Ode To Ben

For those that read my Twitter page, you'll know that today I lost my beloved Ben.  He wasn't just a dog nor just a pet.  He was family.  And this little poem is for him. 

A heart of gold that stopped beating
Two twinkling eyes closed to rest
As the Good Book reads
God only created the best
And with no doubt
The best was you
Goodbye, we love you

Short Poem Competition

Recently a magazine held a short poem competition.  The rules were the first line had to be romantic while the second line was, well, less then romantic.  Here are some of the best that were sent in.  Enjoy ~ Rhiannon

1. My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife:

Marrying you has screwed up my life.

2. I see your face when I am dreaming.

That's why I always wake up screaming.

3. Kind, intelligent, loving and hot;

This describes everything you are not.

4. Love may be beautiful, love may be bliss,

But I only slept with you 'cause I was pissed.

5. I thought that I could love no other

-- that is, until I met your brother.

6. Roses are red, violets are blue; sugar is sweet, and so are you.

But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead; the sugar bowl's empty and

so is your head.

7. I want to feel your sweet embrace;

But don't take that paper bag off your face.

8. I love your smile, your face, and your eyes

Damn, I'm good at telling lies!

9. My love, you take my breath away.

What have you stepped in to smell this way?

10. My feelings for you no words can tell,

Except for maybe 'Go to hell.'

11. What inspired this amorous rhyme?

Two parts vodka, one part lime.
