Sonnets from Suburbia: At the Beach
Our illustrious LA Life Poetess Lady Penelope, aka Penny Peyser, is at the beach this week! Sounds luverly, right? Well…not for the dear Lady. Of course, she has a few complaints. Hard to imagine how anyone could have such a strong dislike for the beach and she certainly makes her reasons very clear in At the Beach. And don’t forget to order a copy of Penny Peyser’s (Lady Penelope) brilliant newly released book, “Sonnets from Suburbia: More Candles Than Cake”.
At the Beach
It’s not all fun and games here at the beach.
The sand that can intrude our private places,
the children who do scream ‘tho we beseech
and SP 50 on our tender faces.
Why bring a towel, ‘t will probably grow soggy.
Thine umbrella will blow ‘way for sure,
or you’ll arrive when it is cold and foggy
and wind will seize belongings not secure.
Why do I often rale against the tide
that peacefully or mostly stays the course?
O’ some of us are better off inside
when nature’s majesty we can’t endorse.
I can’t imagine why I am so crabby.
I must admit this view is not too shabby.
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.
