In times our poets prospered


Oh which Sufi
-they are great-
in times our poets
prospered
they uttered
from prosperity
and used so Big such words
but never heard of
Tankan, Wakan
the book of 1000
the Haiku's
engulfed on
endless beaches
from misery into
stranded pearls
they constitute
and reach us as
Hafiz, Omar
Basho or You,
like small brackets
dance little Degas'girls
contributing
-so much more-
enchanted
to entwine
the twirls
iridizing
Mystery
.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
