Language Arts

Many of my poems are about the language arts.

pink clouds
span the horizon
seagulls take flight
stretching to read
new books

writing an essay
all I deleted
to say what I mean

turning the page
of an older book
the age in my hands

I discovered the new-for-me images at Reusable Art today.

The first is Peacock Feathers Heading.

The second is Peacock Feather Bouquet.

From the root-cellar
the last of the winter squash
still succulent,
the poem you wrote recalling
a grandmother’s hearty soup
