Chef - Dad

If he were my Dad, he would be the best.
A distinguished Chef that taught me to cook.
An ever loving Heart, beats in his chest.
His spare time , he writes a Poetry book.
When its done; as a Poetry Family; We should all take a look.
I have a distinct advantage, in the Culinary Arts.
“Dad” was a self made Chef : Loved by Culinary : ALL.
You have an distinct advantage, with your Ever Loving Hearts.
We climb the stairs of Poetry; to the Poet Laureate’s Hall.
We spend half of Eternity, reading Poems upon the wall.

He's a teacher, a Chef, a poet; a husband that Loves his Wife.
Allthough she now lives in Heaven, as she has for forty years.
His heart has found someone new; that has given him new life.
Barbara Jean, whom I call Mom; has dried up past forlorn tears. 
He is a man deeply in love with everyone he knows, he loves all his peers.

This is a Quintain I wrote for Francine Roberts Contest "  English Quintain Contest
Dedicated to "Dad  and Mom" Harry D. Johnson aka Harry, HG, Liege and Barbara Jean
Gorlick aka BG, Mom I wrote this Dec. 3 I added the third stanza today Dec. 14

Hi Kenny-Thanks so much for your comments-LOL about your friends all being crazy! I have many crazy ones too! Don't worry about the forms...once you know how to write a poem (which you do) you can just 'read up' on the new forms. I had no idea how to do a kimo until I read it the other day. Then, you just think of idea and tailor the syllable count, etc. You'll be just fine....the more you do the easier it gets...I promise. Love, Natalie

Hey, I see you got on here. HOW cool and how nice to learn about HG in this poem. I had no idea that HG is living with Barbara??!!! I knew they liked each other. Gosh, I wish Barbara would tell me these things!! (are they getting married?)

Chef (HG, Harry) would love to ask the Question. the answer - ???

I absolutely love this Kenny! I am more than happy to help you whenever you need...but I am far from an expert. I am best w/ writing short stories, etc. I went to college and have a journalism degree so am more apt for press/magazine. I only started writing poetry in July. I think you may need someone more experienced, like Francine or Carolyn...but I am more than happy to help if I am able. Much luck to you in the contest. Don't forget to edit and add the date :)
