    Poems by Cynthia C. Naspinski

  • The Junk Drawer

    • Published: February 3, 2023

    in Funny Life Poems

    That Marie Kondo would have a conniption
    If she were to open the drawer in my kitchen.
    A search of this drawer isn't for the faint-hearted.
    You'll want to give up though your quest's barely started.

  • Beauty Unattainable

    Photo editing is rife in social media and can range from air-brushing to extreme modification. Young people, especially, are measuring themselves against these often sexualised images of unrealistic beauty standards. This can lead to low self esteem, falling prey to scams, resorting to photoshopping selfies, or worse - mental health issues, eating disorders or undergoing cosmetic procedures. Even when we're aware that images have been altered, the constant exposure still affects us subliminally.

    Tummies flat and waists so tiny,
    Perky breasts and cleavage shiny,
    Photoshopped into 'perfection',
    On display for our inspection.

  • The Bear With No Hair

    • Published: July 10, 2022

    in Inspiring Poems for Kids

    Benny the bear was bare of all hair
    And barely could bear being hairless.
    He felt rather silly (and a little bit chilly)
    And wished that the hairy bears stared less.

    • Published: May 10, 2022

    I tried to write a poem
    But I couldn't find the words.
    They've taken a vacation
    So my poem's been deferred.

    in Pet Friend Poems

    She has left a void,
    the rooms too quiet, too still,
    the yard just a yard,
    for in her absence we see

Thanks for the laugh. I love your version of the song, and your clever lyrics fit perfectly. To me, it's especially funny because it is so relatable (sigh), and I think we have a similar sense of humour. I've enjoyed all of your poems and look forward to reading more of your work.

Oh Ann, I am so sorry for your loss. I can't begin to imagine what you're going through. I hope that, in time, you may be able to find some measure of solace in writing your wonderful poetry.

Hi Marybeth. What a cute story...he sounds adorable. It reminded me of our previous dog, also a lab, who was our resident present opener. She loved nothing more than tearing off wrapping paper. She became very efficient at it, alternately ripping off strips and spitting them out, then patiently waiting for the next one to be offered. She would even ignore her own opened presents till her job was done. The only time we deprived her of her fun was if a present contained clothing or a book. It became a Christmas ritual and you can imagine the mess of paper but totally worth the joy it gave her and therefore us.
