STRANGER THINGS…

Stranger outcomes happen,

When opportunity’s tapping,

Wanting in

And you begin

Writing ideas you’re trapping!

He’s written ’bout Christ and trains–

Weather seems worth one’s pains….

Fashion poems are new

As something to do,

And the challenge takes working brains!

I’d say it is channeling energy,

Most of which has left me….

Shapes and sizes

And stylish surmises,

Still need a bard’s entrée.

“An eye for the women.” one said,

Focusing on their clothes instead..

“Clothes make the man”

And women, and can

Leave little more to be said!

YET–a poet describes,

Details that emanate vibes…

Along a track

That likes feedback,

Both positive and wise!

THE POEM CHALLENGE—DAY # 2.

POEM CHALLENGE—DAY # 2.

QUOTE:

“You have to learn the people you work with…before you work with them.”

–Arthur (alias…”Bo”)

(A resident where I live)

THE POEM:

He spent a lifetime learning people,

Both under and away from church steeples…

Handling them fair

Showing that he cared,

At work or making teacle!

The people one cares for soon go,

His beloved wife also…

The kids he remembers

Are now dying embers,

He knows soon that he’ll have to go!

–Jonathan Caswell

IF I FIND YOU NEAR THE RIVER”

FRUSTRATIONS IN MARRIAGE

(Sung to the tune of “Grandma’s In The Cellar”–A REAL TUNE!)

Frustrations in marriage

People oft disparage,

Thinking everything should work perfectly!

Character building

Of which we are unwilling…

Gets under skin eventually!

It’s a sin,

Don’t give in…

Murder never solved a single blessed thing!

You were made to live together,

Grow strong in stormy weather…

Or divorce lawyers will get everything!

–Jonathan Caswell
