Invisible

“The poet is

the priest

of the

invisible.”

.

— Wallace Stevens

twilight

in camouflage

concealed in color

birds chirp evening psalms

invisible

.

Haiku:

.

blizzard of brightness

an invisible world

a winter white out

.

Poem:

.

love lost, love gained

the backbone of music and verse

life’s tribulations to be explained

.

emotions usually hid in a closet

songs vicariously used to emote

seeking a ride on a fantasy rocket

.

love yourself, love others

some preach unconditional love

the best love comes from Mothers

.

when one is feeling down and small

it is best to remember

God loves us all

“One must

read poetry

with one’s

nerves.”

.

― Wallace Stevens

feel

the rhythm

the earth speaks

mother nature waxes poetic

sinews

.

Haiku:

.

rainbows perfect arc

leading to the pot of gold

puddles and flowers

.

Poem:

.

thank you soldier

I live a life or ease

with epaulets upon your shoulder

my freedom is your guarantee

.

from the American Revolution

to today’s police action

you defend the Constitution

democracy your sanction

.

only one day a year we celebrate you

that effort certainly pales compared to what you do

today we thank you on our blog

hoping it will become an eternal epilogue

.

Thanks to all who sacrificed and all who serve.
