Best Poem of Richard St. Clair

Ponderosa Pines

Having no interest
in resolving my life's pain,
Ponderosa pines...
towering far above me,
they direct my gaze upward.

Read the full of Ponderosa Pines

Sonnet: Infirmity

A bug is bugging me: it is not time
To die just yet. How gray the winter sky
This solstice beating down on me, oh my,
Just time enough to spin another rhyme.
Far off a church bell mournfully is pealing
Monotones appropriate to this day –
I’m tired: too sick, too weary – though I may
Yet find within myself some comic feeling
Neither cynic nor harsh critic could resist:

[Hata Bildir]
