They Always Return To A Clean Home: Revolutionary Email Free Verse Poem

April 3, 2016

putting up a martin house in Lake Winneconne, April 2016I listened to a Prophet’s voice
on the Sabbath,
then stood on a ladder/
in a frigid Wisconsin lake
to put up a clean bird house,
as directed by my father.

For us both,
holy, cleansing events
have happened
in that same water,
and purple martins
fly in
from Brazil
on the south wind.

Learning From Willows, Water, Martins, Sunsets: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Poem

May 3, 2011

CyranoWriter: Purple Martins Sunset under Willows on Lake WinneconneUnder sunsetted,/
purple martins/
tandem tangoes./
They ask/
who will join me/
on the shore,/
to gain more/
and insight/
as the day/
fades/to tender night./

Facing water, west,/
teaches you best.
