    Hi, thanks for reading. I enjoy your pieces mucho. How are things in Michigan? Remember it fondly, I do. There is nothing like Lake Superior.
    Cheers, MM

Best Poem of Eric Torgersen

New Leaves

In the kitchen window
the coleus I cut down to stumps
to make cuttings for friends
is spreading new leaves to the sun.

Small hairs
the light catches
rise from the new leaves;
red seeps into green
along the veins.

The newest
is brightest.

The plant
cocks intelligent
at the sun
and looks and looks and looks.

I would visit my friends
but feel troubled and shy.

Read the full of New Leaves


Keep the tale, it's free, just bring the book back.
Eat the fish, but bring the line and hook back.

No one out here lives by bread alone;
relish the coq au vin, but send the cook back.

Don't let a warning chill your lovely days,
just lock the door, please. Don't invite the crook back.
