Poetry Space Fall 2020

Filed under Featured Columns, Art Happens, Share it Here, Arts and Poetry

 

Fall is upon us, though the earth still burns. Such a confusing and groundless time for us all.

For this edition, we’re delighted to bring you two poets new to Poetry Space, and two poems that we think travel well together. Please enjoy, and send us your new work!

Jeff Fink, Coordinator of Poetry Space

 

 


Granting Gold

I kneel
beg for a poem.
A Haiku will do
counting syllables
five lily pads in pond
seven chirping crickets
five chanting monks in temple.

I also taste Tanka
full of sorrow.
Grape tomatoes
I toss in my mouth
one at a time. They burst.
I miss them.

A pleasure in ancient treasures
lit candles, water bowls
at a white altar. Ten fingers
come together in prayer
resting in center
of chest
I Am
Poem.
