APRIL POETIC ASIDES - POEM-A-DAY DAY 1- ARRIVAL


APRIL POETIC ASIDES - POEM-A-DAY DAY 1- ARRIVAL 
Spring Tree by George Hodan


Street Light by jose alhambra
(STREET LAMP ON "OUR STREET")


Green shoot

there after storms
salt watered
soil into uncertainty
there
centered in
browned grass
a single verdant
shoot
stands


***********************

In flagrante delicto

it begins in the belly
a cool chill trembling
in sanctuaries sacred
windows fade to paned   
pale-colored glass

it begins in the belly
and moves 
lithe fingers
cracking the crisp
dormant chrysalis 

until the butterfly
Doubt
flutters

free 

soaring in flagrante delicto

  2. I enjoyed both poems! "Green Shoot" rolls around so much in my mouth, I can almost taste it. Yes, the image of "salt watered" brings taffy to mind, but there's more to it than that. It keeps pulling me back in. Very nice!

  3. Lovely, Pearl. Both have lingering images and sensations, each different, but both strong. Great job.
