GINGKO

*

They saw they thought
in April woods
the blooming light
of a spring dogwood
but it was
last year's translucent
gold leaves
glowing on
a gingko tree.

DIET OF WORMS


One heard of The Diet of Worms
and thought of robins
swallowing whole
beings who squirm
Others
of the papal attempt
to arrest Martin Luther
on which Pope Leo X stood firm.

 

Footnote:

The Lutheran Church has asked

forgiveness for Luther’s

virulent Judaophobic writing. That

was not the reason for the attempt

to arrest him.

RIB CAGE IN HOSPITAL


a vision of a woman

in the hospital…

a live bird trying

to escape her rib

cage…

was it the soul

trying to leave the body…

or the sickness caused

by eating a chicken?

Listening to them
chirp after three days of rain
soothing to the soul.
