Bio Note: I recently began writing poetry at nearly age 65, after retiring from a long career as an attorney. When not writing poetry, I enjoy hiking with my wife, and reading anthologies of 20th Century American poems. In addition to Verse-Virtual, my poems have appeared in The Lyric Magazine, Snakeskin, and The Society of Classical Poets, among other journals.
Images of Old Friends
Because her appearance Is not like before, She won’t get together With us anymore. But it’s so ironic That she is estranged, For our view of her is Forever unchanged.
He lost a giant fish, Thereafter caught three more. Achieving every wish, But still it wasn’t four.
