Does It Matter

Posted by MFishProfile 07/22/21 at 03:48PM Humor See more by MFish

Does it matter
when I miss writing
on a page, as my
hands are a tremble?
A volunteer movement,
what ever it means,
when your hand will shake
if your grip is loose.
A staccato of noise,
a rattling plate,
to see the movement,
of shimmy and shake.
Nothing to be concerned about
my Doctor states.
It's just a reaction,
so do not fear,
it will still be there
the following year.

A Rawness

A rawness,
a rasp,
crept from
his throat,
using his voice
when he first awoke.
A pain
deep within
was all
which he felt
in spite
of those,
who watched
from place
quite safe.
No matter
the time,
no matter
from where,
if you knew
or weren't
even there.
Say not
to me,
one word
or two
about this
rambling bit
of adieu.

If I

If I mangle
your mango,
is it mangocide?
Stupid the words,
still I tried
to make this verse
become justified.

Risking being obtuse
I would call it mango abuse
But of course there is no use
So I will call a truce
To not be a victim of abuse

Mental Floss

Posted by MFishProfile 07/02/21 at 06:23PM Humor See more by MFish

Mental floss, a string of words,
running through my head.
No matter, the word choice,
it will run through this porous,
brain as if salt were present.
I cannot control the blandness
of the words written,
and I watch them swirl
into the old mind of an uncontrollable
muse. Sorry to say but the mind is mine.

A Piece of String

A piece of string,
a length of twine,
a skank of thread,
a woven line.
A stitch or two
a time to bind,
a soul, yours
a soul mine.

Thank you my friend. The brain cells have been a little rusty. But that's good.

If I Say

Posted by MFishProfile 06/16/21 at 06:44AM Humor See more by MFish

If I say, "I have read,"
it sounds like head,
or I will read,
sounds like deed
or perhaps a reed.
By adding a "Y",
the word becomes ready
and is pronounced like "Betty."
It does not mean I've read,
more like I'm ready to read.
Funny this English language is.

If I say retreat
or turn back.
Try to release,
letting it go
or redo,
do it again
and repeat,
do it once more
or reword,
supply a new word.
How about reduce"?
making it smaller
or use resize.
I like remain,
staying here
or remaining.
A different meaning,
the word result.
How something did end.
Then remember,
capturing an event.
to live once more
or use resurface,
to change a cabinet
or floor.
to see it again
or resow,
spreading more seed,
or replant
a new deed.

Good poem. Reminds me of when I had Japanese students living with us who were here to learn English and trying to explain the rules and all the exceptions. "how come" is a challenge to explain...

Thank you, Loy. So many times I don't know where these thoughts come from.

Never Make Passes

Posted by MFishProfile 06/13/21 at 11:14PM Humor See more by MFish

Never make passes
at girls who wear glasses.
I dated a girl.
A girl who wore glasses.
She was a beauty
and she wore glasses.
I tried to give her a kiss.
She tried to do the same.
Raising her head,
as I dropped mine,
my nose struck the bridge
of her glasses,
making a loud noise,
which woke the masses.
This is why you
never make passes
at girls who
wear glasses.
