Some Echo

“One way poetry


is across time. .

. . Some echo of

a writer’s physical


comes into us

when we read

her poem.”


Jane Hirshfield

Elfje: ….. Classic: each word only one syllable. Cinquain
this week
in that month
it’s been a year

Haiku: 5x7x5
animals colors
defense against predators
only man can see
she put on the tease
it was him she wanted to please
a life partner who was fun
days enjoyed playing in the sun

quite conscience of the here and now
no concerns about yesterday or tomorrow
growing older together they could accept
trust and faith in each other they kept

providing a family their earthly mission met
volunteered their services with no regret
church and state obligations done as a duty
their gardens always a thing of beauty

a doing couple until the end
people upon whom you could depend
their epitaphs honored each other
father, mother, sister and brother

the world thanks God for couples like this
proving that God’s will is not hit or miss
