I didn’t notice
him walk
into the restroom

I was talking
to My Mother-in-Law
outside the restrooms
when I decided
I should go too

On Missing You Too Soon

by HemmingPlay

I find myself imagining
how the differences will
play out…
The unfamiliar,
lengthening silences,
stretching into the dusk.
The way dust devils will
gather in corners, waiting
for something that
will never come.

Poetry Challenge: Valentine Poem

First selfie - on board the Spirit – Version 2

Cupid’s arrow may for most
be secret on this day
when anonymity prevails
in messages we say
But for me the message is the same
with thirty-eight cards done
‘I love you more and more each year
For me there’s only one’

To My Love

by markfahmy


The moment I saw you, was the moment the butterflies in my stomach flew
The moment I saw you, I met the reality of a dream I once drew
The moment I saw you, I saw my reality anew

Your presence makes my heart leap in disbelief
My puzzle pieces have finally found their matching piece

A “Wifely Motivation” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

I have been trying to be a good husband and do all the things that my wife asks me to do. However, I must admit, I sometimes fall short. To quote Bill Murray as Carl Spackler, assistant greens keeper, in Caddyshack, sometimes “I (am) unavoidably detained.” By sports on television, playing with dog, potchka-ing around in the kitchen, writing limericks….

A “Christmas Present” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

I have such a wonderful wife.
Her gift giving was especially rife.
I got a schnauzer headcover
I really love her…
It was the best Christmas of my life.

You Won’t Be There

by Emily Page

You won’t be there, I know, but
Anticipation burns.
The thought of maybe seeing you
My aching heart it yearns.

You won’t be there, I know, but
At this Christmas do,
I know my heart will wander from
My loved ones, friends, to you.

A Woman Soul

by Venkat

God’s way to arrange

With His ambit and range

Chose to make a change

He made a woman soul

Without blemish or mole

A beauty that is whole

The sparkle of her verve

Stands the test of nerve

No doubt, No reserve
