“Every Age”*

Every Age its pain;

Every Place its mute horrors:

Yet, both yield flowers!

 

  • (A 4:22 a.m. awakening forced me to pen and notebook for this.  I tried twice – earlier – to put it off: it was freezing outside and not much better inside, and I made a solemn vow “I will remember and write it down after the sun stirs my bones.” Wouldn’t listen; wouldn’t take that lame promise – again – the pregnant phrases wormed over three full pages, written by the light of a one-diode Sidewinder handcrank phone-charger (which fits not any phone I know but provides a winderful** spotlight for midnight excursions for cookies-n-milk or even an insistent haiku wanting its page-time.  I tried – twice – to edit “winderful** spotlight…” but the newly coigned word kept insisting.  Worse than small dogs, I tells ya! Poems! Baah! Humbug!)

Sanford airport said

twenty-seven froze degrees:

here, I check. No ice!*

 

  • (But that afternoon I go check on the sweet potato bucket farms and notice the upended garbage-can impromptu birdbath has one-quarter inch of ice floating as a unified foe above a very cold lake.  No other ice on similar solid – or extemporaneous – such bird-pool on the other three cardinal points of the house.  The Florida native “Sleeping Hibiscus” cuss me as I walk the northern border and witness their dire straits: they will require much surgery and I will compost them under a tall hedge.  Some of the ‘biscus shoots o’er-topped the Bald Cypress youth on that North side, just past the 10-foot marker of the rooftop.)
