Swooping

Poet's Corner

Height, falling, swooping
Skylarks catching air, rainfall
Drowns the fleeing mouse

A young man stood in front of me.  Slightly over-weight with a bad crew cut.  His left arm was heavily bandaged.  He held it out to me like an offering – a kind gesture.

“What happened to you?” I asked.  He dipped his head shyly and poked a toe at the grubby, coffee-stained carpet.

“It’s a long story.” He mumbled, “I was in love with a girl.  I loved her for a really long time.”

I like Autumn, I like Spring

“I like autumn”

“Well, I like spring”

“What’s so great about autumn?”

“Well, what’s so great about spring?”

“In Autumn, you can take walks and enjoy the cooler weather.

You can also smell the woodsy fragrance as the leaves change color.”

“In Spring, you can stroll beneath the warming sun and feel the milder breeze.

You can also see hints of new life, new green grass, and buds on the trees.”

“In Autumn…
