Connections: April 8.18

Understated

concentrated

richness-sated.

Simple guise

bewitching eyes

a depth belies.

Seduction incredible

memory indelible

the poem edible.

 

And so, dear reader, in honor of Poetry Month, it behooves us to eat more desserts.

And to use more words like “behooves.”

Many thanks to the poetic soul of S.W. Berg and his Photo Archives.

Connections: April 21

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Tuck this in your docket

a poem for your pocket

a sonnet for your vest

or line of anapest

today in bits of paper

in literary caper

we raise a silent cry

against the plain and dry

and summon muses hence

with their accoutrements

metaphor and simile

rhythm light and nimble-y

poetry’s declaration

of determined preservation.

Happy Poem-In-Your-Pocket Day, dear reader!
