Back when they owned a home,

Their woods the homeowner roamed…

Found a large bra

Waiting for a thaw,

Hanging from a branch away from home.

Found a bag-full  ladies’ shoes,

And a PLAYGIRL Mag. well-used….

What evil lurks

In all human works,

What horrible things Man exumes!

–Jonathan Caswell


Young ones tend to learn fast,

How to an impression last…

How to pose hips

With smiling lips,

To garner attention fast!

So often a little tilt

Will a man’s heart wilt…

Practised form

Impressions warm,

Attraction or sudden guilt.

For her man behind the lens,

She makes attractive bends…

Not for me–

For marriage sanctity–

She flirts with him for love’s ends!

–Jonathan Caswell


Sunny, clear and cold,

We celebrate as of old…

A warm embrace

Fingers trace

On skin patterns bold!

Hey–romantic ;love,

Being closer than in a glove…

The day we’re telling

Our heart swelling

Is for our turtle dove!

Presents and cupcakes reign,

Romantic foods by design…

Baubles and things

Give love wings,

Or at least that’s the hoped for sign!

–Jonathan Caswell



–WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE COLORS?–Blue, green and white…less so (on me) pink

–ANY PREFERENCES IN FASHION?   –For me–few.  I do not like horizontal strips–emphasizes the belly too much!

–FAVORITE MOVIES?  Haven’t seen any recently  I avoid movies where women are hurt raped of abused–that includes TV shows  The older 007–yes–the newer ones are more openly violent than I’d like.

–WOMEN’S ISSUES—THOUGHTS ON? –I’m always a follower of women (!).  I consider them equals, some superior, as are some men compared to me. But equal in the sight of God–which not all men accept.  😦  I do believe the Biblical view…Jeremiah 1: 5–“before I (GOD) formed you in the womb I knew you”—and Psalm 139: 13-14–“FOR YOU (GOD) knit me in my mother’s womb…I am fearfully and wondrously made…”   These Scriptures—and others–confirm for me that a  human life begins at conception.  In an ideal world men would want responsibility for the children they help produce…and both partners would  want to hold off until things were secure for the children.     Abortion is being used as birth control  Killing babies in or out of the womb as opposed to preventing birth in the first place.

According to women who have been willing to open up about it, abortion leaves scars whether women want to admit it or not.   Men don’t feel a thing…normally. Aside from the morality, a very practical  result is that those people groups (Hispanic, Muslim, certain others) are rapidly catching up in population totals to overtake  we people who insist upon killing our children ahead of time!     These other groups are rapidly becoming  the majority in many countries including my own.

WOMEN’S “RIGHTS”—I was schooled by liberal “progressive” types…mostly women, with a mother who, although conservative politically, stood up for her rights for equal pay in teaching—a man just out of teacher’s college was offered more than she, who had several years’ experience, plus her M,S,E, degree—she quit in protest!

REFER to the above statements on WOMEN’S ISSUES and abortion. The baby inside IS NOT TOTALLY A PART OF HER BODY–IT IS A SEPARATE  INDIVIDUAL WITH RIGHTS, TOO…even biologically speaking!!  Again, in an ideal world, both parents would be actively involved.  Better to let it be born and adopted, in my view, than killed outright by one-half of the couple that formed it.   My wife and I were childless. Neither she or I were able to produce children.  Wish we could have adopted one of the ones that weren’t even allowed to live, when we could most likely have afforded it.   But again…the girl is often left to carry the burden by herself…regardless OF ANY CONSEQUENCES TO HER…including mental and physical and spiritual damage.  I can’t do anything about that, either, except offer prayerful caring support–they are your and their decisions to make.  I’m here to love with God’s love and not judge.


.Now that I’ve been turned away from–in repulsion by the vast (?) majority of the predominantly  “progressive-liberal” creative community–again, people (meaning you and me) must decide each for ourselves every day what to do or how to think—or what about.

I remain the old fun-loving, character I’ve always been. I am or have been the friend of lesbians, gay men, Buddhists, Muslims (at least one) Hindus, out-and-out pagans,other Christians with differing views, and who knows whom else?  Your choice as to whom you wish to associate with–and mine!  🙂

“BO-BO”, whose name is Arthur,

Stopped in the hallway to charter…

The ways of men

Not married again,

Nor wish to take it farther!

When his wife died, he

Felt life for him was buried…

No interest

In women–just rest–

An awful loss he carried.

If I’m to understand.

One day he woke up as a man…

Looking revived

And cherished his life,

Enjoying what’s left of his span.

Now he has family—

Daughters, grand kids, to see…

Misses his wife

But lives life,

A little more enjoyably!

–Jonathan Caswell


A radio ad often run

This neck of the woods for fun…


With a mouse translator,

Saying mice…are like everyone!

Mouse claims he’s just like you,

Running around for something to chew…

He stays warm

Doing clothes harm,

Or by insulation he’ll hew.

This mouse says he is polite,

Leaves calling cards by night…

Which he likes to do

‘Cause he’s “just like you,”

You SHOULD think his entry delight!

Got up early from bed,

This ad rolling round in my head…

By the lamp light

A mouse ran in fright,

Was just as the ad…said!

He ran from our back room to closet,

And no–I saw no deposit…

And then he went zoom

Into the living room,

No way that I could stop it.

I hope the guy’s poor at craps,

Maintenance put out the traps…

I hope there’s just one

Then it’s done,

Our clutter comes out from under wraps!

–Jonathan Caswell


A spiritual sister of mine,

Said she had resigned…

Life without a man–

Two divorces can

Shed doubt on covenants signed.

Along the way God told her,

When she was ten years older…

A man she’d meet

Who’s wash her feet,

With love thriving not smolder!

Of course he perked up his ears

Up with an impish smile rears…

Up to say–

“I won’t be available that day”,

Shedding mock silly tears!

–Jonathan Caswell


When one calls on “Nessie”.

The process is likely messy…

Cloudy water

Cameras falter,

So hard to see from a jetty!

From a Lake Champlain boat ramp.

You might not find “Champ”…

A plesiosaur (?)

American lore,

‘Though along the shore live you camp!

We like sea creatures well-fed,

As long as it isn’t us dead…

Strange photographs

As epitaphs,

Are they really only in our heads?

–Jonathan Caswell


Foraging in-between,

Highway and exit ramp seen…

Acorns and grass

Singly en mass,

Turkeys and deer in-between!
