Best Poem of Joe Howell

Childhood Dreams

Sunlight peeps thru closed curtains
like a sleepy child, nodding in - out
yet you sleep. the wave of pre-dawn
passion, renaming lost childhood dreams

I often wonder about some childhood friend,
how at the time we were pardners, for life
what has become of him? is he sitting
somewhere with a cup of coffee?

I touch your skin, to gently introduce you
to a new day, and you with a smile, say
'I was just dreaming about you' thus
leaving my thoughts of childhood friends

Read the full of Childhood Dreams

Pulp Adiction

I am a simple minded man
learning was by doing
books have their pages
but you are what i want to read

your pages are as much a mystery as
those strange markings on cave walls
your button nose, breathes pulp
that i asperiate on, turning blue

[Hata Bildir]
