Words Count, a 60 word Poem



Untitled (it could be the book of words)

 
I went to the store, up hill and down
On my way I met a small cherub 
Dressed in his gown, he had run away 
From the cherubim.  He thought, real cool 
But now he was lost.  His momacry 

Lunch, book of words.  Serendipity 
At the store a chocolate ice cream cone

End note:  Cupid, our lad soon succumbs

 - I'm linked with Mom Zen, at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, Words Count,  http://withrealtoads.blogspot.com/2017/09/words-count-with-mama-zen.html

 - Mom Z wants us to use three of the following words listed, I used the three asterisked, well four as my "mimicry" is stretched a little.  Teacher-wise, she would "give" (really award) us ten extra points if we titled our poem "book of words".  I used these words in the body of my "poem" and noted that it would qualify for the name.  Count the title it completes the 60 words M.Z. required.

 - What do these words have in common?
mimicry*
testament
rapture
cool*
dachshund
cherubim*
heretic
infinitesimal
convenient
serendipity*

Tenderness -- a Poem for Sunday


Tenderness
Definition: (Google search "Tenderness")
noun: tenderness; plural noun: tendernesses

1a. gentleness and kindness.
"he picked her up in his arms with great tenderness"
synonyms: kindness, kindliness, kindheartedness, tenderheartedness, compassion, care, concern, sympathy, humanity, warmth, fatherliness, motherliness, gentleness, benevolence, generosity
"with unexpected tenderness, he told her what had happened"

1b. feelings of deep affection; devotion.
"tenderness for the opposite sex"
synonyms: affection, fondness, love, devotion, loving kindness, emotion, sentiment
"I felt an enormous tenderness for her"

2. sensitivity to pain.
"abdominal tenderness"
synonyms: soreness, pain, inflammation, irritation, bruising; More

Tenderness - Do you know anyone in politics who fits the definition?  Hard to think of one, I know.  In fact I believe politicians cause inflammation, especially if they win and are in office, with lots of power.

Well, lets approach it from another angle - do you know anyone in our government who fits that definition?  You should find a few here.

I'll try to help, what is the mission of the FEMA -- U.S. government agency designed to help folk recover from disaster.  FEMA is to manage our emergencies so the name says. 

But then I knew a very kind young lady who graduated from college and was employed by FEMA, she was the kindest.  I cannot imagine her ever grouching at a client.
 

Child Welfare -- Help and rescue the children from various harms, in and out of the family situation. 

Child Abuse is the most dastardly crime I can ever think of, poor defenseless children don't have a chance.  I didn't and still cannot forgive the abuser, even though he is long deceased.  If I forgot perhaps I would forgive.  One never forgets abuse.
 

I am quoting from an unnamed source, written from a lady who really meant it, it was listed in her list of desires: 
"I desire a kinder, more peaceful world, less divided by things like politics and religion.  I wish we didn't have either one of those things in this world - they are both the root of much suffering and I believe we'd be better off without them, and with more acceptance and tolerance and love."
 
I'm all for the riddance of politics but I believe that God is the author of "Love".  I'll stop there for this post, just as she stopped with the word, "love".



With these lines I'll stop
Do I rant?  Well I should, loud
Get on my high horse
