Connections: February 19.17

de-d-15How do they, frozen,

silently speak

the language of contentment?

in weathered rosy cheek?

in simple glass of ale?

in button and in vest?

what makes us smile back

at their pantomimed behest?

More thanks to the S.W. Berg Photo Archives.

And accolades to artist Bäbel Kölberg, whose studio, Kunst aus Beton,

is in Meerbusch, Germany, across the Rhine

from this Dusseldorf brewery. (No wonder they smile!)

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!
