Poem of Friendship

And so it came to be
Through chance or destiny
That we would meet and become friends.

The best times have begun
To share laughter and fun
Let’s hope our friendship never ends.

Poem of Dreaming

PHOTO CREDIT: modified photo from unsplash.com.

Some may say she’s perfect
She’ll tell you otherwise
Aware that she has faults
There’s no need for disguise

Her shy smile and brown eyes
Each melt my heart away
Plus, an inner beauty
She’s more than just okay

The time to share is now
While in the Spring of life
And were my wish fulfilled
Come Fall, she’d be my wife

Yes, I know I’m dreaming
Though hope to see the light
Thinking of her daily
And wanting what feels right

Of course, a few things would need to change. For starters, it certainly would be nice if she’d remove my name from being blacklisted on her site at WordPress. It would also be charitable if my emails were no longer filtered into her trash bin. And, on occasion, she could use Twitter to read some of the messages & comments I’ve left for her. Perhaps, as an act of goodwill, she might like a single post on my web site…sometime. Lastly, if she would refrain from associating my name with the term ‘devil’ – I think that would be helpful, too. Barring these few exceptions, the future looks bright!!!

Yes, I know I’m dreaming.

Interview With Emojis

I wrote this imaginative piece earlier this year, about a woman I liked and whose name shall remain anonymous…


🎙 What is courage?
😊 Well, I call her by her first name – XXXXX. She is courage.

🎙 Is she strong?
😅 Yes. She’s much stronger than I, and less than half my size. And I’m not ashamed to say it, but I’m afraid of her.

🎙 What does she look like?
😍 To me, she is a vision of beauty – her eyes, face, smile…and she’s also equally lovely inside.

🎙 Have you told her?
🤔 Have I told her what?

🎙 That you love her?
🥰 Is it that obvious? Well, yes.

🎙 Hmmm…did she say it back to you?
🕵 Well, I think she asked me about the weather…but she didn’t say that she didn’t love me.

🎙 I see. And that’s fine with you?
❤️ Yes, it is.

I think it’s good to be able to laugh at oneself 😂 at times, and I hope that you found my sense of humor entertaining. Have a great day 👍

Laughter Is Good Medicine

CAUTION

What you’re about to see in no way resembles the behavior of a mature adult

I made this film in December 2020 for a woman I liked a lot, but who, at that time – in my opinion – had low self confidence about her appearance. In my eyes, though, she was truly beautiful…

Sadly, remarks such as – I like you very muchI think of you a lotI know that it is a huge feelingI dream about you – etc., ended early.

But, the video remains & has some redeeming value – Phil’s humor 😂 I’m glad that I can laugh at myself & think laughter is good medicine!

A Poem

Keep On Moving…

Her eyes look right through me
As if I wasn’t there
It’s not the way it was
In fact, she used to care

But times have changed, today
More folks have come along
No longer a bright light
She’s found another song

I guess that I should go
To find a pretty face
Another girl to meet
And welcome to my space

Be grateful to share smiles
And break bread together
Write poems and laugh anew
Nothing lasts forever

It sure would be nice, though.
