“One must

read poetry

with one’s



― Wallace Stevens



Elfje:   (Cinquain)



the rhythm

the earth speaks

mother nature waxes poetic





rainbows perfect arc

leading to the pot of gold

puddles and flowers




thank you soldier

I live a life or ease

with epaulets upon your shoulder

my freedom is your guarantee


from the American Revolution

to today’s police action

you defend the Constitution

democracy your sanction


only one day a year we celebrate you

that effort certainly pales compared to what you do

today we thank you on our blog

hoping it will become an eternal epilogue


Thanks to all who sacrificed and all who serve.



ME and the Boss
