Questions That Come With Age

by HemmingPlay


The clock… relentless.
What’s my allotment going to be?
How to make the best of it?
How to keep dignity,
avoid a failure of imagination,
avoid self-pity….

“Savor each moment…”
Yes, well that’s a cliché.
I know what’s coming,
What I’ve lost for good.
The trick is to
Savor these, too,
With a little grace.

No lies in the mirror.
No false smiles.
No regrets.
No cruelties.
Kindnesses given
with no expectations.

There are enough
bitter herbs around.

One surprise smile is enough
to recharge a whole day.
Thank you, darlin’

School of the Electric Fence

by HemmingPlay

Photo by Richard Calmes

I suppose I knew this,
once upon a time,
but love is a little like
the electric fence I used to
crawl through to get to the woods.

You have to be cautious, not timid.

(I wouldn’t go so far as to agree with
Crosby when he said being with Joni was
like falling into a cement mixer.)

The Sneaker 外岩の詩

by Nick Anthony

Damselflies flutter about
Among the green, broad leafs
Above the mountain stream,
Darting through the river rocks
That make a natural bridge
To the mountain boulder field,
Where stone goliaths lie in wait.

Halfway up The Sneaker,
My love fights to hang on
To nothing more than a pebble:

Strong Women

by Judy E Martin

When it’s time to’ man up’

We are told to ‘grow  a pair’

Balls will make us stronger

But that’s not very fair!

Why are they so special?

To make us act so tough

In those awful moments

When life gets really rough

A Woman’s Prerogative Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

I have a friend who has a very wonderful purse and handbag collection. She has great taste and a great eye for fashion. My friend has been able to have all the great designers in her collection. I have had the fun and pleasure of accompanying her when she has been looking to add to the collection. I can’t see how having a little expertise in handbags can be a bad thing. And I still find it interesting that a wallet can cost more than half of the cars I had in college – a lot more!

A “Stupid Man” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

I was recently introduced to woman at a social engagement. We seemed to hit it off and during our conversation, I came to learn that she had a Facebook page. Since I use Facebook to build a platform to promote my limericks, I went to her Facebook page and sent her to a “friend request” so I could invite her to “like” the An Answer For Everything Facebook page.

An Answer For Everything – relationship courage

by Joel Kravitz

Having been married three times, there have been a few lessons that I have learned, some the hard way.

One of the most important ones has been that it is unrealistic to expect someone’s human nature to change and foolish to ask someone to change – best to love them just the way they are.

What defines our Beauty?


Am I my lips, my hair, 

Or my skin achingly fair?


Am I my eyes, my breasts

That wish to protest but succumb to contests?

What I Know About Women

by Joel Kravitz

What I Know About Women…
I Learned From You…
All the women I have been lucky enough to know.

Back when I was immature (last week)
And had urges to suppress,
I wanted to be a ladies man
And at times I would obsess.
It’s not all that it’s cracked up to be,
I’ve come to reassess.
I’ve tried to bat my baby blues
To get women to undress.
They’ve taught me when I go there…
Not to expect success.
But I’m a typical stupid man
So I keep trying, nonetheless.
I know next to nothing about women.

Watching the beautiful sights
Wiggle, jiggle and sway
As they walk on by
While i wait for a beauty
To arrive

As I ponder
the complexities of life
I cannot forget
the insanity of women
and all their
wonderful complications
