Jerry Reynolds

Active Messaging


Luxury senior apartment renting
requiring often calm and placidity.
Can turn on a dime, I the first admitting.
Ladies in the street gaily talking with fluidity,  
the wife of Tacky Bob among them, detected
Thomas C., lying in the grass.
Tom’s walker had swiftly disrupted
and delivered him flat of his ass.
The only assistance they could find-
freelance Jon, unloading his infamous truck.
The parking wars did quickly unwind
after Jon’s stroke, of karmic luck.
That old saying about home and life
A happy home has a happy wife.

    One only has to read your poem to know that there isn’t an event that cannot be written about, very entertaining indeed.

              There are poetic moments in every day, write them down edit them later.

              • Accidental Poet

                Exactly Jerry. Write it down as it comes to you. That's what I always do. Then rereading it and editing as necessary.
