    Larry Kimmel's poems are very very beautiful. I'm into Imagist poetry, and he writes it so well. Very subtle, very clever, the words not intrusions, not pinpointing to meanings, but expressions. Very impressionistic pieces, and very much a joy to read, and reread. BWF.

Best Poem of Larry Kimmel

Branch After Branch

Slats of clear gold sunlight
and snow like fur on every branch
and every branch after branch after branch
as far as thought can reach...

I go to see if our road's been plowed.
The many small birds melt
before my boots and frosty breath.

Branch after branch, vast in its snowy hush,
the universe is as big as you think it is -

and maybe one or two trees more.

View From A North Window

For a moment, the sun
on a red barn, dying,
on dry fields still as a gold death-mask
warmed yellow only to the eye
beneath the winter-prophesying sky,
before night's shadow gathers the last straws
of afternoon to its scrawny breast;
the sun on a red barn, dying,
resurrects a lone child, playing.
