handfuls of cookies
lighten the spirits of those
eating day old bread

eternal rest

eternal rest
even death’s laughter
makes me scribble these poems
before my last breath

cactus blossoms find
me sleeping nearby snoring
louder than the bees

slow past budding trees
somewhere inside this old head
a song is starting

It's all right. . .

It’s all right to be poor
yet not to have a stench of uncaring.
Good to have shelter.
Lonely and quiet.
At peace.

History is good - keeps us grounded. This ancient chinese poet reminds us people have always found a way to mix poetry & drink:

"“When you write in prose, you cook the rice. When you write poetry, you turn rice into rice wine. Cooked rice doesn’t change its shape, but rice wine changes both in quality and shape. Cooked rice makes one full so one can live out one’s life span . . . wine, on the other hand, makes one drunk, makes the sad happy, and the happy sad. Its effect is sublimely beyond explanation.” – Wu Qiao

We look at houses

Us old geezers have to laugh at ourselves, because everyone else is laughing at us anyway. Thanks to Luke for publishing this today =:-)

We look at houses

20 years old and laugh
40 years old in disgust
60 years old and wonder who could live there

We are older than houses
& wonder why we wonder

honest & accuracy on versewrights today

honest

destiny is good
full deep self isolation
breathes odors deeply

the peeling paint is
beautifully falling from
the walls to the floor

I need contentment
to form a new opinion
of my newest self

See accuracy online =:-)
Thank you Carl Sharpe!

Reading

a poem is a cholla needle
embedded deep through skin
when withdrawn the scar lengthens
time heals the pain
the scar remains forever
