THERE'S A NIP IN THE AIR

The north wind is blowing and it’s turning cold I’m feeling quite chilly I guess I’m getting old I’ve finally dug out my sexy thermal vest It’s snug and warm and covers my hairy chest It’s silky and soft and causes no ripples Hides my boobies and covers my nipples Jan Allison 15th October 2014

Don't know what I expected, but this tickled me. The title is so misleading. Here i'm expecting some flowery verbage and what a surprise. You be cool. Love, daver

Maurice took so long between his comments I had time to pluck and wax lol. The truth is it was so bitterly cold last night I did have to dig my vest out - my thermals were a birthday present from my parents last year - it was the only useful thing i could think of having - never thought I'd ever wear thermals but it can be so icily cold here in the wind - oh boy they keep you warm :-) hugs Jan xxx
Date: 10/15/2014 9:12:00 PM
!!!!WOW!!!! I can't believe that I forgot to mention how creative the title is. There's a nip in the air. So like nip refers to it was cold out but also as a short form of the word nipple. So that is like so creative. There are poets all over the world right now getting calls from their publishers being raked over the coals for not having come up with it.

LOL Maurice at least you haven't lost your sense of humour unlike me. Oh I could write a poem called 'Ive lost my sense of humour' To me the title is just as important as the body of the work - how else can you draw someone in to read your poem. Thanks for making me smile again my friend:-) hugs jan xx
Date: 10/15/2014 9:08:00 PM
Bahaha, glad to see you have your humour back. Love it.

Its taken a few days for me to even pick up my pen Brenda I have been so demoralised - the site is a forum for all types of poetry and no one form should be considered better than another neither should the opinion of one person be allowed to have such a detrimental effect on those here who write for pleasure - oh and for fun which is so so lacking on the site. Hugs Jan xx

Oh Jan, Tim read this to me over the phone, and I laughed so freakin' hard! Haha had to come and tell ya that, you're great, sophiticated writes I miss luv ya xx

Shakespearean Verse at its best. If my memory is correct, A Comedy Of Errors, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Nights Dream... COMEDIES written in what form?

There is nothing simple about your writes. You are a brilliant poet. The contests prove it. You have written successfully in umpteen of styles and you always nail it.

Each to their own Maurice, but that is a form I do not feel comfortable attempting so I will stick to my own simple writes that I get pleasure from creating:-) Hugs Jan xx
