Jonathan Caswell:

ONE OF MY FAVORITE TOPICS……AS IF YOU COULDN’T TELL!!!

Originally posted on witlessdatingafterfifty:

It is officially the weekend! Hope that most of you are also having time off

from work. I do feel bad for those who are weekend ‘warriors’ or have to

go into a job, while others are off. It all balances out, I suppose. My oldest

daughter is one who works weekends, gets a couple of weekdays off, along

with my son. Both are busy parents and partners with someone who is the

one who is home over the weekend. While during the week, I may keep a

healthy eating balanced ‘diet,’ on weekends; I enjoy ‘splurges!’

My friend and I walked to Dairy Point, to get our ‘end of summer’ meal

there. Mine is a hot dog with onions, pickles, relish and mustard, fried

mushrooms with ranch dressing to add more calories and dip into and

a sundae. This place roasts nuts, they have what they call, “The Nut

PRAISE GOD FOR BEAUTY!

Jonathan Caswell:

PRAISE GOD FOR BEAUTY WITHIN, TOO!!!

Originally posted on OUR POETRY CORNER:

PRAISE GOD FOR BEAUTY!

In view of comments received,

This author is mightily relieved…

To know window shopping

And compliment dropping,

Is not the process to be deceived.

-

As God’s Creation whirls,

Praise the Lord for beauty in girls…

For sound, sight and scent,

Of these I shan’t relent

But treasure those feminine pearls.

-

Unlike  a picture magazine,

Real women are whom I mean…

Opportunity’s design

To bring out her mind,

In light conversation—supreme!

-

It gives this man a rush

To see her appreciate much…

An attentive man

Who willingly scans,

In a way she feels good should she blush.

-

Praise God for beautiful sights

And other more social delights…

Taking time for some talk

Without strings may un-balk,

Either person’s feelings of slights.

-

Praise God for girl-and-boy watching,

The practice of social hop-scotching…

So each may in turn

Have time to learn,

Self-centeredness truly is…

Not to be

Close-minded,

But for

The next

Eleven days,

My mind

Will be closed

For vacation!

Goodbye, stress.

Hello,

Relaxation!

Summer

Will

Not

End

Until

This Modern Philosopher

Has vacated

The hustle

And bustle.

People

Keep asking

Where I’m going,

And I

Tell them

I’m just

Turning

My back

On the things

That drive

Me crazy.

I’m going

To my

Happy place.

I’ll be

Doing nothing

Other than

Doing nothing.

The highlight

Of my

Vacation

Is not having

To go

To work.

I can go

Full Writer.

I will answer

To no one

Other than

Myself,

And the stories

That clatter

Around

In my head.

Word to paper.

No time clock.

No stress.

No worries.

I am vacating

The world

Outside my door,

To explore

The world

Inside my head.

If you’re lucky,

I’ll send you

A well-written

Postcard…

Ghosts in the night

Jonathan Caswell:

PRETTY PURTY—-HUH?

Tonight the tinnitus is playing up. It is often worse at night when there is so little background noise to mask it. I won’t go into it all again, I wrote about it a while ago and once was enough. Suffice it to say I can’t sleep. It will need something to ‘re-set’ my attention and take the focus off it, so I will walk the dog… or listen to music… or get on with one of the things that has been bothering me since the last trip north.

I’ve been putting that off, of course. Like the tinnitus, my attention prefers to clutch at any spar that diverts it, for I know that once I get beyond the jotted notes and snatches of images that swirl through the mind I will be plunged back into a night some two and a half thousand years ago when…

STILL HER HERO!

STILL HER HERO!

Twice she mentioned it this week,

A guy doesn’t know what to speak…

Kim was glad

That my help she had,

Or else, she’d have been up a creek!

-

I said, “Any time”and meant it,

Her sweetness–the flowers resent it–

The car battery’s fine

And we caught it in time,

My heart at her words–they sent it!
