FORGETTING SOMETHING?

Losing bank cards he mutters,

Just as often for lost peanut butter…

But that’s in the car

But the other so far,

Hasn’t been found by one or the other!

COLUMBUS NEEDED SECURITY, TOO!

Columbus had men who slept

During days while the nights kept…

Watch at posts

For men or ghosts,

Watching over the inept.

This happens yet today

While office folks are away…

Security stands

As need demands,

Minding the store night and day!

Columbus Day I’ll work

Time -and-a half the only perk…

That, and quiet

You just can’t buy it,

We enjoy that with a smirk!

–J.E.C.

TURKEYS AND DEER…OVER HERE!

Foraging in-between,

Highway and exit ramp seen…

Acorns and grass

Singly en mass,

Turkeys and deer in-between!

RIDDLE-BROOK GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT

RIDDLE-BROOK–where we live,

You’re on your own if no one will drive…

My wife and a friend

Play SCRABBLE TO WIN,

The most fun they can derive!

ANOTHER APPOINTMENT?

Forgetful is he lately,

Gently reminding needs he…

One more he forgot

Among a whole lot,

Calendar posting?–not he!

–J.E.C.

INTIMACY AMONG THE OLDER

Google Image…not of the author and his wife!

The subject is hard to admit,

Some things, we’re over it!…

Bodies change

Hormones rearrange,

Some body parts have quit!

Holding hands and lip kisses,

Thrilling electric charge this is…

Just being near

Brings a teaar,

Happy to be near the Missus!

She sleeps better when I

Choose to sit quiet nearby…

Passion’s nearly gone

But love ventures on,

Striving toward that sweet bye-and-bye.
