We are the three together

My father went one third,
I can reach half of the rest.
My son will avail the goal.

Awakening, from Light Cards Series

Awaken the children
slowly...
carefully...
or they may appear
startled! Feeling
little more than shadows
frantic with light....

A 4 line poem for H

I know a little girl named Hannah
A pretty, bashful and quiet child
But when she goes to visit Nanna
She eats too much chocolate and goes wild!

JUMPER

Judiciously I pick
just the right colours.
Judging by the size of
Jeanie my cute grandchild.
Joy to knit for her in
January chills a
jumper warm as this one.

GRANNY

Gone from my humble home.
Girls have finally grown.
Getting much older now.
Great expectations here.
Granny in waiting me.
Good knitting baby things.
Great for babysitting.

Final Adieu

Final Adieu

Let another sun set,
Let another flower wilt,
Let another autumn cast its gloom,
Let another tear role,
As ye part, and bid
The final adieu.

Indoor Tent

Inside the little indoor tent,
H and H and Nana went
To sit there cozy, warm and snug;
It felt like an extended hug.

A private world we did create
With nothing there to aggravate – 
My grandkids (ages 1 and 3)
And happy (but exhausted) me.

Personal Memories

There was a time when you sat on my knee
And listened to my stories  ardently.
Each word that I read, in my eyes you'd see.
Now that you've growed up and become literary
You show me the wonder of what growin' up can be.

Short Grandchild poem by Janice Canerdy| Details |

Today's Vocabulary Words Are Spoon and Moon

	My grandma taught me new meanings of “spoon” and “moon.”
	Grandpa and she, as teens, would cuddle and kiss (spoon).
	Apart, they’d mope around idly (moon), almost swoon!

Tango Trochee


Lovers chance a tango dance;
passion lights the dark.
Swaying bliss, a stolen kiss,
music ignites sparks.

Romance swirls with hand-held twirls;
eyes gaze with desire.
Red wine lips and tango’s dips 
set the floor on fire.

Short Grandchild poem by Al Parry| Details |

Hugs

Teenage Girls clad in the latest fashions,
Do it whenever they meet,
Grown men aren't afraid to show some passion,
When their team's comeback is complete,
They can say hello, they can say goodbye,
And anything inbetween,
If you open your arms and crack a smile,
There is nothing that a hug cannot mean.

Short Grandchild poem by Kurt Philip Behm| Details |

My Search Begins

The house is quiet,
  the children have gone

My beard unruffled,
  memories grow long

The toys still scattered,
  where last they played

Their love now buried,
  inside the maze

The house is quiet,
  but deep within

Their laughter hides,
—my search begins

Young Old Bull

My, he really is something, my egotistical friend -
Enigmatic and choleric he will be till the very end;
Youth, the loss of it, causes him no alarm, he's just so cool,   
Outwardly, creaky bones and all, he still acts like a young bull.
Keep going, old boy, I pray, till the next grandchild comes your way.

Computer Problems

I had a senior moment
Computer I was on
I was on the Face Book
Then the bloody page was gone

My Grandson came to my rescue
Cause me I had no clue
He sat down and worked it out
Me, I did not know what to do

Now computer is back on form
I am so pleased, am I
If it happens once again
I will call this clever guy
