Best Poem of Hans Ostrom

Langston Hughes

In a wilderness of reasons
not to write, he wrote. Just wrote.
Each word was the belief
in the possibility of the next.
He kept it going.

Mostly his days and words talk
quietly, though he could rant and rage.
Mention is what his voices usually do
in a world of self-convinced noise.

Truth mentioned is a sweet brass
note you’ll never forget. Writing,
Langston showed writing to be
an unashamed act, one of the few
in a shameful, shaming world. Words

grin. Words reside. Words throw
a meal together for unexpected friends,
make a garden...

Read the full of Langston Hughes

And Now, Whether

Today’s whether report
calls for increasing perplexity
in the morning hours,
followed by intermittent
quandaries in the afternoon,
with wonderstorms tonight.
Tomorrow ought to be fraught
with absurdity, though there’s
a possibility of patchy meaning late.
