'Poetic Pizza' Pieces For PoemHunter Pal...
Kanav Justa suggested I share my pizza with PoemHunter friends, but I’ve found, when trying to send real pizza, my wife’s computer bends. So you PoemHunter friends will have to settle for.... slices of my thoughts. You’ll have to settle for “Poetic Pizza” Pieces my mind and pen have wrought.
I'll Quit Poetry..... [my PoemHunter co...
Sitting quietly in my too-fancy chair, I hear classical music now fill the air. [It’s a rare evening during which my wife and I don’t a movie share.] Now the music’s stopped coming from down the hall; I did enjoy it. I believe my wife’s at her computer in the “office”; she, the music, did employ it

My odometer turned over again. I’m a youthful 65. To my delight I was given 3 fine gifts; gifts that were alive! We had gone hiking up a hill, overlooking the nearby ocean. I heard a call from above us, and saw three birds in motion.

I plan to start a 'showcase' on my PoemHunter site, which will NOT be a contest; no need for a fight, but instead a place where once a month I shall post.. a poem of your choosing, which you would like read most.

I saw a lonely cloud one day. It looked small beyond the Bay. I tried to find a second and failed, even though I looked each way.

If, like me, you've had the problem: 'wrong verification code', I have a suggestion for you. May I be so bold? When on Poemhunter.com your message or comment fails to be sent, and your frustration and anger at that failure you desperately need to vent,

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. At least that is what my Ma used to say. I’ve got no insurance, and I don’t work too hard, BUT there are lots of apples.... in my Ma’s backyard.
Beware Of Scams In Sheep's Clothing........
My PH friend John Westlake... does care about us all. He worries we'll be scammed, that we'll 'drop the ball'.

Bananas are nutritious for you and me ….and oh so cheap. I've nothing bad to say about them; no, not one peep! In banana splits, ice cream's on top; banana is underneath. They're super easy to peel, AND ….to eat, you need no teeth.
A Bloody Riot............ [Football/Socc...
Today’s News said fans tore a referee to pieces. I wonder if they tore..... along the ref’s creases. But it wasn’t just random fanatic-fan strife, since the ref first killed the fans’ player..... with a knife.

Being Old: The Advantages And Disadvantages....... [(see the title): Long; personal? ; humour? ]
For my poems, my friend Valsa George has a hunger.
She’s over fifty, but, compared to me, she is younger.
She suggested I write about ‘the advantages of being old’.
It’s a challenge, but, Valsa, on this idea you have sold......
I – The Advantages
Retirement income though you’re done working.
[Why, now, are some of you readers smirking? ]
No alarm clocks waking you for your job.
More time to lie around home.....like a slob.
No more eight hour shifts sitting or standing.
No boss watching you closely, being demanding.
No more ...
