FAVORITE POEM #14
Celebrate National Poetry Month!!
Today I am lifting an original poem from fellow poet-blogger Khaled's site. Khaled is passionate about poetry and he pulls off something in this poem that I strive for: poignancy AND humor. I love how this one makes me smile.
Our relationship was
and for a change
and with time
in need of conditioner
Why are you staring at me now that I am bald
are you holding those scissors?
- Khaled KEM
Speaking of smiles, I've been invited to do a little segment on a local tv station.
When I told my youngest son I was wondering what I should wear, he said, "wear what you wore yesterday!" Which was a nice teal-colored top and actually the very thing I thought of! And how amazing that he even remembered what I wore the day before, much less imagined that it would be a good choice for television??
My husband, who was listening, leaned over and whispered in my ear, "and you wish you had a girl."
LOVE that boy.
