Fish of a Feather...From the Book

Sometimes, when I have nothing to hide between the lines, my written thoughts, and my poetry need no explanation. As when sunshine comes to melt our boy’s fear away with natural things that have always fascinated him, like dinosaurs, birds high in the sky, and fish that fly.

Fish of a Feather

Fish of a Feather

Outside father’s old Oldsmobile window
Slipping down the highway
Much faster
Than mother would like
Birds reach with graceful wings
Gliding through crystal-clear-skies
As fish might slide through water
On a late night Jacque Cousteau show,
Or when we watch through moving car windows.

This Magnificent Throe

Soon this magnificent throe
Will be joined by a multitude of others
As fall gathers her schools together
And summer’s once vacant skies
Fill with a chattered sound so beautiful
As ten thousand wings
And maybe more
Will take fearlessly
To a choreographed height

Stitching Dreams Together

That stops the beating heart
For just a breath, or two
Bidding summer a fond farewell;
For there is no fear
When you own the sky
Soaring at will into the very edge
Of illusions birth
Stitching dreams together
As one.

Fall 1958

I have been writing since the beginning of time it seems, not because I want to write, but because I have too. My favorite form of writing is poetry, all kinds and types of poetry.

Thank you Steve, C.D., Delicia, and WOGIAM. I answered each of you once, but my answers must have got lost somewhere in the back pages of wikinut or something...God Bless each of you.
