April showers -
a soggy kite held erstwhile

monday morning walk...
sun bathes the lake in warm light
cormorants smile
turtles rest on floating logs
and leaves leisurely float by
--Pat Geyer, US

beautiful blond boy
posed in his communion suit
ever in my heart.
rosary, bow, cross and smile
old photo of my father.

the asphalt
covered with cherry petals;
tracks of my car

fall from my scrapbook
he loved me then

joins the choir

a hummingbird flies
into my dream

of tears and loss...
awakening to rain

a halo
of budding leaves
the old oak tree

an icy wind
sweeps across the mountain top...
a sentinel rainbow

dare to fly
brave wings
seize each moment
the destiny of the world
awaits your
your timing
--Reason A. Poteet,US

Poetry by Pablo Neruda
And it was at that age ... Poetry arrived
in search of me. I don't know, I don't know where
it came from, from winter or a river.
I don't know how or when,
no, they were not voices, they were not
words, nor silence,
but from a street I was summoned,
frm the branches of night,
abruptly from others,
among violent fires
or returning alone,
there I was without a face
and it touched me.
I did not know what to say, my mouth
had no way
with names,
my eyes were blind,
and something started in my soul,
fever or forgotten wings,
and I made my own way,
that fire,
and I wrote the firts faint line,
faint, without substance, pure
pure wisdom
of someone who knows nothing,
and suddenly I saw
the heavens
and open,
palpitating plantations,
shadow perforated,
with arrows, fire and flowers,
the winding night, the universe.

And I, infitesimal being,
drunk with the great starry
likeness, image of
for myself a pure part of the abyss,
I wheeled with the stars,
my heart broke loose on the wind.
(Translated from the Spanish by Alastair Reid)
