Ryan Brooks Poems
Dog and Cat, Around they go. Dog is excited, But Cat takes it slow.
Tumbling under and over, Endlessly rolling on, Above a field of clover, Forever heading toward the dawn.
Leaves of Green
The TV just shows blood and gore, What have we to be happy for? The sweet breeze that smells of dew,
next to the demands of the universe
(next to the demands of the Universe, even our most important errands are) INCONSEQUENTIAL.
Ode to the Earth
Twinkling light In a field From stars From water
Mirror, mirror, On the wall, If I push you, Would you fall?
Grains of Sand
How many grains of sand are there? Five jillion and seventy-tenner? Maybe I should count them all, Though it might take forever.
