Ode to Pooh 2

Beloved Pooh, you’ve given me

A most comforting; most satisfying moment.

Like a fragrant bouquet of lavender flowers,

Presented on Valentine’s Day,

So too, you envelop my being,

With such a sweet delivery!

Bless´ed expulsions!

You’ve taken away the discomfiture,

The endless anxiety of a long train journey.

It was a simple matter of unlocking a desire,

A sweet, yet dying need to expire.

How I love this essential welcomed feat,

Of poetry in motion on a bathroom seat!

For now I bow, to your most magical treat.

-Manatita, 16th March, 2016. Copyrighted.

The joys of 'crapping'

Do you find it sometimes 'cool'?

      A bit stretched yes. Just trying to show the essential goodness in things seemingly unwholesome. Also its good to digress occasionally. Thank you Shauna.

      Manatita, you surprise me quite often of late! When I read the title, I thought your poem would be about Winnie the Pooh. Little did I know you were giving (eloquent) thanks to a daily ritual.

      Scent of lavender? Are you saying your s%@t don't stink???? Tee hee.

      This is hilarious! It was a surprise for me when I read it. Like Bill, I was expecting to read something about Winnie the Pooh!

      Aah! The Runs ....I will struggle to find a way of making this one positive! My childhood memories ain't so good. Ha ha.

      The burning, the cramps, the weakness, the inconveniences. ..the discomfort ... I once had this at school! I was about five years old. Poor me!

      I'm sure that I can make them useful. Chuckle ... chuckle.

      We're alike, Ruby. We like a good laugh.

      Thanks Shanmarie. So sorry about the kids. Happy you got some joy from this. He he. Cool!

      Rochelle, very interesting father. Much wisdom there. Thank you so much!

      Missy, so glad you liked it. Yes, very different. I did not read it last night in public. No courage. I read your Hub and poems. I usually do the video too, but I don't recall Bukowski's poem on the subject.

      Yes, a little of my style is this there, but I touch on laughter once in a while. Good for the Soul they tell me.

      Frank, you're the best, man. Funny! Ha ha.

      Jodah, is it good for a public read...a poetry read? Yes, the radical left as well. Ha ha.

      Well, my Brother Venkatachari M,

      You're more even than the others. You show a great spirit of acceptance. I like your stance. Gratitude, Bro.

      Great, Manatita!!! I am smiling at this ode. A very natural, essential process of daily life. Really it gives so much relief and comfort. Without it you can not feel good. A God's gift it is. I experience these wonders of God often and thank him for his wonderful mechanism.

      Thanks for coming up with an ode to this process of body. Wish you happy days.

      This was so different coming from you, Manatita. Even so, you have found a way to make even pooh sound glorious.

      I think the late Charles Bukowski may have taken your body as a captive on this one, if you watched that video on my last hub, he talks, himself, about a brilliant pooh, although he calls it something different. I did warn who ever took the gander to watch that video to be warned of his straight forward and sometimes vile descriptions of things.

      However, Manatita, Charles did not enter your body. I was joking. lol. Because your pooh smells like roses and his, well...I guess you can say it just smelled like sh**. :/

      I thought, although it was a very shocking subject for me to read coming from you, it was a great thing for you to venture out and go for it with something out of your comfort zone. I must say, you did this very well. We could still feel your original quality, but a very different subject. :)

      My Dad used to visit the racetrack once or twice a year, and he always bet on the horses that defecated just prior to a race-- knowing that they were feeling really good.

      What a creative and observant mind you have.
