FROM THE DARK SIDE…

A DEATH STAR* on a kid’s wall,

In terms of “dark” ain’t anything at all…

Let’s “talk turkey”

My wife thinks I’m quirky,

‘Cause I think the dark meat’s a ball!

–Jonathan Caswell

*The DEATH STAR, of course, belongs to the Empire–antagonist of The Rebellion,

in the STAR WARS series of movies.

SIXTY TWO AND KISSABLE!

Today she turns sixty-two,

We weren’t sure what to do…

Filling the rafters

With happy ever afters,

She’s a two-footed blessing–HOW TRUE!

GOING WESTERN?

GOING WESTERN?

My latest E-bay package

Was a pair of RS-1s,

Was happy to get them

On a shorter bidding run…

My wife picked up the “Sante Fe”

And wondered if I’d be

Modeling a line out West,

A different role for me?

I tried to explain to her

I just liked RS-1’s,

And these were the best I bought

And the last ones…

She liked the “Frisco” one as well

It was easier to see,

So maybe I WILL build west

To Albuquerque!

MY WIFE IS SO AMAZING!

MY WIFE IS SO AMAZING!

Oh, how she puts up with me,

Our love deeper than the sea…

The outcome of course

Is a tour de force,

Of mutual security!

Why she still loves me so,

Only the Lord would know…

Realizing that we

Run differently,

And together go.

A part of learning God’s grace

Is looking on her face…

Neither of us

Are perfect, thus

We allow each other space.

EVICTED AGAIN

EVICTED AGAIN

She had a tired look,

This Aide who seriously took…

My wife on

To straight up, “Mawn”,

Told me, in effect, to “book”.*

One more bag of trash,

Disposed of with panache…

Until they were through

What they had to do,

When I returned I could crash.

So gave them extra time

By posting more on-line…

Apartments small

Won’t fit us all,

My wife needs her chance to shine!

–Jonathan Caswell

* “to book”….to go (away) somewhere else

YOGURT ON MY SWEATER

YOGURT ON MY SWEATER

With yogurt on my sweater,

I couldn’t show any better….

My wife’s loving care

For how I fare,

Drawn with cords of love, not a fetter!

ANOTHER PHONE CALL

ANOTHER PHONE CALL

Getting to know the numbers

Of call that come in…

Saw that certain number

And knew she fell again.

She herself called in next,

Wondering what to do…

I said, go to the hospital

And that’s where I’ll meet you!

She seems to get weaker

And more unstable nights…

Her lifeline*  loudspeaker

Summons angel flights.

After work I’ll go and see

What my be done…

I’d hate to lose or suffer change

In my beloved one.

–Jonathan Caswell

* lifeline…one of a number of that general brand and machine type.
