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.
My Reading Habits
Absorbing every word of Di Prima
Where collected poems of Lawrence wait
like Auden's Light Verse Collections lead fate
rewrite "letters." in Ottava Rima.
Would rather read some limerick by Lear
to giggle under breath in anapest
enjoy a laugh give serious a rest
put time into finding sense of humor.
Do not forget to leave the printed page
and join online to catch up with my friend
the latest from my co-workers and peers.
Though reading always takes center stage
a riveting novel I have to end
or manual when fixing a cars gears.
Reading a book on physics of sun
or Isaac Asimov on the Genome
the complexities found in chromosome
"There is a remedy or there is none!"
A real joy begins with McAfery
to join the dragons in her 'DragonFlight"
feel wind in hair as you fly by moonlight
the effect of excellent imagery.
Or feel that I am not reading at times
pick up anthology out of guilt
or story about rocket engineer.
Absorbing fee verse free of any rhymes
articles of lady sewing a quilt
and words of scripture to live without fear.
