Polar Politics

A tale of two candidates in Senryū:

                              1.

There is always one

Marching to a different tune

Harshly subversive

                             2.

At least there is one

Dancing to his own rhythm

Hardly subversive

…which is which?   You decide.

A Plethora of Poets

Today I went back

To school for a refresher

Course in writing from the heart

And speaking straight from the soul. 

* Thank you to the Authors of “Room for Poetry” for planning the reading and inviting others to participate.

And Thank You “Book People” for providing the space and hosting this mad gathering!

And most hearty thanks to the other readers who offered up the words of their hearts and souls as well.
