THE POET BY DAY

Last Wednesday’s Writing Prompt (April 19,2017): “We’ve probably all been there and/or known someone who’s been there, thinking if they change where they live, who their married to, where they go to school, things will be better. Maybe they will, but probably not unless there are some internal changes. What’s your view or experience? Tell us in poem or prose.”

I think each of these poets did a fine job in responding. I enjoyed their work and know you will too.  Read on …

Parable of the Red Birds

The cardinals outside my window
Have two babies cuddled in the nest-
I peered in to see gray downy bundles
Rather ugly little fellows, mouths all agape.

Constantly flying to the little dears,
Dropping food in their open mouths.

They site “multiple system damage that may be irreversible. Permanent you guys. Here is the link for the warning if you are a doubting Thomas: https://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DrugSafety/ucm500143.htm. Take a gander real quick if you are reading this with an eyebrow raised. Trust me, I wish I had been given the opportunity to soak up this information before it was too late.

In 2010, I took…

like waters on rivers, days will flow, to weeks to months And years.. they make us float on Lakes, Oceans And Seas ready to Sail to Another Destination..
