Compare The Cold Sunrise And Be Grateful: Revolutionary Blogging Sonnet

February 7, 2016

SoCal Palm tree sunset -- warm sea breeze at San Clemente BeachShe would send me photos/
of tall SoCal tropical trees/
silhouetted in the red sunset;/
dancing in the warm sea breeze.

As if to entice me/
to visit and to stay./
To warm my feet in the sand/
and watch the palm trees sway.

I returned the photo favor/
of a frigid, streaming sunrise:/
A frosted cottonwood silhouetted/
against cold blue mountain skies.

T’was not to tempt her, nor to say I was coldly sad,/
but to remind her to be grateful for the warm beauty she had.
Cold Sanpete County frosted cottonwood sunrise

Feeling Again Through Frozen Feet — I’s Just Gotsta #2: Revolutionary ImproVerse Free Verse Poem

January 17, 2015

Walking into Utah Lake and the Spanish Fork River, January, across snow and ice: tennis shoes and footprints in the river bottomThe pain
pulses
through my peds.

I can’t rememberBare feet in the sand, Utah Lake, January, Sandy Beach and the Spanish Fork River
why I stepped/
onto the ice
and snow,
then
into the gently flowing
melted
river.

Was it to prove Footprints in the river bottom mud, January, Sandy Beach, Utah Lake
that I could do it?
Was it a memory
of polar bear dips past?
Was it a beach,
and I’s just gotsta?

Or was it just/
to experience the shock
of being able/
to feel
again?

Northbound 5:20 p.m. RR Pluses And Minuses: Revolutionary Blogging Sonnet

March 11, 2014

Westward view of Utah Lake near Lindon from the 5:20 pm Northbound Front RunnerThe wheels clack and moan./
The coaches bend and sway./
The rails sing along/
to the song of the railway.

You glimpse into hidden back yards;/
junk noone wants you to see./
Ripped apart trash and old cars./
Back-porch sitters, lonely.

Then scenery opens to your view/
that noone else appreciates./
Beaches, marshes, prairies too./
Mountain vistas, sunset lakes.

A new perspective is yours to gain,
to ponder and enjoy when you ride the train.
