I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.
Haiku on Growing Old
A half buried rock
that holds child's watercolor
through every season
cone lies on animal path
to remain all year
Sometimes they gather
the hummingbird and squirrel
moments of magic
my damn beard grows long
along with the crabgrass outside
our brown and grey time
