Mouth Closed

Close your mouth when you chew

Hold it tight or you I will eschew

Eat like a true gentleman or lady

With these rules you won’t look shady

“This week you may choose any poetic form you like for your “How To” and it may be limited to just one  rule of etiquette …”~Bastet

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. I stressed that issue with my grands. I say; “I do not want you talking with food in your mouth, because the food should not be able to fall out!”
    Just really irritating when I see adults talk with food in their mouths.
