And now from the lowbrowed side of the house.  I like  a little book of verse called Reflections on a Gift of Watermelon Pickle.  Got it when I was 11, nice variety.  I also favor Robert W. Service.

Wow.. This group has grown considerably since I started it. I have been absent from writing poetry since school started in August, though I must admit that the stresses and heart-aches I have faced these last few months would have been aided well by some reflective writing..

Hats off to you Gentlemen for validating my opinion to create a page where we can come together and write, reflect, criticize, and more importantly, grow, simply by the use of words and feelings.

No, I love being "distracted" by grandchildren. They keep reminding me what is important for me and that is, life is to be shared and it is always messy...but that is the fun of it. The time I spend sharing my life with them...mentoring them and passing the torch of family life on to the next generation (actually the second generation removed from my generation) is a sacred and honored task. Bring 'em on...yes, a poem is germinating. But until that one is birthed I'll post one from past years.

Titus,

No, we are NOT dead, yet...life's persistent questions are probably taking up time to answer, e.g. in the middle of the younger grandson's diaper change, I realize that the handy wipes are in the bathroom instead of on the changing table, and he has just had the bowel movement of the century; or, the string puppet I just made out of peanuts, strings, and Popsicle sticks is now a wad of tangled thread; or just as I'm checking in with AoM at this moment, the same grandson comes into the study to show me that he's taken the keys that wind the alarm clock and dropped them into the heat register...Ummm! I think I have a poem for this...later....

Linger and look at me

openly share with me

all your truth and soul,

for once show yourself

 

I write new words, again to

say how distant I find you

tepid in response to my heart

tries to lure you if you dare.   

Comment by Justin Wollmann on March 22, 2011 at 12:12am

A person that succeeds in life is one who will understand

that Death is the only person who has the upper hand 

So be smart, be generous, and keep your body well

That is how you keep Death one more day in hell.
