Prom Invitation 2010: Romantic ConTEXTing Limerick

June 3, 2010

My son asked a girl to his senior prom. As he did so, I wrote him this limerick. (No, he didn’t use it!)

“Will you go to Prom with me?”/
begs for romantic poetry./
Just for fun,/
forward this on/
and complete the linguistic symmetry!

An Evening Together Invitation: Romantic ConTEXTing Poem

March 21, 2010

Popcorn./
Quilt warm./
Your sofa and TV./
My funny DVD./
My hands; “those feet”./
White wine sweet./
Chocolate./
Let’s not wait./
8 oh 5 to 9:30./
U and me./
2day./
OK?

Last Time is Charming for a Short Prince: Romantic Poetry

August 3, 2009

The gauntlet was thrown:
a poet sought!
But yet,
invitations of meeting
were deleted with no regret;
they went for naught.

yet again, another time
he casts his bread
upon her swirling waters;
leaves his rhyme
in her head,

and asks:
What is she searching for?
Really?
An intellect to match her own?
With me she’s home.

A writer, witty and bright?
I’m that (if I can avoid being trite).
Six foot oh oh oh
I’m the wrong height for her stilettos.

(Sigh).
Is that the only reason why
I’m not the guy?
(Sigh).
