That brought a smile to my face. Just don't leer. It's the kind of smile that will drive anyone away.
Smile Today (Poetry) - 8/28/2015 8:06:09 AM
I appreciate the philosophy that you share through your verses in this poem, George. I try to smile at everyone I meet even if some think I'm weird. ☻ Love and peace,
Smile Today (Poetry) - 8/28/2015 7:17:18 AM
turn that frown,
smile through life,
and the joys to be found.
Smile Today (Poetry) - 8/28/2015 5:36:22 AM
Very nice, George! Yes, smiles are contagious. Sandie summed it up!
Smile Today (Poetry) - 8/28/2015 2:26:03 AM
Smiles are contagious, and yes, they do make others around them happy as well. Great poem!

What time is lunch being served?
Chicken Soup (Poetry) - 8/24/2015 3:26:23 AM
lager beer is chilled but chicken soup goes hot. . . I would never waste my time for cooling it. . . I smell some drill flowing above the clear broth, and which is mandatory here. Cheers, alex
Chicken Soup (Poetry) - 8/24/2015 3:02:50 AM
Sounds good George. Maybe I will have some today.

Cooler Weather (Poetry) - 8/22/2015 11:35:23 PM
Cooler weather with sunshine is fine with me
Cooler Weather (Poetry) - 8/22/2015 9:45:11 PM
I remember the baseball days in the cow fields and swimming in the pond. I'm afraid I'm one of those hot weather people who don't like all the heavy winter clothing. (See Jane, warm is good - no clothes. Cold is bad...)
Cooler Weather (Poetry) - 8/22/2015 9:59:45 AM
I'm with Ron and Jane . . . Cool all the way!!
Treasure Chest (Poetry) - 8/22/2015 8:51:04 AM
Good for you, George!
Cooler Weather (Poetry) - 8/22/2015 8:28:59 AM
I'm with Jane. We came out of the tropics naked. Those of us of European origin lived through the Ice Ages wearing animal skins and a wood fire warming our noses and toes. I prefer warm, largely because of my temperature control damaged by spinal cord injury.
Cooler Weather (Poetry) - 8/22/2015 8:23:09 AM
I prefer the cooler weather as well. Thing is, I hate clothes. What should I do?
Labels (Poetry) - 8/21/2015 11:10:24 PM
Labels had always been misleading, living or non living things.
Labels (Poetry) - 8/21/2015 11:51:11 AM
The can should have said pork & beans,
That is of course if the can could speak,
Hopefully the pork therein was lean,
As they might help to hold you together,
As the beans will make you from the back end leak...-e-
Labels (Poetry) - 8/21/2015 7:02:45 AM
At least you found pork in that can.
Lucky you, it could've been spam.
Labels (Poetry) - 8/20/2015 7:43:20 AM
Chuckle, chuckle. What a pity. Last night I was served what was described as, "butter beans." As I ate them, I began to realize that this gift from, "a friend," was mislabeled because they acted and tasted like black-eyed peas and only looked like lima beans. And, there was no pork in sight until my bacon this morning… If you could call that bacon!
Labels (Poetry) - 8/19/2015 4:31:18 PM
Now, finish that can of beans, and go buy a lottery ticket. Heeeheee!!!
Labels (Poetry) - 8/19/2015 11:54:56 AM
True on both counts!
Labels (Poetry) - 8/19/2015 7:33:37 AM
Hah! Like some people are misleading, George. Hope you chewed that piece of pork ten times before ingesting it.

High Heels (Poetry) - 8/19/2015 5:29:19 AM
I like the way this one waks. That seam on her nylons is damn attractive, too. But I'm not sure exactly why. Maybe it's anticipation of garters to come.
High Heels (Poetry) - 8/18/2015 1:45:48 PM
So, that's the trick? Thanks, George!
High Heels (Poetry) - 8/18/2015 10:40:09 AM
Yah... but only when I dress up.

No Troubles (Poetry) - 8/18/2015 7:10:14 AM
There is nothing like being at the beach!
No Troubles (Poetry) - 8/18/2015 6:59:40 AM
If you're still doing it at your age, I would say that's what's keeping you so young!
And this could be a memory of mine because long before I learned how to swim, I was so skinny it was very easy for me to stay underwater. Only I did it in swimming pools, not at the beach or in the murky waters of lakes and rivers in those days. And, while I loved to fool people by popping up far from where I went in, I never upended people because I thought it was hurtful to those who couldn't swim very well and were scared of drowning.
No Troubles (Poetry) - 8/18/2015 6:49:09 AM
No mind for troubles,
as long as you're still making bubbles.

The past has passed. Like you wrote, all that is left is today and tomorrow. The past can teach us a lot, and you have garnered much from it.

