POET…AFTER (A) FASHION!

He calls himself “fashion poet”,

One or two others know it…

In pursuits

Avoiding lawsuits,

He certainly doesn’t want to blow it!

Him being man and all,

Must carefully judge his call…

With less passion

Than stereotypical fashion,

Not being the Beast at the ball.

Gender matters to him,

Especially if women…

They’re the kind

He most has in mind,

Do they mind if he tiptoes in?

<3 MY LOVE FOR LADY BLOGGERS! <3

❤     MY LOVE FOR LADY BLOGGERS     ❤

Avowed love of lady bloggers,

Hard-working creative bloggers…

I love thee all

For me you stand tall,

Driving us romantics bonkers!  🙂

Some of you are very fetching,

Appearance not all that’s catching…

The mind and heart–

Thy very art–

Draweth me to your fine meshings!

By word and artistic guile,

You make this creative man smile…

Cry and laugh

On your behalf,

Each in a wonderful style.

Long distance hugs the rule

In this community cool….

Cool in attitude

To not be rude,

Suggesting of anything cruel.

Group hugs all around,

My love to all of you found….

In likes and raves

From this former knave,

Who likes in whose company he’s found!

INVISIBLE KANGAROO

INVISIBLE KANGAROO

G’DAY MATE, he said to his invisible kangaroo,

I have here some nice fruit and grasshoppers too…

I have a place laid out for you to sleep safely inside–

Would grasshopper legs stuck in the teeth hurt kangaroo pride?

I tried just to see him

The bushes were too thick…

Until from behind I felt

A vicious kangaroo kick!

I’ve learned not to disbelieve

A pooka or his friend…

Like Harvey in the story goes,

This is a fluffy end!

QUESTION OF EXISTANCE

QUESTION OF EXISTANCE

Attracted to a candidate

Because she’s female…

Willing to weigh carefully

Then let her view prevail!

This just isn’t  the first time

Emotions have swayed….

By a woman to him defined

Another goose egg laid;

He can’t get rid of it

Before his final breath….

The only way to escape

Manhood is within death.

DRY MOUTH

DRY MOUTH

They say I have a dry mouth

Because you are not here…

The sweetness of your lips

I’m thirsting for my dear.

I’m craving your love like water

From a natural spring…

But without you beside me,

My heart cannot sing!

I long to drink in your beauty,

Fulfill my joyous duty…

But until you’re here

I know my dear

My breath is dry not fruity.

PURRING ALONG

PURRING ALONG

My wife’ pointing out kitties

For adopting in the local paper…

Emotionally she’s hoping for

Another kitty cat caper.

Never mind reality

Of medical risk from scratches…

She would ignore it all

To find adoption matches.

I do want one

But am afraid if she in fear is pinned…

(The last year of Tippie Cat)

A potential situation she’d be in?

With car payments taken on

We have little choice…

Again we cannot afford a cat

but I’ll let her have her voice!

CIRCUMCISE MY HEART

CIRCUNCISE MY HEART

Open my eyes

Then circumcise

Me from sin and lies.

Make me to see

Reality

And angels all around me!

Coming to bed

My daily bread,

Feeding on what You said.

Circumcise me

Eternally,

My heart is open to Thee!
