  65.     

Robert Fisher

I wrote this poem shortly after his death on January 17,2008.

Bobby Fisher, chess savant and master
Unparalleled among the best that played.
A champion, a genius, destroyer
Of chess opponents, this day passed away.
You either loved him or hated the man
There wasn’t middle ground. His time had come.
Eccentricities never lost his fans.
I am the proof, e pluribus Unum.
In life his brief existence was tragic
Perhaps in death we’ll gain understanding
Of genius. Chess his forte, his magic
Preoccupation gave us deepening
Enlightenment of Caissa, his mentor.
His spirit now with her forevermore.
 
Albert Ahearn
   
 

   
   
 

  66.     

Seagulls

A prodigious flock of seagulls
float seemingly, effortlessly
on a winter frigid river
like miniature polar floes.
Their harsh wailing and squawking calls
are muffled by the roaring sound
of cascade from an old dam.
Their idiosyncratic moves
manifest aquatic prowess:
Their twirling, swirling, eddying
against the current as though fixed
to each molecule of water
until they rise from the surface
into winters late morning mist.
 
Albert Ahearn
   
 

   
   
 

  67.     

Solemn Purpose

Poet!
recite to us
a monody. Let it
be sad. Make us cry for those that
have died.

Remind
us on this day
of mourning, why they died:
So that everyone may live in
freedom.
 
Albert Ahearn
   
 

   
   
 

  68.     

Solitary delight

Alone
but not lonely.
Pedaling along an
odoriferously perfumed
pathway.
 
Albert Ahearn
