OFF THE CUFF

Hi Ken.
Off the cuff explains exactly how my mind works,
I don't mind telling you that off the cuff.
Thanks for posting.


Only Problem with Me

2022-01-22
Told one fiesty diabetic octogenarian who was waiting to go,
What I heard on radio. If you have diabetes, it would knock
Seven years off your life! She laughed at that.
Your story reminded me of that. Thanks for posting.


THE FIGHTER

2022-01-21
I always wonder what tree I would be?
Either a son of a birch or a son of a beech.
Think I'd like to be a idle flower tree,
Looking out for others as they have done for me.
You had me at rusting thoughts and rotten feelings,
What a lovely poetic line


Stairway To Heaven

ANDREW WINDSOR (Completed)

Yes ken.
Maybe he could play the scarecrow,
In a remake of wizard of Oz.
If I only had a brain.


Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Dr Martin Luther king,
One of many that spoke up for all

Greatly loved greatly missed.

Death of the doodle

2022-01-14
Maybe you could start a petition, save the doodles.
That great russian philanthropist ivercold used to order
A bowl of doodles. Even me mum used to shout
Come on stop doodling about. Even one of my cousin's
Caught the doodle bug during the war.....

Good morning Afrodite, Sun peeking through clouds.
On this cold new day. Being ordinary is the norm,
When you can't afford the heating to keep you warm.

THE LONGEST DAY

2021-12-14
Why do you doubt yourself,
There's no need to guard.
The gates of hell night and day,
When it's time a chariot Will come.
To take you the other way,
That Will be many years from this date.
Is not a trek through Thermopylae,
Something that you would hate?.
Put your penny's away, This I know is true.
The ferryman will never come for you.
P.s. Liked the poem. X


A Hymn at Compline

2021-12-14
I was looking for amen
At the end of this
Lovely prayer
Merry Christmas

Litany for A-----

2021-12-12

I told her it was an Italian suppositorie.
Still waiting for her to clout me,

Could have beens.
Thanks for sharing.

PRISON

2021-11-24
I find that life's a struggle
Death grips those whose
Life's are in a muddle
Your writing's great
So even if you're minds
Feels a little befuddled
So please except from me
One big poetic cuddle


I AM A THOUGHT

2021-11-22
Good morning Afrodite.
My, I probably shouldn't have said it,
This is the first poem that I have read,
That truly spoke to me as I read it.
Your written word is more than fine,
I'm not to sure about your last line,
Let me think about it.

Did you know when people
Stick them down a plug hole

If only we could do that to some people


The Caged Bird that Sang to Freedom

2021-11-20
A lovely poem about the atrocities
Committed by a bunch of moronic
People Who think there always right
No matter the cost of human
Suffering. Thanks for posting

Of her poems but I get
To emotional at life treated
With no regard
Thanks again Zoya zaidi


NIGHT FLOWER

If you were a flower
Which one would it be
There's no point in asking
I've already gone to seed


SATURDAY NIGHT

Some wounds never heal just tears
As you fall into a destructive mood
Another guilty day not yours just theirs.
The more I read the more I understand
I like to read your writing
Was this your cunning plan


The Sound of Tiny Feet

2021-11-14
Two adopted children have come into our lives
We and there new parents love them dearly
Shame there mother didn't feel the same
After their dad died. We all deal with grief
Differently. Theirs many more out that deserve homes.
It's another way to complete your family
As for your writing's I like them

Back in the Day

2021-11-05
Thoroughly enjoyed this.
There weren't many happy memories
In my child hood still looking for the
Great escape song though.
Pickle I have a pickle, but it's a dollar
To a nickel, that when I'm kissing,
Go on I'm kissing.
She is the one girl for me.

The moon of wisdom
Is loved by the warmth
Of the sun
And the coolness
Off space.
