LOVING LEMONS

Standard

IN A TASMANIAN GARDEN

Under an autumn sky

My yellow lemons grew

Until the branches

Bulged with fruit

So I gifted all  to you

*

Under a winter sky

My lemon tree stood bare

I thought of all the bitterness

We couldn’t learn to share

ON A HIGHWAY IN TASMANIA

Standard

Recently I’ve been all the way to Tasmania and that’s the excuse for the long silence on this blog. But now I’m back, and still in poetic action.

Out walking on the highway one day I saw this road side shrine. They always make me wonder about the person who died and the tragic effects on their family.

 

 SHRINE

This is where the brakes  screeched

here on this highway

and I unknowing and unhearing

could not reach

nor try to say

just one last word

of healing.
