Two Lenses



		As one by the outdoors beguiled,
		I loved climbing trees as a child.
		I'd perch way up high
		sing loudly and try
		to outdo the birdsI was wild!

		Now I'm never high in the trees.
		No notes from me float on the breeze.
		I'm no longer small
		and agileI'd fall!
		I climb to my choir seat with ease.

February 13, 2016


For Sara Kendrick's Two Lenses contest--requiring two stanzas only, comparing/contrasting how the poet felt about a childhood activity back 
then and how he/she feels about it now

My Childhood

My childhood
Limicolous nomic but limpid or propper,
Hard lines limb, non violent and passage stopper,  
Vegetarian, nonchalant, compliance or observant,
Prepotent prepositor, jannock jangler and importunate copper.
Metoposcopist, mettled, nonplus politer or politic,
Demonstrator, protagonist, receiver or a fair way to chopper.
My childhood, credible, conceivable or appreciator,
Sagacious, replenish, reprobator and republished hocker
My childhood was a joker

Ode--or what's owed--to men

Shots served by Anthony’s Weiner
Are wrong and reflect bad demeanor
These tweets indiscrete
His wife Uma did cheat
And she'll take him to the cleaner 


Author's note:  My wife and I were talking about the fact that the congressman needs to feel 
as though he is loved by many women This is likely because he suffers from low self 
esteem A problem from childhood that was never addressed--just undressed.

ornament memories

I love decorating the Christmas tree
And lingering in ornament memories
A snowman I made
Back in 2nd grade
Reminds me of childhood glee and snow dreams

Looks Are Pert Nigh Everything

An old childhood chum named Red Booker
Fell in love and was married to quite a looker
She caused men to stare
But ole Red didn't care
Because everywhere she went, he took her!

Little creek

Little creek with crickets sound,
reminiscing the evenings I was bound,
of the girls that I have kissed,
of the childhood I now miss

Little creek with crickets, my son has found

Looks Are Pert Nigh Everything

An old childhood chum named Red Booker,
Fell in love and was married to quite a looker.
She caused men to stare,
But old Red didn't care,
Because everywhere she went, he took her.

Christmas Memories

                    
       Christmas Memories
                                  From childhood memories I recollect 
                                   I asked for bi-cycle as birthday present.
                                            Dad put just a clause,
                                              ‘Let it be Santa Claus.
                                 He will bring the gift: A grand event.
                                
                                False hope gave simultaneous jerk and shock.
                              ‘How could Santa Claus put cycle inside sock?
                                           Dad told ’Neither to worry,
                                           Nor to feel sorry.
                            Cycle to be put beside sock by twelve O’clock.

                              Enjoyed Christmas Eve and happily slept.
                             Rejoiced to see cycle beside sock on day next.
                                      Christmas Carol, I sang
                                      And the door- bell rang
                             Someone produced cycle-bill for payment         
                             
                         I rushed to Dad ‘Santa has come in disguise!
                           He claims moneyDo you realize?’
                                  Dad was prompt to say
                                  ‘Later,Santa will surely pay.	
                        Messenger has come to apologize.’
