A Poem A Day Keeps The Viewers Away

2 Nov

I’m taking part in the Poetic Asides November Poem A Day Challenge. We can post our poems on the site so I’m not inflicting them on my non-poeting readers. However, I just wrote this one and I’m so pleased with it I wanted to share it with you.

The prompt was ready to start or not ready. A monostich is a one-line poem.


Monostich For The Selfish Lover

Ready or not, here I come…



Fings Ain’t What They Used To Be

Thinking it would be nice to have some photos to illustrate my poems on my other blog, I’ve been rifling the records.  We have so many photographs that I had to take them out of albums and put them into index boxes.  I’ve scanned some in for the other blog, but I thought I would share a couple now.

Ditto for her
