EASTER AFTERNOON, 2015

EASTER AFTERNOON, 2015

(Eastern U.S.)

Feauring sprinkles, light snow

(When will this winter go?)…

Dinner’s in oven

With extra loving,

That our Lord doth show.

Friends and neighbors pass through

This Common Room, happy to…

Call a hello

As they go

Back to families, I’d assume.

Service was good today,

My singing voice cracked along the way…

Congregation knew the tune

And I was back soon,

Praising God in worship outlay.

Bunnies decorate tables,

Replaced when folks are able…

Patriotism next,

Memorial Day–summer treks–

Coming home folks are so full…they’re not able!

(He means…an “Easter Feaster”!)

SLEEP “TEXTING”

SLEEP “TEXTING”

Some folks in trouble deep,

Because they text in their sleep…

Also a few

Change channels too,

On TV–is that finger creep?

BLOGGER’S BEDTIME PRAYER

BLOGGER’S BEDTIME PRAYER

 

Now I lay me down to sleep,

I pray the Lord my blogs to keep…

If I die after I awake

I pray that one more poem I make

(and blog!)

VARIATION ON A CHILDREN’S PRAYER

 

Now I lay me down to sleep,

I pray the Lord my vision keep…

Away from things that would upset,

Get me down or make me fret…

Send me wise and helpful dreams

Because reality isn’t all it seems!!!

 

AMEN!

 

–Jonathan Caswell

 

ONWARD—UPWARD!!

ONWARD—UPWARD!!!

 

Last night a poet called himself a horse’s ass,

After sleep and conversation he found “this too, will pass”…

He talked with the friend

That he thought might end

The friendship, and his worry was mostly gas.

SLEEPING WITH TEDDY BEARS

SLEEPING WITH TEDDY BEARS

 

He’s sleeping with a couple teddy bears,

Sitting near the pillow over there…

His wife is in her recliner

Thinking it would be kinder

To leave her pillow on the bed there.

She has trouble breathing lying down,

That’s why her husband sleeps with furry brown…

She sleeps in her chair

With the TV blaring there,

But loves it when her hubby hangs around.

HE WRITES ANYTIME!

HE WRITES ANYTIME!

 

Off to bed he creeps,

Falls into bed and sleeps…

It’s been a long day

Segmented away,

His disjointed schedule keeps.

Not often is he taken in

With total exhaustion…

But falls behind

In the daily grind,

After losing his vigor and vim.

He writes whenever he can,

The time isn’t always planned…

When he can’t sleep

He’ll get up and reap,

The stories he’s written by hand.
