Poet As In A Mirror: Tanka

POET AS IN A MIRROR

Inspire me please
Saying the unexpected
Revealing your deeps
Encouraged by your courage
To write something worth reading

Mary Oliver: In Memoriam

MARY OLIVER: IN MEMORIAM

Flesh and bone may decay
Her words, all the thoughts
All the feelings they evoke
Shall remain to nourish us

Verdict

VERDICT

Fully acknowledged
This terminality of ours
It’s about our value

It’s about what we’re worth
And uncovering who devised
The scale that measured it so

It’s about fighting or giving up
It’s about fighting for life
It’s like being like water

It’s about laughing daily
In the face of death
It’s about life

And dancing
Life and dancing
Until the end

And beyond

These Furrowed Brows

THESE FURROWED BROWS

You can spot thinkers
But what preoccupies them
Is it of value?

Worth

WORTH

An evaluation
Based on finance
Rather than on ethics

Is of such little value
To those whose home base
Transcends the mere material
