Farewell Maters


Farewell, my tasty Southern maters!

Your juiciness, I shall surely grieve.

Why must thou take thy hasty leave?

You along with your friendly taters!


No juice sliding down my chin’s craters.

No more wiping my face with my sleeve.

Farewell, my tasty Southern maters.

Your juiciness, I shall surely grieve.


I fear lest you shall to my heart be traitors.

That you must go and my heart deceive.

Make me so dread the early frost heave.

I shall surely classify thee as Fall agitators.

Farewell, my tasty Southern Maters!

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. This was quite interesting. I love tomatoes (and potatoes), too! I planted them, two years in a row I have tried, and nothing, not even one tomato. If we were back home in South Carolina, I would have had tons of them. Here on the TX Gulf Coast, in a yard covered by tree canopy and three rounds of flooding, forget it. No tomatoes.
    Here’s to next spring/summer and more tomatoes for you!
    Have a great weekend. 🙂
