so self-quarantine, we're told we need to,

I'm old fashioned

I'm an old fashioned fellow

Sometimes it's hard to keep up
As the world rushes by,
And technology isn't...Read More

Tomorrow never came
tailspin, break up, lost love, love hurts,
Tomorrow we agreed—at our special place
Where we always had—our special dates.
The blooming park with spring in swing
Bring out the larks—making them sing.
On a wrought iron bench—waiting,
Fumbling a box that held a bond.
How to ask—will you respond?
I kept calm waiting by...Read More

Acrostic on Sanmati My Jewel
So precious, so dear, so exquisite grin
