Wonderful poem Sharon!


This is wonderful! If I ever teach a class on odes again, I'd love for my students to read this.

Have you read Pablo Neruda's Odes to Common Things?


Thanks, both of you -- and Rachel, I'm flattered. Of course you should always feel free to use any of my poems. And I don't think I have read that Neruda -- and I bet it's in my bookcase.

Sadly, I have to wait till next week . . .

After the storm, my mind cleared.

And a high wind arose and blew the tropics north.


running quartz crystals through a blender.

sand through your engines.

bubbles in your bays.

estuaries reaching out toward forbidden seas...

sand through your eyes.


5 June 2007

Calm as baby's breath

as peaceful as the storm's eye

Clouds spread and drawn with rough strokes of stratospheric winds

a warm and windy tropical day.


7 June 2007

Black water at dusk.

Lighting on the horizon.

Warm winds coming in across the darkening waters.

A flash of white wings as an egret takes flight.

And Thunder like God clearing his throat.


8 June 2007

Morning star in the still of the clear, dark waters.

a sky as clear eyed as a young girl.

bruised and tattered storm remnants limp off in the gathering light.
