EXPLAIN YOUR PURPOSE IN BLOGGING

ACCEPT ALL THE APPLAUSE YOU CAN GET  😀

WHY DOES I BLOG?—–WELL, I began, in part as a continuation of my therapy writing. and love for limericks.  I started with “THE POETRY CORNER,” on FACEBOOK. administrated by Ron DuBour….following him onto Word Press…and his new blog, OUR POETRY CORNER…which is alive and well and I occasionally still contribute to.  Went out on my own, three years this October, with the start of this blog, BY THE MIGHTY MUMFORD.  I also have an “overflow” blog, THE MARVELOUS MUMFORD, before I learned that my capacity limits referred only to my picture file!

I guess my role here is to love, as Jesus Christ would, all the bloggers I come in contact with….finding SOMETHING to have common ground on.  I’ve tried to discuss differences, but I haven’t the heart—too costly for me!  But al least I can love…!

It has largely turned into a personal semi-autobiographical poetry blog for me  (I blog almost anything—that’s true!).  Currently I’m on a women’s fashion poetry kick.  They seem to provide as much or more material (no pun intended…REALLY!) for poetry as anything else.It has it’s own language to learn…boat neck, etc.  I also will do poetry “on commission”—no loved poems, please…although I did do a mock one recently and generated a lot of interest…out of shock, I think!

Thanks for being patient with me and my explanation of why I blog!

MODEL RAILROAD TOURS

MODEL RAILROAD TOURS

Miniaturized technology

Makes possible “cab ride” tours…

Of good model railroads

Compared with yours!

Observe the long main line

Listen to the rail click sounds…

Even certain comments from

The crew, mostly within bounds.

Sometimes folks are camera shy

At others…can’t get ’em out of the way…

Seeing people out-of-scale

Destroys the fantasy made!

EXIT STRATEGY

EXIT STRATEGY

—AT THE END OF A WORK DAY

We all have our bad days,

That  follow us quite a ways…

Get to that door

Don’t worry anymore,

And take a new appraise!

LITTLE MILLER FLYING

LITTLE MILLER FLYING

A little miller flying

Around inside…

Thinks my computer

A place to abide.

Till I come

Scaring this white moth

Away down the hall

To find a safer loft!

RAIN ON THE PANE BUT NOT SO PLAIN…?

RAIN ON THE PANE–BUT NOT SO PLAIN-?

On my window pain every morning,

“Evidence” that it’s been storming…

Although the pavement’s dry

The driveway drains nearby,

Did it come without warning?

No, it is a scheduled thing,

Lawn irrigation runs from late Spring…

The spray can be a pain

If it hits your window pane,

Open windows can be very messy things!

EMPLOYMENT COSTS OF AUTISM

EMPLOYMENT COSTS OF AUTISM

The employment costs of autism

Include the husband’s schism…

Away from that home

Leaving wife all alone

To make it without his decision.

The mother scarcely provides

Enough so the children survive…

As for she,

P.T.S.D.

As in battle doth thrive!

To many mothers are rattled,

By sickness that they’ve battled…

At work or home

They’re never alone,

Night times are just as addled.

Many autistic children wander

At night or day out yonder…

Parents rarely know

When the kids will go,

A frightening thought to ponder!

Employers taking notice

Have started form justified motives…

To find ways

For employee’s days,

With autistic  kids  to be work-devoted.

The radio program on WTAG,

Out of Worcester, Mass., clearly

Mentioned resources

And other courses,

To find support for thee.

The JORDAN LEVY SHOW,*

On this date, the program to know…

Check it out on the Web–

Mom’s soul needs be fed–

Her emotional gas tank is dangerously low!

–Jonathan Caswell
