Barbara Elizabeth Mercer Poems
February Moon - Storm Moon - Hunger Moon...
Shined in on me tonight A phosphorescent presence loomed Bathed me in my bed tonight Filled my lighthouse in the sky
Haiku 'Fast Flight Of Blue Jays
Haiku Fast flight of Blue Jays Descending on autumn's trees
The saving grace Of metaphor Allowing free intepretation To the reader's experience
Piano jazzing Keys twinkling Fingers flying fleeting feeling
Existing On The Inside Of Myths
Existing on the inside of myths Inside looking outward Inward - backward - forward Gears oiled - presuming truths
The saving grace
Allowing free intepretation
To the reader's experience
Boils the blood
Fear - disgust - Discussed
Beauty - anger
Slaves to faith
No faith - cynics
