About Rick W. Cotton

I am a middle manager in Corporate America....when I am not staring out the window at the color of the leaves, or the clouds, or the blue of the sky. I am a hopeless romantic, love old movies and music, and special times. Cannot abide rap, liver and onions, reality TV, and shopping malls. I have a lovely wife, a fat cat, and a taste for BBQ.

    Contemplation And Prayer

    in Prayer Poems

    A heard a soft sound, like wind through the trees,
    But there was no wind, for the air was still
    And the forest stood waiting, silent and strong,
    Trees standing guard as they always will

    The Joy Of The Thanksgiving Season

    in Thanksgiving Poems

    It's cold outside, but it's warm in my heart.
    And the gray fall sky is His work of art.
    Laden and low, quiet and still,
    November is welcome, and my eyes drink their fill

    The Fun Of Jack O' Lanterns

    in Halloween Poems

    Jack comes every year to visit me,
    And his grin just makes me smile.
    Nearly toothless, he doesn't care.
    He happily laughs all the while.

  • I Wouldn't Live In A Haunted House

    • Published: October 26, 2018

    in Halloween Poems

    I wouldn't live in a haunted house;
    It's something I just wouldn't do.
    Not in creepy haunted house.
    Not with me or even with you.

  • The Ballad Of Daylight Savings Time

    • Published: August 29, 2018

    in Humorous Poems

    What's with this Daylight Savings Time?
    It steals our sleeping, snoozing time
    Roll out of bed and take a breath
    And feel like microwaved-reheated death

    Daylight saving can either be a blessing or a curse. Thanks for the laugh. Australia is currently enjoying summer daylight saving time. Loved the verse.
