CHRISTMAS EVE WITH LI PO

Folder: 
TROUBADOR'S CHOICE

 (a casually buzzed lament)

 

So it takes

a rainy Christmas Eve

 to rediscovedr Li Po;

 

to throw one back

with the great;

raise a drink

to a new drinking partner.

 

And it seemed likely

to garner a slight buzz

and a late night rush

 

as I step outside

still barefoot;

toes sinking into cool mud

and the ground remains

unwilling to freeze.

 

A possum is on the lam 

as I cautiously step along

and press flesh onto wet grass.

 

I toss a Kaiser roll

after the scurrying possum

and laugh at December 

and the early days of winter.

Li Bai, Li Pai, Li T’ai-po, and Li T’ai-pai

To be re-discovered soon. Hazy is good when reading poetry I think. No distractions. :D

Li Bai:

Moonlight before my bed

Perhaps frost on the ground.

Lift my head and see the moon

Lower my head and pine for home.
