The poet and the alphabet …

To the poet the alphabet is but a puzzle waiting to be solved.

Two-Minute Poetry Break – Restless by Carole Rossi Kenyon

Does the water know the winds caress?
Melancholy hearts flutter with unrequited care,
Should she fly, should she stay?
Should she lay, beneath this tree and dream,
Of places no one knows, of people no one sees?
Visions climb and mountains hold out rolling hills
In tender compromise
The land calls longing to enfold her in wild rambling woods,
She is ready to depart this place

Three Minute Poetry Break – Lives Unlived by Don Odom


The cemeteries are filled
with lives unlived
the stones with carvings forgotten

The vessels lay
in boxes decayed
in garments thoroughly rotten

If God would grant the corpse
one wish
what do you think it would be?

To rise on bony elbows
and gaze
on flowers and beauty unseen?

Or would it be
to return one day
to that moment sin first conceived

the lie, the look,
the deceitful grin
so that it might be retrieved?

The scales that block
the beauty of life
often are never shed

They rest on eyes
that never see
the blindness of the living dead
