I Watch and wait
For Poetry Bursting in
. . . . . . . .
The OED word of the day for the erasure poem | commentary is 'old year.'
Thank you all for keeping me company in 2012 and for your always much enjoyed and appreciated comments! Wishing you a happy and safe 2013.

was the spontaneous poetry,
when we finally understand
the beauty of a woodland garden
covered with thousands of daffodils
grace and infinity of nature,
every vista a cathedral, every bough a revelation
. . . . . . .
The OED word of the day for the erasure poem | commentary is 'revelation.'
Happy solstice, winter or summer, depending on your hemispherical location! And happy holidays to all, as I take a quick break to be with family & without computer.

You and I
start from the idea
of a soul secretly hidden
the shadowy, blended with the light,
the Moments the poet prefers,
fiercely true to experience
. . . . . .
The OED word of the day for the erasure commentary is 'Marchen,' a fairy tale in the Germanic tradition.

to Independent travel,
over every inch of anything,
like putting on mileage
. . . . . .
The OED word of the day for the erasure commentary is 'gricer,' a kind of trainspotter.
The message spelled out in this Buenos Aires sketch done last week is "Silence is not health." It appears across from where "Las Madres de la Plaza de Mayo" still have a presence. More BA sketches are here.
