does size matter/ in a poem?

sun and sand photography

big things in small packages

 butter churned days

a cascading sun, fills the hills

flowing to a quite stream,

Where a clothesline is at full sail

close is a cabin with a fire warmed hearth

a field of daisies stands with outstreched faces

worshiping a sky of sunshine and white doilies

echoing softly a distant fiddle plays

while I take a turn on the old butter churn

time gathers bones to the grave

so embrace the rosebuds of May

before a ring of fine silver

gathers on the house of winter

©thomas benzenhafer


Listen to what the eye sees

Music in the windows of the soul

Eternal drifts of sounds

That the heart makes in joy and pain

A mortal record in immortal thought,

Strings plucked resonate

On the moral high ground

Switching genius with infamy

Within a blink of time.

you have a gift for words. Though small the poems may seem, they are quite strong indeed. - JJ
