Sonnets from Suburbia
Lady Penelope insights this week might ignite…thought and reflection… as she so eloquently laments fading passions with her sonnet “Couples”.
They watched a couple on the screen embrace,
their swollen lips caressing unabashed,
and hands enjoying such a languid pace
of exploration, bodies all but lashed.
The darkness in the theatre well hid
the husband and his wife who didn’t touch,
attempting to remember when they did
desire each other even half as much.
The husband cleared his throat watching the scene.
That caused the wife to gaze into her lap
and wonder at the space that lay between
the two of them and could they bridge the gap.
O’, life’s merely another shade of gray
when passion’s embers cool and fade away.
The tomato behind The Three Tomatoes.
Cheryl Benton, aka the “head tomato” is founder and publisher of The Three Tomatoes, a digital lifestyle magazine for “women who aren’t kids”. Having lived and worked for many years in New York City, the land of size zero twenty-somethings, she was truly starting to feel like an invisible woman. She created The Three Tomatoes just for the fun of it as the antidote for invisibility and sent it to 60 friends. Today she has thousands of friends and is chief cheerleader for smart, savvy women who want to live their lives fully at every age and every stage. She is the author of the novel, "Can You See Us Now?" and co-author of a humorous books of quips, "Martini Wisdom." Because she's lived a long time, her full bio won't fit here.
