PUBLISHED POEM

My reluctant and very few consistent readers,

I sincerely hope that you had a wonderful holiday season. I must tell you that we have a sunroom where I keep a live tree decorated and lit the entire year. Some of us have a hard time letting go of hope and joy.
Now to writing. They year 1980 was a banner year for my poetry published by New Worlds Unlimited; they published two poems. Here they are.

EVERGLADES JOURNEY

Propeller spins,
And engine speaks a staccato song
to water and tree,
Sawgrass streaks by
in a maze of wildlife and nature,
Animals scurry-
Alligators lift their horny heads
And lacking patience with mankind
move on.
Free-
Gliding along a filmy surface of life
where nature exists as a power
not a tool.

I lived in Florida at one time and had an opportunity to ride in an airboat. This was the result of that experience.

HOPE

Hope,
Like tiny bubbles
in the murky depths
of liquid life,
Traveling to the surface
they expand,
Realizing only too late
they have traveled too far
and burst.

Take care my friends.

      My consistent reader,

      I’m glad you enjoyed the poem.
      The ride was fantastisc. I was with someone who knew the area and it was a fishing trip. The everglades is a vast slow-moving river with deep areas that form lakes; that is where we fished with great success.
      Thanks for your comment.
      By the way, you can see this experinece used in the novel I am currently trying the publishe, The Beast Awaits.

      Take care,
      Walt
