    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

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.

A Thought Dwelt On

A thought dwelt on
can only grow—

and a weed is a bad thought
where a flower should be.

A thought dwelt on
is a thought given water,

but a weed deprived of water
withers away.
