Whirlwinds And Plum Blossoms


Wind sweeps petals around 
Us in spring and we swirling 
Go disguised as dustdevils--
Observe without bias and
Classify our observations
In congress of whirlwinds.
We suspect we are mammals.

Ten Bucks


[This image depicts  paper currency, solely a work of the United States Government, is ineligible for US copyright,  therefore in the public domain]

I've written poetry
about 60 years
And earned maybe
Ten bucks for it --
Which provided
Encouragement
To keep at it.
Now I'm an old
Man, but still a
Young poet --not
A bad bargain
For ten bucks.

Pansy



Splash of color over
A decaying can--
Some music cast into
Time-- plays sunlight
Like a chime, a flash
Forgotten, a rhyme, a
Tone brief and bright--
A life of its own.

Past Untitled



Life selects
Certain molecules.
Even in this thought,
A trail of atoms
Changes the future.
