About Everybody

“Writing poetry is

talking to oneself;
yet it is a mode of
talking to oneself
in which the self
and the product’s
something that,
though it may not be
for everybody,
is about everybody.”

~ Richard Wilbur


Elfje: (Cinquain)



minds eye

what could be

to expand one’s world





what little we know

nature’s secrets well hidden

thank goodness it works




it is an honor
thank you very much
to be a father
with his soft touch

vicarious pride
his family to love
always satisfied
head and shoulders above

learn from my mistakes
be there emotionally
do whatever it takes
love unconditionally

be the man
I know you can


ME and the Boss
