Upon The Poetry


“Honest criticism

and sensible appreciation

are directed

not upon the poet

but upon the poetry.”


~ T.S. Eliot,



Elfje:             (Cinquain)



improves apearance

uses fewer muscles

can be very contagious





awesome is the ant

a biblical proverb who

moves heaven and earth




sunbeams warm the sand
bodies wishing to be tanned
visits to the beach

umbrellas and chairs aligned in a row
the world speed turned down to slow
cheeks colored like a fuzzy peach

children of all ages building castles
egotist flexing over developed muscles
we must be careful what we teach

domain of the ogling voyeurs
the perfect body connoisseurs
the prejudice that we preach

families playing together
lotioned skin resembles leather
squeals of laughter replacing speech

mind’s images creating memory
today becomes tomorrow’s history
same moment, a different picture for each

a gentle reminder, sand everywhere
and warm reflections of a day without care.
