Of Words A Pile

 

They say poetry some,

is of  pile words a just,

rhymed not or whether,

general which of in,

jot don’t a give they,

are are they what words but,

shudder ears and reluctant though,

they as might,

night ringing on keeps,

into the poetry on.

A Pile Of Words

 

Some say that poetry,

is just a pile of words,

whether rhymed or not,

of which in general

they don’t give a jot,

but words are what they are,

and though reluctant ears shudder

as they might,

poetry keeps on ringing

on into the night!

Lasting Impressions

What went ye out into the Wilderness to see ?

a man rich beyond measure

yet sharing the ordinary everyday ,

of those who sought and found

to some degree an unassuming kindness ,

an empathy without affectation

not to be found in trumpeted fanfares ,

but in a heart graced by

a shared Spirit and sustaining belief ,

leading and part of those led ,

alone

unadorned

unique

therein the sufficiency of a promise fulfilled

of a life well led ,

What went ye out into the Wilderness to see ?

a kid *

shoeless.*
