Another Batch of Poems

Surrounded, and rather overwhelmed, by the media coverage of the 9/11 anniversary, I put up a few more poems, some posted elsewhere and some new, as a little oasis from the storm.

Tiger eats the strawberry
Cliff eats the tiger
Strawberry eats the cliff


Crabs in a tank
Money to the clerk
Crab in the sea


Knock on a thousand doors
The same familiar face
Answers each one


The moon
Pointing to a finger


An old tree
Sharing a moment
Cheek to bark


Smiling eyes meet
Waves bow
A cow is spared




Fearlessly unfolding
Destination unknown
The oak tree in the garden


You and I
High five
One hand claps


From the wood
Of the table top
My face looks out


Leaves of thought
Bud, flourish and fall
In an eyeblink


Round cushions
Square mats
Kind hearts
