#25 Celebrating American Month of Poetry


Muscled bared thigh

Free of robe highs

Pressing hard down and forward

His body tall, and sinewy motored

Wearing a long, groomed beard that looks wise

Revealing chiselled china lips, sized

In half pout

With soft determination and hello

The mystical peasant

On his left shoulder, sigh

Lies a nest of two birds that don’t want to fly

He stands dignified

As he roams the fields wide

With his sculptured bone walking stick on standby

The mystical peasant

His solemn eyes comply

Resting eternally upon mine, bull’s eye

His woven reed hat is lowered

Sheltering a long exquisite face flowed

His high cheekbones reflect the light high

His toes long and grappling, for a guy

Grasping each stone and mound of dirt dry

His ancestry line is Japanese shoreward

The mystical peasant

Japan, the ancient land of chi

Where the peasant meets the divine, string tie

You and your wife, the explorers

Came to me as a present to carry forward

Where you really are the soothing spirit of our why?

The mystical peasant

      "Mystical peasant" is a beautiful expression to me. It expresses how divinity can be obtained through the everydayness of our lives.

      I love "mystical peasant." It is the "mystical peasant" who provides for the world through his labor. Thank you. Jamie