Life is to be lived... let us not forget it.
In Review (Poetry) - 8/13/2015 8:07:50 AM
Let the past be the past
And not haunt the present.
Life is to be lived and forgot
Not reawakened and thought about.
Wise advice, George. Love and peace to you,
In Review (Poetry) - 8/13/2015 7:09:31 AM
So true, George! If we keep looking back to things that we can't change, it just going to hinder us when we want to move forward.

Reliving the past only brings heartache. I try to make each new day an adventure just waiting for me.

Really liked this George. A lot of wisdom here. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the past.

You've been wandering down the roads for many a year, but you never wavered in your course providing us insightful poems every day… Including this one.
Wanderer (Poetry) - 8/12/2015 7:17:32 AM
In wandering, I have found that I meet the most interesting people and see sights that are missed by the people who don't take the time to look and explore. I'm proud of you, George!
Wanderer (Poetry) - 8/11/2015 9:42:52 PM
Enjoy life as you roam... the Lord will take care if the rest.

For sure, George, I was a serious wanderer . . . My wandering days are finally over . . . Except in my mind . . .
Wisdom (Poetry) - 8/11/2015 3:47:07 PM
it's often wise to say nothing, but that’s not yet wisdom. The latter lies somewhere in the mid of the distance between what is in your heart and on the tip of your tongue, which is the heart’s external organ, according to TCM (traditional Chinese medicine). It comes to be that one’s wisdom is a physiological product; and it has sense. Cheers, alex
Wisdom (Poetry) - 8/11/2015 11:11:27 AM
There's so much truth in this one. Sometimes, wisdom is knowing what to say at proper time and place.
Wisdom (Poetry) - 8/11/2015 8:40:15 AM
Oh! So you have also noticed that some people talk needlessly
Wisdom (Poetry) - 8/11/2015 7:28:03 AM
May I quote you?-- "A closed mouth gathers no feet"
Wisdom (Poetry) - 8/11/2015 6:43:37 AM
Basic truism here.
No Heaven (Poetry) - 8/11/2015 6:42:06 AM
Like Lennon wrote, what if there, "was no heaven above us, no hell below…" Wouldn't it be a better world? I think so.
Wisdom (Poetry) - 8/11/2015 6:33:49 AM
So true George. Thanks.
Wisdom (Poetry) - 8/11/2015 6:25:33 AM

Crab Grass (Poetry) - 8/9/2015 8:35:51 AM
Crab grass grows green and fast,
and makes my lawn look shabby.
And even though it dies in the fall,
crab grass makes me crabby.
Crab Grass (Poetry) - 8/7/2015 5:44:35 PM
If they're green, then let them stay. Doesn't hurt the view.
Crab Grass (Poetry) - 8/7/2015 2:11:30 PM
Kudos on ur.lawn, mr. Carroll.. Maybe try an organic weed killer
Crab Grass (Poetry) - 8/7/2015 11:23:23 AM
You need to start planting weeds instead of grass...the kind of weeds that are smokeable, then everything will look rosy & no care will you have...-e-
Crab Grass (Poetry) - 8/7/2015 6:43:57 AM
Herbicides are, more and more, proving to be a bane and dangerous to the environment. The beautiful house I built in Atlanta in the woods didn't have a lawn at all (to my father's concern--shortly after that he had to sell the family cottage on the lake because he could, "no longer mow all that lawn.") and I used my mower to blow the pine needles off the long drive in the park like setting.
In the 33 years that I've lived here, I've never fertilized, insecticided, watered or weed killed my lawn and it has always survived freezes, droughts and other ills like very bad soil and is still looking very good while my neighbors, heavily engaged in the 3 sins above trying for the "perfect" green lawn have had to re-sod or have lots of weeds and other problems--strange?
My lawn goes brown in the wintertime, and in the spring, a lot of wild plants spring forth that have a variety of flowers, yellow, white, and blue. For many years I let them grow until my homeowner's association made me cut them by simply mowing. I have St. Augustine grass that is very tough and tolerant. After the spring mowing in late April or early May, it quickly crowds out all other grasses and starts to grow across all of my sidewalks requiring weekly weed eating because it is essentially, a weed.
Crab Grass (Poetry) - 8/6/2015 12:07:20 PM
Hey, if it's green, let it grow!
Crab Grass (Poetry) - 8/6/2015 11:12:48 AM

You are lucky to have family around. My travel difficulties and my family all over 1000 miles away makes it very difficult for me to get together with them.

