CELEBRATING SONNET WRITING

CELEBRATING  SONNET WRITING

Sonnets–a distinct art form—

Keep deep-thinking hearts warm…

Schemes complicated

Are implicated,

Such is the sonnet norm.

–Jonathan Caswell.

ON AGING…THE SERIES?

ON AGING—THE SERIES?

He gets up at six or five,

A part of being alive…

He’ll achieve

The effort to breathe,

Before into bed again dive!

Watching Saturday westerns,

Roy Rodgers, black-and-white veterans…

The bad and good

Were understood,

Reality wasn’t mentioned.

To us kids it was a lark,

Playing cowboys in the park…

Older now

I realize how

Judgment and characters start.

Old Roy didn’t have street smarts

Unless they were hidden arts…

Few complications

In situations,

With singing before we.d part!

Up at the crack of dawn,

How long will this go on…

Til the hand finally slips

And loses its grips,

Then the one who grew up is gone!

–Jonathan Caswell

YOU ARE SO CUTE!

YOU ARE SOOOO CUTE!!!!

The Assistant said to us,

I assume it was a “plus”…

“You two are SO CUTE”

You and your wife suit,

Each other so well, she surely does!

A compliment—-probably so,

It was said kindly, we should know…

On the receiving end

It came from a friend,

But in which categories did we win for show?

The last time I said similar words,

The meaning was taken “adverse”…

For I got in trouble

For bursting a bubble,

My penalty could have been worse!

So my wife and I are CUTE,

Does it mean we have flair to suit…

Our ambulations

Or dressing for invitations,

Or joy in more healthy pursuits?
