Childhood, long ago

<a name="#seventeen"> Childhood, long ago </a>

Early spring thaw in childhood,
New water flowing through slush and ice
Sun sparkles on snow

Asleep on the train

Take off and landing
Haughty, smelly ship.

Lima/Peru

<a name="#twenty"> Lima/Peru </a>

Dust, Noise, and bustle.
Flame red trees pampered and green.
Lima - the dry sprawl

Green Mountain and high terrace
Wild Urubamba

Machu Picchu

<a name="#twenty two"> Machu Picchu </a>

High, lost, abandoned,
Jungle sandaled, cloud clothed, stone boned
Machu Picchu lives

Autumn in Arabia

Post by burdick » Tue Apr 15, 2003 5:38 am

<a name="#twenty three"> Autumn in Arabia </a>

Golden sun,
flaming beds of Marigold.
Several sleepy orange and black butterflies
Mix with the liquid call of the Bulbul
And the pungent flowers.

Green Queen

Post by burdick » Thu Apr 24, 2003 12:38 pm

<a name="#twenty four"> Green Queen </a>

The queen cuisine at Halloween:
Fifteen jelly beans and tangerines!
On the other hand, vanilla beans
And aquamarines are unforeseen!

This submarine is not unclean
With the harmonic mean between.
Grieve for greek grain not coffee beans,
For the mujahideen is May Queen.

contentment

<a name="#twenty five"> contentment</a>

Dusty warm sun patch
soft breeze and honeysuckle
black cat sleeps within.

Ode to a moment

Post by burdick » Thu May 15, 2003 3:12 pm

<a name="#twenty six"> Ode to a moment </a>

You have hurt me deeply!
What you said may well be true
But still
Strain and explain this mundane pain.

Give me money, money, money!
It will fix this like the river Styx
Oh please
Be my funny honey sunny sugar bunny.

I need a new computer do-dad,
That will record those things I can’t afford.
You see,
I need to plead and succeed…guaranteed!

Give me money, money, money!
It will fix this like the river Styx.
Oh please,
Be my funny honey sunny sugar bunny.

What! You think I mock you?
I didn’t mean a thing unkind!
That is,
Maybe a little brittle belittle acquittal.

Give me money, money, money!
It will fix this like the river Styx
Oh please,
Be my funny honey sunny sugar bunny.

Little Joe Poet

Post by burdick » Tue May 20, 2003 11:19 pm

<a name="#twenty seven"> Little Joe Poet </a>

I sang this little ditty
I thought it was rather pretty
Humming upon the way.
Along came a critic
Who was somewhat cynic
And frightened my muse away.

Facts of little interest

Post by burdick » Wed May 21, 2003 6:09 pm

<a name="#twenty eight"> Facts of little interest </a>

A dark red is felicitous
And yellow is a happy tone.
Green and red is often movement,
Whether in wood block print or poem.

White and anshoku are death signs.
Black and moshoku are unkind
While inshoku is good forturne!
What! Have I left you all behind?

winding the wind

Post by burdick » Fri May 23, 2003 6:02 am

<a name="#twenty nine"> winding the wind </a>

A question, or two, I would like to wind
Perhaps, in it, the wind is redefined?
I do not wish to seen as unkind
So let me not the winding wind malign.
What is this orange doing here?

ancient wisdom

Post by burdick » Sat May 31, 2003 2:47 pm

<a name="#thirty"> ancient wisdom </a>

Fear is ancient wisdom, past its’ prime.
Anger arms us with foolish courage,
While love gives strength the Other to find
And hate creates a black hole of death.

Reason seeks what philosophers call truth
And logic acts as her handmaiden.
Freedom sets the questing being loose.
Existence expands explosively.