To Love (Poetry) - 8/5/2015 2:38:15 AM
Lovely thought.. Most of us had been running around for perrsonal gain..
To Love (Poetry) - 8/4/2015 9:13:54 AM
Despite your striking extrication from a difficult situation called ‘love,’ one thing is clear to me from this, . . since love is not a ‘give-and-take,’ it is always a tragedy, this or that way :(( Cheers, alex

As the accused took his last breath
The Hangman's Rope (Poetry) - 8/2/2015 5:24:45 AM
The old, "eye for an eye." I sometimes regret that we have a legal system with laws made by lawyers prolonging the sentencing and incarceration of murderers, making it very expensive and time-consuming to deal with them. On the other hand, so many have been lynched for murder that thing didn't commit or were acting in self-defense.
And, as far as I know, hanging isn't used anymore except for suicide.
The Hangman's Rope (Poetry) - 8/1/2015 9:10:17 PM

The Last Hello (Poetry) - 7/30/2015 8:40:26 AM
When I was young... I would think... "Why put off until tomorrow, when you can put it off until the day after?"
As I age I think... "John.. seize the moment... we know not how many moments we have left."
Harvest Life (Poetry) - 7/30/2015 8:05:05 AM
We humans are the only animals on the planet that value life with our strange beliefs. All other animals live in a food chain (we are in that chain, but do not believe we are) that generally means that most deaths are harvested for food.
I'm with Jonathan Swift. Since we have entirely too many babies, we should harvest the excess for food. We eat veal, don't we? ;-)
Harvest Life (Poetry) - 7/30/2015 6:57:02 AM
Money (power), governments (politics), and organized religions have kept this world in bondage for so long... ...and sadly, it continues. Love and peace to you, George.

Harvest Life (Poetry) - 7/29/2015 1:08:09 PM
Very powerfully said. Political gambling has become the driving force for many "Life" decisions. The cost: human lives at every age. The womb has seen the tides of genocide far surpassing anything the world has ever seen.
This is an eye opener.
Harvest Life (Poetry) - 7/29/2015 12:42:42 PM
I think it is grotesque, and like you say, politics are involved. I am not against abortion, but they are becoming very mercenary about the "body parts," and that sickens me.

Having a fear of heights, I can appreciate the anxiety you felt. Thank goodness for your brother!
A Dream (Poetry) - 7/27/2015 8:47:53 AM
the scale was trembling between statics and dynamic. . . your brother’s call has impeded your qualitative leap, returning you to your bloody perching. Next time be prompter, sir ;)) Cheers, alex

Fables (Poetry) - 7/27/2015 6:02:05 AM
Fables, upon close examination, tended to be quite gruesome and diabolical sometimes. But they came from stories passed down through the ages verbally and then were written down and captured for all time by the likes of the Brothers Grimm. Wonderful and scary at the same time. I never recall being scared by any of them. I only seem to fear real danger and I somehow knew the difference. There was no bogeyman in the closet or under my bed. As a boy, I slept well.

My Angel (Poetry) - 7/25/2015 11:14:39 AM
George, she must have been wonderful.Your memories and the love you shared will always be in your heart.
My Angel (Poetry) - 7/25/2015 9:18:08 AM
And she will be an angel till the day you both meet on the next plain wherever that may be...-e-
Buttons (Poetry) - 7/25/2015 7:06:55 AM
Buttons are back!! Jeans have them now instead of zippers and they like them. I have loads of buttons and if I am going to throw something away I cut off the buttons and save them. You never know when you might need a button or two. Lol

As we go through life hopefully along the way we gain some wisdom.
Laughter (Poetry) - 7/24/2015 9:39:54 AM
You have experienced a lot George.Yet you still can laugh. I respect you.
Laughter (Poetry) - 7/24/2015 9:13:14 AM
You have seen the best and worst that life has to offer. Yes, laughter is the best medicine. Great stuff here, George.
Buttons (Poetry) - 7/23/2015 1:37:37 PM
I have my mother's button box, and treasure it!
Zippers are faster and simpler -- except when they get stuck -- and then you are stuck with a stuck zipper!
Velcro might be the best route!
Nice to read about the old days.
Progress (Poetry) - 7/23/2015 9:42:31 AM
Yes, we are killing ourselves with "progress".

