From The Gleam Of One's Sorrows. (4 assorted short poems)

Updated on March 9, 2010

From The Gleam Of One's sorrow.

In the prism

of a tear
many colors

are reflected
from the darkness

of one's soul
leaking out

through its windows

Perhaps there

is hope
to know that

even a tear
can be lovely

in its natural form
bringing some comfort

to those who weep.




I wanted to go back,
but you can't back,
because it's gone,
Time rearranges,
an old familiar place
or face changes,
and moves on.




Mid -Afternoon Concerta.


There is harmony
in birds chirping,
over lonely crickets
friction of love,
as bullfrogs add some bass,
I tap my foot,
humming along,
to this symphony of
God's traveling orchestra.

Even my darkest of days

can be lightened

by the melodies

played endlessly

to cheer me.



Naive: A Visual!

Naive is

a native
without his T-
-shirted about

his middle,
huge pot

belly hanging
thinking he

is well dressed.

      I sat on a plane next to Mike Pinarro of Iron Butterfly as I was going toward a second "tour". He tapped on a small tape recorder and emitted strange sounds. He had just joined "the band" and was writing some of the Metamorphosis album. The plane landed in LA. I was going on to San Diego. The stewardess said, "The Iron Butterfly has just debarked". I saw Mike Pinarro's (spelling?) picture on the cover of the Rolling Stone. His joining the Iron Butterfly was announced. The word made me remember. Thanks

      MFB, From the Gleam of One's Sorrow, truly hits me where I live! Thanks for such a accurate and descriptive poem about a tear shed in sorrow.

      And since I anxiously await the improvement in health that the warmer weather provides me, I truly love, Mid-Afternoon Concerta.
