d’Verse Poets Pub – Poetics: Beyond Meaning or The Resolution of Opposites


within its branches
the ancient gnarled apple tree
harbors fresh new life

from Paul Dunbar’s The Paradox: I am the bud and the blossom, I am the late-falling leaf


d’Verse Poets Pub – Poetics: travels in the wild

(about a squirrel hunting in the mountains)

peaks covered in Oaks
squirrel hunting in the mountains
has found Nirvana


d’Verse Poets Pub – Poetics: Look into my Eyes


wisdom unspoken
golden eyes that know my heart
the soul of a cat
