Flowers and donate if you can

Another April flower!  If you enjoy these poems, do donate please at the donate button.  I’m in the midst of a lengthy and difficult transition and re-entry back into the Bay Area from Denver, and  — I could use it and I do appreciate each and every dollar!   In order to continue receiving these visions, from the Poetry Monster above and below, I apparently need a job, though I have stated again and again, that the visions feel like job enough!  Even so… I am searching. So — don’t forget your local poet people, who is local to the globe, this earth and planet now.  And, thank you!!!  

I also want to thank everyone who has donated this month! I have never actively asked before, so it wasn’t easy to do so, but everyone who did send a bit of money, I really thank you from the bottom of my heart!  You are all super!

 night people

                                                                                                                 drinking champagne

                                                                                             waddling over to watch

                                                                                   a million criminal flowers       

                                                                  purple and bruised

Flowers Again

Winding down here on NaPoWriMo, I’ve been doing many poetry related things, which I will report on in time.  Here, my ongoing poem – Flowers, one poem for every shot of T I have taken so far.  That means I have over 570 flowers to write!

Flowers #34

 

in order to understand

 flowers                 we have to consider

loss

we have to consider

joy

the white flat background

a passage

an escalating sobriety —
