there once was a man in a bunker

who said, “I need to hunker”

he turned round and round

like an old basset hound

New Beginning

by jaybluepoems

Enrapt, her burgeoned soul arose,
born in diamond’s white draped hues,
birthed of summer’s countenance rent,

… and what may come anew.

It’s Bar and Bat Mitzvah time and that means lots of parties with dancing, so my mom sent me off to Carlos & Kay to learn how to trip the light fantastic. I am happy to say that I am glad she did. I can still do the same “jitterbug” steps I learned way back then and that are now being recycled as “swing dancing.” I know this because I have taken some swing dancing lessons with a friend and it was nothing more than a refresher course for me.

A “Wifely Motivation” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz
