INTO THE GAPING MOUTH OF DAY

I stare at the flickering light
Dancing about in this cold windy cave
Water lapping at its knees
Gapping mouth that will house
All who venture too far out
On a day such as this

Like a trapped bird
I bounce off the walls
Trying to miss the waves
Cutting me to the quick
Like a sharpened blade off the shelf
On a day such as this

Would you like to gather in person, downtown and have a workshop then share our poetry? I would like to meet once a month to share and workshop poetry if I can get together 5 or more people interested. E-mail me poetryoncanvas@mac.com

Chasing the Rainbow
It's just out of grasp
Skinned my knee
Time to flee
If I jump I'll catch the tail
If not I shall surely fail
How can I get to the end
Like Right Now
I'm feeling stressed
I want to howl
To be the Best
I must be much Better
Look over my shoulder
At the other feller
Chasing and running
I'm running out of breath
To Catch the Rainbow
Will be my Death
