Cupid’s Miscue by Rick Stephen

Cupid's Arrows by Perrault Leon Jean Basile

Cupid’s Arrows by Perrault Leon Jean Basile

Cupid’s Miscue

My love I found when young and stupid,
an easy target for a careless Cupid

Who never did take the blame
for the results of his errant aim

A lovely lass and a handsome guy
each having caught the other’s eye

Went not unseen, so Cupid’s arrow flew,
found her heart and true love grew

And having little time to waste
his next shot made with reckless haste

Turning, drawing, the arrow flew
this time though his aim not true

Cupid then left without a care
to find and match another pair

Not waiting long enough to see
his arrow miss and then strike me

Leaving she and I both standing there
the victims of his grievous error

With hopes for love looking grim
since I love her and she, him

“Melvin … bad, bad kitten!” – a new children’s book by Sannel Larson

melvinIf you’ve visited my blog more than once, you’ve no doubt seen that I’ve featured the poetry of my dear friend Sannel Larson a number of times. Well, I’m doing that again but today with a great sense of excitement as I’m proud to announce Sannel’s first children’s book, “Melvin … bad, bad kitten!” is now available on Amazon. Hold on, you say! This is a poetry blog. Aren’t you supposed to be writing about poetry?

Well, I am! Sannel’s book is written in rhyming verse and details the adventures, or should I say misadventures, of the adorable and mischievous Melvin. Sannel also created the beautiful, colorful illustrations in the wonderful children’s book that would be a perfect gift for the little ones in your life. So, I encourage you to check out Sannel’s new book.

You can also learn a bit more about Sannel on her Amazon Author Page or by visiting her blogs, Sannel in a Nutshell and Sannel’s World of Poetry. You won’t be disappointed to visit either but, better yet, visit both!

Time for a laugh or two …

Every so often, we all need to take a break and laugh a little if for no other reason than to release some tension. I came across this during a recent web surfing session. I laughed my ass off reading it. I’m not sure if I was laughing because, well, some of these are pretty feeble attempts or if I recognized myself in some of them. Still, enjoy. Laugh out loud, if you can. Let off some steam. You’ll feel better, if you do!

Beaten by Five Minutes by Rick Stephen


Beaten by five minutes
it’s the story of my life
who knew five short minutes
could cut so like a knife

You can miss so very much
when you’re late to start
in three hundred little seconds
you can lose your hopeful’s heart

In that brief space of time,
that handful of mere seconds
someone else can swoop in
and you could finish second!

Don’t hesitate, don’t think twice
don’t even take the chance
don’t hold back a tiny bit
when it comes to sweet romance

So in a race for a heart
don’t be the late beginner
being second’s same as last
there can only be one winner!
