Happy Holidays – with apologies

First, I wish all my readers, visitors, browsers a very happy holiday season – no matter what festivities you treasure. 

Next, I apologize for my lack of postings over these many weeks.  Unfortunately, personal family illness and related issues forced me to focus elsewhere.

Nevertheless, I scribble new Poetweetry ideas on napkins, envelopes and receipts. Look for some fun verses as well as special Christ, personal and animal poem cycles to come in the new year.

Thank you for your support and encouragement for the “new and improved” Poetweetry tweets and blog. I appreciate your time and interest so much!

Again, Happy Holidays and even more best wishes for a Happy and Peaceful New Year!

Inconveniences

 

My blindness inconveniences

a haboob intercepts noon

I cede chauffeur duty

Trip on innuendo

Prod w/contorted cane

that lacks Tiffany pearl

Rituals: At Thanksgiving Day

Happy Forgiving Day

distant kin

eat hearts out

Sudden death play-offs

tackle tribe rivalries

siblings ledger scores

Discard all leftovers

X-ploration?

FOR COMMERCIAL SPACE PIONEERS:
 

Daredevils breathe fire

Loop-the-loop

Around the world

in 90 minutes

Wing walkers watch warily

Will they storm the barn?

Or buy the farm?

Note: This poem is not about any candidate or political party, just a comment about the constant animus of the political process.

Audacity of hope, nope, cope, dope

grope, Europe, mope

interlope, Pope, fallop

trope, tightrope, misanthrope

Morning star crests

Cardinal chalks wind

Impulsive stem defies frost

Some obscure divinity ignites

& in God’s image

I create

3-2-1 RELAUNCH!

Thanks for your patience while I’ve tinkered with our Poetweetry site.

Hope you like the redesign. We may have to tighten up a few things as we go — you know how these webby things can get funky at times.

Please enjoy future poems, artwork and other posts.

Also, I’d love any feedback you might have about the redesign or Poetweetry in general.  Please feel free to comment after the post — or send me a private note via the “Contact” page above.

I will start out with reprint of one of my first posts that attempts to explain what Poetweetry is and is not.

Again, thank you for reading. Hope you enjoy. Glad we connect via the cyberwaves!

RIP in your beloved ocean 
 

Enough rock&dust shrines

Leave no deified relics

tomb photo ops

star dancing

Stay distant as Luna

Harbor in tranquil seas

of primordial dawn
