Today our poet is Liz Eisen.
Written by Liz Eisen
Wandering down a street
the ancient storefronts
bakery, hardware, consignment, theatre, café.
Finding the muse,
a hidden door off the main
behind which I will find respite.
being in this room filled with baskets and shelves
of hanks and skeins and balls of fibers.
I watch quietly as the gray-haired woman
who learned the twisting of the yarn and needles so many years ago
brightens as the knits and purls reveal themselves to her again.
Our poet today is Laura Beasley (administrator’s apologies for posting the wrong poem yesterday!)
Written by Laura Beasley
Taking time to write song-singy sonnet,
Choosing word that can’t quite rhyme with vomit.
Because I’m fed up with the life I lead,
I’d rather stay home in a bath and read.
I choose the cheerful smiling all the time
And writing poems with happy-sounding rhymes.
When empty insides yearn to be carried
Instead of giving until I’m buried.
I’m far from home where my friends love me so,
The safe places where I know I could go.
It would be easy to be sad like some
But it’s not long before I have some fun.
Our path is bright and it’s the path I walk.
I can see light and I can walk my talk.
Our poet today is Mary Rose Betten with a poem for Easter just past –
Three Haikus for Easter
written by Mary Rose Betten
You are my sea God
White caps, waves, my anchor
Save me, i’m drowning
My domestic heart implores
Grant me a passport
Teach us to bloom through the snow
Give us Easter hearts
April Showers, May Flowers. What is it about the month of April. In memory of a loved one, our poet for today is Barbara Force.
Written by Barbara Force
I didn’t want you to leave
You didn’t want to go.
But lymphoma became leukemia
And so, the end of the show.
My lungs could find no air
The tears streamed down my face.
Courageously and gracefully Dan left us
No one can take your place.
