"Poetry and poets (and kitties), Mister Editor!
A new post of favorite poets and their poems!"
Yes, poetry! As presented in our last post, There is no escape from poetry... every moment shall be made into poetry... every moment is eternity.
-R. H. Blyth
from Peggy Dugan French (of print pub. SHEMOM fame), her latest blog post (at Happy Friday poems)...
poet Rebecca Lilly...
As if wind questioned
it, one crow lifts at sundown,
a blindman's eyebrow.
Silence. Then a train's
horn echoes through the distance
dim with rising mist.
Each question, a bird,
the seer said. To know the truth,
follow the flight's curve.
assistant editor Kitty Kali: "And! Our bear creek haiku #161 will feature these most mewtiful poets and their poems!"...
poet Steve Ausherman, Albuquerque, New Mexico...
of UFOs over the city.
My inner child rejoices.
Last night's dreams
By falling snow.
poet James B. Peters, Cottontown, Tennessee...
Here are a few thoughts.
The sky's aglow After the rain
The harvest moon rising The silence
Deer on the lawn In morning fog.
In the shade Hot and dry
Of the old barn The neighbor's mower
Three summer born calves Raises a dust cloud
poet Patricia Carragon, Brooklyn, New York...
I'd rather kiss your cat
assistant editor Frosty: 'Lucky Kitty!"
cat leaves heart-shaped poop
inside your slippers
smell like tuna
noble assistant editor Frosty: "Our beloved Judith Partin-Nielsen!"...
that fortress of stone
to be seen what is the cost
and known and needed of this lost land?
for those things more than blood,
that are lacking. To history or beauty
climb its towers of beauty or anyone's broken
and open its ornate doors heart
that lead deeper and deeper
into the paths of belonging.
another haiga from our Peggy Dugan French's "Friday Poems!"
poet Nancy L. Dahl, Ypsilanti, Michigan...
have an open mind love that was given
regardless of what happens memories are never lost
have an open heart internal light shines
poet Carl Mayfield, Albuquerque, New Mexico, from little books press
artist, Wayne Hogan...
