Poems Galore


To walk in heavy blanket humidity,
green trees thick from summer rain,
an occasional, not breeze---
but space, in little nips of air.

To be in shiny beads sweating,
green trees thick from summer rain,
a quickened steady, not aerobic---
but steam, in bigger beats of blood.

To bathe in soul's wish for roaming,
green trees thick from summer rain
my limbs moving, not rushed---
but soaked, in ceilings full of sky.

If you love poetry and have not been to the you are in for a real treat. If you don't know if you like poetry and want to find out, by all means visit and bookmark the page. My sister Denise sent me the link some months ago. Today I searched the site for a poem called "Roots and Wings." I don't remember the particular author and the results came back with 490 poems. There is an immense children's section. Kenzie and I know almost all the Nursery Rhymes, do you? The titles may not be underlined on your screen, but each one is a link to the Poetry Foundation.
