Renaldo’s a Face, an Impression While Walking (and a couple haikus)

Renaldo’s a face
That I see every day
He is not a good looking fellow

His nose, you could say
Is a monstrous beak
And would make a young child bellow

He’s a patch in the street
Workers just filled a hole
But the job remarkably led

From what was supposed
To fix up a problem, made
Serendipitous artwork instead

At first, I admit
His nose was alarming
It was quite a sight to behold

But now that I know him
His honker’s as charming
As his magnificent mind full of gold

And this is the lesson
To look past the wrapping
And remember that Cyrano guy

You will discover
Fabulous worlds under cover
Just open your mind, and try

A favorite phrase
There’s food for you on the stove
I made it myself

Sometimes I sleep, but
Dreams make a reality
That’s hard to un-do
