Father’s Day Harvest

Your Daily Poem Editor Jayne Jaudon sometimes organizes her poetry publications around a theme. I sent her a rewritten mountain poem a few weeks ago. She liked it, but needed one more summery poem about tomatoes. I gave it a try and, though I am daughterless, felt a daughter’s voice would add to my effort, so I drafted the daughter of an old friend. Christina is now a parent herself, though I asked her teen incarnation to speak in Father’s Day Harvest. I hope it will offer a chuckle or two! https://www.yourdailypoem.com/listpoem.jsp?poem_id=4153

Ramadan in Istanbul

The view from Kurtulus

While visiting son Jeremy some years ago, I experienced Ramadan in Istanbul — drums before dawn, tensions during the hot afternoon, wonderful mezes after dusk. My poem in Verse Virtual plucks memories from that trip. https://www.verse-virtual.org/2022/April/walton-robert-2022-april.html

Here’s the Basilica Cistern — just because.
