Ten Wild Horses Grazing in Corral:
One flew to Venice
for a gondola ride.

Nine wild horses grazing in corral:
One trotted off
to the Merry-go-round.

Eight wild horses grazing in corral:
One tightened belt for
a roller coaster ride.

Seven wild horses grazing in corral:
One sipped lemonade
mixed with  tea.

Six wild horses grazing in corral:
One did spinning jumps –
roller skating tricks.

Five wild horses grazing in corral:
One hopped a bus
to watch Big Sur.

Four wild horses grazing in corral:
One went in Convent
to sing A CAPPELLA chant.

Three wild horses grazing in corral:
One found a boxer dog
to take for walks.

to humans and cats.

One wild horse grazing in corral:
calligraphed it all
in a count-down poem.

This is the time

For you to compute the impossibility

That there is anything

But Grace.

Definition #186 Thank you

In the rain on the coast Maine in April, 2015

In the rain
on the coast
Maine in April, 2015

I give thanks I can

choose to be in Maine Friday

and home Saturday.

I give thanks I can

breathe at 40 or 75 degrees

as I travel home.

Frozen edges droop

Puddles leach to lubricate:

A Don squeeze in Spring!

Definition #184 Ars Poetica

An Ars Poetica poem

talks about the art of writing poetry,

presents the poet’s views on what a poem is

and how it should be written.

Tea in Maine

A poem is sound:       Ruth Grierson plays  violin.

A poem is memory:      Scottish jigs & ballads;

A poem is taste:            all kinds of music but rap!!!!!!

A poem is smell:            while we sip English Tea

A poem is a stage:        at the library;

A poem is a story:         hear about:

the ceremonial burning

                                        of old buildings that need replacement
the Fire of 1947;

                                      that stopped when the fireball hit the sea!
the flames brought forth

                                              the aspen, birch and new seeds that burst in the heat!
