Poem # 1

April is poetry month.  I am going to write and post one poem a day but first, I must explain.  I.  Do.  Not.  Write.  Poetry!  Toxic.

I love to read poetry, and admire those that write it…. So here goes.  An exercise in growth I hope, and those friends who ARE poets, critique is welcome.

Poem #1


Because it is Easter
On Friday
We walked Downtown.
The church-bells rang
And they echoed
Off the buildings
Off the pavement
Off the clouds.

"OH!  It is Good Friday!"
How has it gotten 
To this point?
This point
Where we
No longer
Pay Attention?
