Two Poems on Poverty

Two Poems on Poverty

.



I had

a bowl once

but it filled up

with dust



my ribs

stick out

like

empty spoons



I used

to smell bad

but even that

ran away



a penny?

a penny?

it’s too heavy to hold…



..



From Han Shan

This poem is my version of #25 from Han Shan’s Cold Mountain



The swaying grain is not yet ripe

my bowl is empty with the last of the old

10 Years of Christmas Stories in Zine Musea

Dear Reader,



Musea has an annual tradition - a Christmas story for the December issue. Did you miss any of them?



There is a lot I like to put into each short story, and not much room to squeeze it into - only 8 pages per Musea issue, with the front page being a photo! That means everything has to happen in 7 pages.



I try to write, so that each story first HAS a story, a good plot. Then some interesting characters caught up in something challenging, some… Continue

Snow Poems

Snow Poems

1.
the fire
went out
the cold
came back

2.
billions of stars
fall as snow
and sink through the trees
to the forest floor

3.
white chipped walls
and snowing outside

4.
white rabbit
disappears

5.
melting snow
on the water

6.
each ant carries
one flake away

7.
flakes melt
the snowman's gone

To the judging of birds and bumble bees
