That Celestial Source

“Every beauty which

is seen here by

persons of perception

resembles more

than anything else

that celestial source

from which we all are come.”

glad to be nice

Poem:

to be a raspberry or not
identified by the purple spot
how did it become the Bronx cheer
fans who consumed one to many a beer

the bush, however, is a thorny problem
bees and butterflies love the blossom
one plant gives birth to a hundred suckers
this is only good if your name is Smuckers

at the local diner berries are the favorite pie
at home, dad’s favorite was the infamous shoofly
topped with ice cream, they are berrie berrie good
berries in a smoothie is well understood

wild berries were lunch for the wandering child
delightful innocence,  and God smiled
that pollution won’t spoil the berries we pray
you, yourself, please have a berry good day

How Do I Love Thee

.

How do I love thee?

Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth

and breadth and height

My soul can reach.”

feeling kinda blue

I really miss seeing you

your smiles make my day

Poem:

.

easy words
a lesson for everyone
something about the bees and the birds
making learning fun

no subliminal innuendo
shooting straight from the hip
no need for a big crescendo
pictures from a comic strip

short words
a story for everyone
something about the ladies and lords
making life fun

choose the words that cannot tell a lie
straight from the stiff upper lip
put the ice cream atop your apple pie
doing a roundover into a backflip

long hard words
impressing no one
something about measuring wood in cords
if you can read you have already won

be a winner, read my poems every Saturday and Sunday
always written in short easy words
