Simple Diction of Stone

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.

Simple Diction of Stone

A poem inspired by Kenneth Rexroth.



How much do I owe

discipline in art

an ability to share

a quick translation

this simple diction of stone.


Watch the start of day

the beginning of sunshine

filtered through the clouds.


No troubles found here

no question the white petals

reflect the sunlight.


The joy of moment

to stand still in the morning

do not disrupt birds.


This starts everyday

whether the wasps nest on porch

Birds of Prey fly by.


Hold onto sunrise

hope in a new beginning

flowers will bloom.


How much do I owe

Discipline in art

an ability to share

a quick translation

this simple diction of stone.

Good poem. "The white petals reflect the sunlight."

I was sitting outside yesterday looking at the stones in my drive - there are flints, pebbles, slates, all sorts, all colours - and they are fascinating!

I like the keen observation in this, Jamie.
