Just the Ash

.

Poetry is just

the evidence of life.

If your life is

burning well,

poetry is

just the ash.”

wet

the grass

does not burn

pray for more rain

drought

HAIKU:

.

nature accepts change

seasons become important

call them what you may

Poem

.

the crow  of premonition

perched on the scarecrows head

sparking the farmers intuition

foreboding a feeling of dread

.

is it a truth or an old wives tale

does the Great Creator have a sense of humor

what is it with the salt on his tail

can the bird really tell the future

.

a creature of opportunity

he loves to go for the bling

and lives with a reputation of ambiguity

with a signature caw he does not sing

.

Jim Crow reigned in the South

God, please make us all color blind

for those who didn’t read it was word of mouth

apparently bird brained is the state of mankind

.

the humble rarely have to eat crow

the braggart is the crowing chicken

he knows best who can go very slow

why worry . . .  the future is hidden

A True Poet

“A true poet

is one who can

appreciate

the disciplines

and structures

of any style of poetry.”

To bond with Mother Nature

Poem

.

It started out with kisses

quickly escalated to an altercation

toe to toe

face to face

the screaming

the yelling

inferences to the animal donkey

naming family who resembled the monkey

I can’t remember who threw the vase

if only I hadn’t said

kiss my ass