Keep that butter in the fridge, George. Good one!
Can It Happen (Poetry) - 7/23/2015 9:37:18 AM
Starvation is on the brink if we don't change our ways and stop using pesticides that are killing the bees. Nothing will live.
Buttons (Poetry) - 7/23/2015 9:25:00 AM
Very nice, George!
Buttons (Poetry) - 7/23/2015 9:06:01 AM
Yep they sure are George.Thanks for the poem.
Buttons (Poetry) - 7/23/2015 8:43:14 AM
that's true. seven buttons of man's shirt we have to button down every morning and after. . . plus some of them, if a case, downstairs. bikes are also around nowadays to be a fantasy of grand-grand ancestors of genius. Cheers, alex
Buttons (Poetry) - 7/23/2015 7:48:50 AM
Awww . . . Button it up! Been a long time since I've said that.
Survival (Poetry) - 7/23/2015 5:03:29 AM
bravo!. . but if you show your patience and tolerance, they will ruin their country's infrastructure by themselves, giving you an opportunity to win without fighting. Cheers, alex
Heed A Warning (Poetry) - 7/22/2015 11:56:10 PM
Ah, yes! Warnings are given for a reason.
Heed A Warning (Poetry) - 7/22/2015 7:15:13 PM
You not speak with forked tongue herein kemosabe...you make good point to be followed by all...-e-
Heed A Warning (Poetry) - 7/22/2015 6:27:24 PM
only he who drinks water knows whether it is hot or cold. . . exoggerated simplification sounds wildly, if not to say savagely to be burn by the demonish spirit within all of us. . . the caldrons have been kindled from time immemorial to be filled in immediately after the exam styled 'life.' I know, this time you don't mean it. till next time, G. Cheers, alex
Heed A Warning (Poetry) - 7/22/2015 5:20:00 PM
Yep. Monkey see. Monkey do, George.
I'm Content (Poetry) - 7/22/2015 11:41:54 AM
You are a man both admired and loved, dear George - let alone envied! Would we all treasure that which you have found: the riches in simplicity and the joy of inner contentment. As always, spot on. Kate xx
I'm Content (Poetry) - 7/22/2015 9:23:54 AM
May we have hope for those who are lost...
Masturbating Words (Poetry) - 7/21/2015 4:24:55 AM
A different approach to the subject at hand(?) George and it makes for an interesting read.
I'm Content (Poetry) - 7/20/2015 6:11:24 PM
I can't wait to sing the praises to you, "yeah, yeah, yeah, lovely jubbly. . ." ;-)) The olden days oriental style indeed, George. Cheers, alex
I'm Content (Poetry) - 7/20/2015 4:47:56 PM
Be happy you have nothing to leave to anyone except your good humor and sense of self, for being rich materially is very hard to be, though I will never have that problem, I still know of it through another person who recently passed and left her relatives that which they did not want...-e-
I'm Content (Poetry) - 7/20/2015 3:47:49 PM
It's too bad for those who are jealous. You are very rich indeed because you are content. There is nothing more precious than that.
Lost Thought (Poetry) - 7/20/2015 9:16:07 AM
The last line may be correlated with Icarus, therefore, I see it properly placed. The question is: What the next step will be taken from there to bear the fruit? Will he follow his own dazzling thought or that of Daedalus, his good father, who is a man of rational thought of flying lower but long-term? The latter is a true attribute of Heaven and the sun, not the former, the feature of ignorant heroes and the subjects of great myths. Cheers, alex
Lost Thought (Poetry) - 7/20/2015 8:18:16 AM
Lovely, George. Write on!!!
Lost Thought (Poetry) - 7/20/2015 7:04:58 AM
I really love the thought of this poem. And it flows so beautifully as I read it. Only the last line seems a bit incongruous.
Lost (Poetry) - 7/20/2015 5:27:24 AM
Truly, it is that a man may gain by losing, and yet may lose by gaining. . .
He who fusses over anything spoils it; he who holds anything tightly loses it.
When wanting a thing to be gained, first be ready to lose it. Cheers, alex
Lost (Poetry) - 7/20/2015 5:23:37 AM
This is one of your very best, George. I enjoyed it very much.
Lost (Poetry) - 7/20/2015 3:35:29 AM
We all feel lost at times, George, I am at that state of mind presently.
Good Looking Gals (Poetry) - 7/19/2015 9:12:08 AM
I never tire of looking and enjoying feminine beauty; it comes in all shapes, sizes, and personality. Love and peace to you, George.
Good Looking Gals (Poetry) - 7/19/2015 8:50:06 AM
I'm a guy watcher myself!
Symposium Of Thoughts (Poetry) - 7/19/2015 7:03:40 AM
I didn't know that mistreatment had a left or right side.
Symposium Of Thoughts (Poetry) - 7/18/2015 5:59:47 PM
Oh, I hate to hear that anyone is being mistreated! Cool poem though.
The Steps To Eternity (Poetry) - 7/18/2015 5:57:41 PM

We all need to get a "grip" at times. I know I do!!!
A Helping Hand (Poetry) - 7/18/2015 10:06:05 AM
The last line says it all!! Wonderful!
A Helping Hand (Poetry) - 7/18/2015 9:15:02 AM
With me, it was always a weak skinny woman. Darn it, if that wasn't embarrassing!

Kickass every day. (mostly!)
Rambling Thoughts (Poetry) - 7/17/2015 5:00:06 PM
Don't be thinking aloud less people will think you are kind of nuts talking to yourself...I talk to the walls in my apartment, but they have yet to talk back...guess I am still somewhat sane...-e-
