truth is a fun game as
parties are given and presents exchanged.
So have a merry Christmas, the inside of card
 says, and a have a happy new year.
Sing praises of auld lang syne, and have
another one of the imported beers.
