BLOGGING LIVE!!!!

Unprepared for the day,

Given opportunity to “play”…

My spirit thrives

In cannonball dives,

Can’t let this get away!

–Jonathan Caswell

 

A NOTE ABOUT THIS CRAZY (?) BLOG:

(In poetic form, of course!)

Many folks apparently,

Like this poetry…

But far and away

They come for the array

Of posts re-blogged by me!

I’m sorry–the fault is mine,

For so was I inclined…

Toward building a base

Of readers at a pace,

Shown to work over time.

A vast majority say

The reblogs are why they stay…

Or at least I infer

That from comments heard,

My poetry–well, it’s okay!

There are–how many?–a “few’,

Who look for my limericks too…

Separation doesn’t work–

My ego got jerked–

The experiment was through!

A ratio of four-to-one,

Or higher to which it has come…

Sometimes I regret

My impatience, yet,

It still is a lot of fun!

TO ALL BELIEVERS OF ANY FAITH

It sounds controversial

For  a Christian to appeal…

To believers of all other gods

To lend their aid and deal…

With the human suffering

Of two major hurricanes

Families of many faiths

Enduring loss and pain!

Even if you have no god,

Please  think good thoughts to heal…

It’ll be a long time  till many folks

Return to an even keel;

This is what my Dad might have done

In his liberal theology…

Reaching out to all concerned

With no apology!

I’ m thinking of a special friend,

A blogger fresh and true…

Known as Holly Hunter

And other Floridians, too;

Her “House of Heart” is quiet till

She survives the storm….

I repeat my concern

For her a colleagues’ love is warm!

To our knees, lotus positions, or however you access the divine—for the sake all storm victims!

WHAT DOES A FASHION BLOG DO?

What does a fashion blog do,

In my case, to give ample views…

Of the currently stated

Fashion related,

To people who want looks new!

For me, an additional ken,

To write a suitable poem…

Appearance or design–

Either can rhyme–

Expressing lyrically then…!

Not only women count,

But am showing men’s–a small amount–

The opposite gender

I deem more tender,

And worth every verse that comes out!

–Jonathan Caswell

ONLY PHONEY BALONEY?

Had to see what is true,

When media screw…

News stories

To mirror their creeds,

With an objective to undo?

Yellow and jingo once printed,

Are nothing compared to hate printed….

Open rebellion

Looks Orwellian,

By big financiers it’s rented.

FOX NEWS is giving in

To the liberal din…

Instead of balancing

Progressive thinking,

Surrender is made to their sin.

–A Political Opinion Poem–by Jonathan Caswell

 

GOD HOUSE, OH GOD HOUSE!*

Little stone pagodas,

In some garden corners…

Garden protection

By spirit direction.

Not wanting any reformers!

For those who believe,

These little houses conceived…

To spirits open

Gardeners hoping,

Blessing s are on the way!

For Christians, this garden art,

Tempts those who escaped  this part…

Of pagan belief

It is no relief,

Knowing spirits here park!

Some claim these are ornamental,

And we shouldn’t be judgmental…

If one has escaped

Being spirit chased,

Getting rid of these is fundamental!

When I see these—will they be removed?

No–each one chooses spirit truth…

We can pray

You’ll toss them away,

But it is your choice and your roof!

–Jonathan Caswell

*Please note that the subject of this poem is the author’s own opinion—no guarantees that either the provider of the illustration or anyone else believes as I do.  My friends have their own opinions and beliefs. Not everyone may be aware of what these cute stone pagodas represent, which I feel I should point out–then leave the deciding up to each person to decide for themselves!–Jonathan E. Caswell  I still love all you fellow bloggers!  🙂

An Opinion Poem

A NEW SNACK REGIMEN

Sectioned celery suffices

As sufficient snack devices…

Put in plastic bags

Available for long drags,

The low-calorie high fiber taste surprises!

–Jonathan Caswell

 

UNCERTAIN RECEPTION

He drives an intersection,

Fearing sudden connection…

When he slows

Someone chose

To cut him off by their discretion.

A blind curve to the right,

Going straight with flashing yellow light….

Those at the stop sign

On his right past the line,

Pull out causing him fright!

Natural tendency

Is to slow a bit for accuracy…

His straight lay

Drops out of sight,

Beyond which it’s hard to see.

Takes his life in his hands,

Because it depends…

Will traffic opposing

Just supposing,

Put his death into their hands?

–Jonathan Caswell

 

PITHY THE LIMERICK WRITER

Limerick writers choose

If they’ll follow news…

Or focus

On certain business,

Poking others views!

Communists in California,

Seen by liberals as normal…

The public’s sucked in

For years this has been,

Their equating has just been acknowledged  in a matter formal!

Or do I focus on Christ—

His world-changing sacrifice…

Both things are true

Yet which to pursue,

Politics ALWAYS bites!

Of the two only Christ,

Reliably offers His lights…

Those other guys

Too often disguise

For whom they are acolytes!

Besides all this we note,

Not everyone’s in the same boat…

Politically involved

No sin resolves,

Politics is mostly getting someone’s goat!

So I choose Christ and will try

To not let my opinions fly…

But don’t worry

I will not curry

Favor of the other side!  🙂

WORD PRESS WISDOM (REALISTIC)

This blogger on WORD PRESS,

Learns lessons duly stressed…

Mild sarcasm

Avoiding the chasm,

Of always assuming the best!

Not that there’s anything wrong,

With singing one’s song…

Just be aware

Potentially there,

Of paying for opinions strong!

The crowd loves happiness,

Ornery characters—less–

Be your own person

Of whatever version,

Diplomacy makes for success!

Hacking and attacking aside,

Almost anything WORD PRESS abides…

Security threats

Quickly sets

Teeth on edge on all sides.

–Jonathan Caswell
