SORRY TO BLOG AND SCRAM!

The nature of who I am,

So sorry to post and scram…

Wife want eating

Three meals completing,

I’l come back here if I can!

This blogs my poetry,

Finding mine is the key…

SEARCH:  “Caswell”–

Most are  revealed,

Written heroically!

As to the prompt–almost any–

Subject inspiring–many…

Three or four styles

Bring you smiles,

A Christian blog not like any?

–Jonathan Caswell

 

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!

Will Mrs. “C.” do cosplay?

(A POLITICAL LIMERICK POEM—SATIRICAL FORM)

Cosplay—the playing of parts,

Dressed-up  in costumes d’arts…

Resistance she claims

She’s in with the dames,

Who want Trump cut into parts!

Will she in her cosplay, dress,

As a female Che  Guevera, I guess…..

A camo “two piece”

Would shock at least,

Her lovely hair a mess.

–J.E.C.

OLDER FOLK FASHION

Sixty-one years of age,

Miniskirts are hardly the rage…

Fabric and patterns

Covering matters,

Loose-fitting generally sage.

The Missus would make her own,

Doing the work at home…

A sewing machine

Her kind of dream,

Making new clothes to put on!

Being somewhat stout,

She has to figure out…

Where the waist

And shoulder placed,

Confirms her beauty throughout.

Sad to see her fail,

I can’t help with detail…

Her machine sits idle–

Activities vital

She’s fearful she cannot prevail.

Catalogs give a hint

Of what twinkles her squint…

I shop there–

For things she can wear–

Though at times it costs a mint!

–Jonathan Caswell

WELLING UP TO OVERFLOWING

Samaritan woman’s thirst

For something so she won’t burst…

Came to this well

And heard Jesus tell,

To put Him first.

Thirsty beyond mere water,

She was a human daughter…

Caught in her lies–

Opened her eyes–

To see living water!

The Lord didn’t put her down,

As she went through her town…

Calling to tell

All of that Well,

Who would stick around!

–Jonathan Caswell

BIBLE REFERENCE:  John 4: 7- 31.

GOT HIS MEDICINE

One may think the man is fruity,

He needed a good dose of beauty…

Typical male

Where sight prevails,

Socialization and cutie!

Talking with her pleasantly,

Important in remedy…

Of his despair

Her being there,

Totally missed her last time, you see!

Knows to not make waves,

But her friendliness him saves…

Someone to view

And nice to talk to,

When he emerges from caves!

–Jonathan Caswell

LIQUID SATISFACTION

Strolling down the long hall.

For five espressos, that’s all…

Creamer perhaps

Preventing naps,

It hurts–that office chair fall!

Chocolate espresso looked weak,

No color of which to speak…

The normal stuff

Was dark brown enough,

To bring blushes to the cheek.

Walking back down the hall,

Carefully didn’t spill at all…

There’s medical need

For caffeine indeed,

That coffee machine doth call!

–Jonathan Caswell

HIDING BEHIND THE GOSPEL? NAY–FACING REALITY!

When reading the sad and sweet,

He thinks of his own need…

Desires awake

To find that state,

Betraying his wife by  greed.

He doesn’t want to betray

His beloved, but anyway…

If he  says he has  no sin

He’s lying within,

Just done it in different ways.

You gotta live to learn,

Salvation isn’t what you earn…

God’s learning curve

(This poet has the nerve!)…

Has no one immediately burn!

–Jonathan Caswell

MINIATURE RAILWAYS PLOW SNOW TOO!

On the JOSHUA TREE,

And other riding railroads one can see….

Train running play

Plowing snow away,

As long as there’s no injuries!

–J.E.C.

WHO SAYS SMALL ISN’T POWERFUL???

A motorized rotary plow,

Miniaturized some how…

Spins really fast

And snow’s cast,

Off in the here and now.

I think this is “O” scale,

With big enough blades to flail…

Snow out its chute

And looks cute,

Prototypical in its detail!

It looks battery-powered,

To spin out the snow sideways showered…

Down to the lawn

Or what it’s built on,

Do you know how many tablespoons of snow moved per hour?
