  69.     

First Snow (haiku)

First snow
gentle *drop* from heaven
hands raised, eyes closed
 
Laurence Overmire
   
 

   
   
 

  70.     

For a Loaf of Rembrandt

Funny how
Artists
Have to die
In order to make a living.

Only then, six-feet under
Feeding maggots
Do people finally begin to understand
What the hell they were trying to do.

And suddenly
All that junk they tossed in the back of the attic
Gathering dust
Is worth

Millions! ! !


(Previously published in The Short North Gazette, July 2000)

  71.     

Formation

The poor sentence was alone
Without a paragraph, a context
Or reason for being
Independent, quite insufficient
And certainly unappealing.

But brandished in a poem
Titled, with a new coat of
Arms, it stood proudly
A force to be reckoned with
Fired with the mettle of the age.

  72.     

Frank Lloyd Wright

Out of empty space
Wood, mud, boulder, brick and
Stone
He created completely new worlds
Dream realities
Enchanted domesticities
Reverent sanctuaries
To soothe the battered senses
And send the spirit
Leaping
Into an unbounded future
Of exhilarating promise and
Unimagined possibility.
