Albert Ahearn Poems
财 富 比 您 #...
A fortune cookie changed my life. I suggest that you wipe the smiles From your faces my skeptic friends. It’s true and attributable
Our hearts cleaved that horrific day. The early morning sun shined bright. No clues were noticed-giveaways that could forewarn the urbanites.
Splendor in the grass
Come; lie with me in the grass Of summer and feel the cool green Blades give ground to our presence here. Smell the white clover my dearest?
I walk alone, bewildered, scared to death. I haven’t any memory... survey Through ash and try to think...I snatch a breath And try again. The air is foul today!
Fire And Ice
If snowflakes set aflame the ground They touch and wintry winds abet The flames, would she and I this day always remain deeply in love?
Greenhouse Gas (Triolet)
The features of the Triolet are: · 8 lines. · Two rhymes. · 5 of the 8 lines are repeated or refrain lines.
The Day Lily
The magnificent perianths Of the Day Lilies with their six Spreading bright orange arms (funnel-formed) Fixed in their clustered colonies
I watched a maple leaf’s descent to ground. It’s downward swaying motion, every now And then a pirouette without a sound Until it came to rest so gently down.
Poets Are Born
Good poets are born, not fashioned. The masters of sterility write verses in prose and christen them in the name of Poetry.
There was a time when I knew she loved me. Yes, that was a very long time ago. Her every word and deed, the way that she Looked at me, her way of saying, hello!
The tiny marks they mean so much their presence makes for clarity. They give a script a final touch and make for better poetry.
Idiom: No love Lost
Love poems, how trite they become. Their hackneyed themes we want to scream. We purposely shy away from That genre, teeming so it seems
The calendar foretells summer but the trees, fauna and I know that Autumn is now upon us in spite of the Gregorian.
It's 2 a.m. and for the life of me I can’t sleep. Perhaps too many iced green Teas. It doesn’t bother me you see Not getting rest I mean, it’s the caffeine

财 富 比 您 认 为 快 将 来
A fortune cookie changed my life.
I suggest that you wipe the smiles
From your faces my skeptic friends.
It’s true and attributable
To that tasteless of all cookies
The one that they present to you
With the tab after you’re finished
Eating their fine Chinese cuisine.
I broke it in two exposing
The faux message on the paper:
Wealth will come sooner than you think.
After leaving the restaurant
I purchased from a grocery
Store just a few shops up the block
