Best Poem of Duane Botzek

Spring Lilacs

Eyewitness of nature’s loom
When lilacs with long
Locks of blooms
Illumine my kitchen counter
Before the vase
Gathers them…
Scenting, banqueting
Crafting and dining
A living room

Their bright aroma
Shrieks out ascent of May
Accented by green leaves
Where birds nest - engulfed in perfume;
Sun, and color-woven
In lilacs’ purple costume
Springing through
The threaded tapestry
Of natures loom

Read the full of Spring Lilacs

To Quiet... To Hold On

Each life needs
It’s own quiet place
Each life needs
To savor joy’s taste
A place where time stops
But for a moment worry is gone
Each life needs to quiet...
To hold on

[Hata Bildir]
