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

Natural Voice

Speak in the fullness of your heart
And the silent listens to you
Speak in the depth of your heart
And your words ring true
Expressions formed to flow through all time
In a rhythm that is so new
Write in the breadth of your heart
All things living are listening to you
Record your natural voice
All esteem your choice

[Hata Bildir]
