what gets lost

in translation.”

Troiku*

.

my world rotates

what can the eye and mind see

between black and white

.

my world rotates

time goes to  black history

white is the future

.

white is all colors

what can the eye and mind see

black is the absence

.

technicolor dreams

is living only visual

between black and white

.

ME and the Boss

.

* A creative alteration of the original Troiku form.
In this form the first stanza shares the first line of the origina haiku.
The second line is the middle line of the second stanza.
The third line is the last line in the last section.

Poetry Is

“Poetry is the honey

of all flowers,

the quintessence

of all science,

the marrow of wit,

and the very phrase

of angels.”

rhyme gives the soul a meaning

reading and writing
