Day 28

Ars Poetica

A poem should be
grassy as lawn


warm as a lizard
sunning on a wall

like dawn
after a good night’s sleep

greedy for attention

A poem should be
musical chairs

an aging aunt

a sharp turn
in a narrow lane

an unexpectedpause

A poem should be


Ars Poetica on Sunsets

At the end of the lane,
the sun fell on
an invasion of scarlet.
