I Am Here

Words and Image ©2017 Clarence Holm

I am here under sky
   That is endless.
I am part of the horizon
   That calls to me.
The wind that is blowing
   Across the prairie,
Is just one part
   Of me.

Some may call this land empty,
Pass through and never see
The majesty of tumbling thunder
That is part of life’s journey

Oh dandelion, you lawn care pest
Your golden blooms will go no higher
Spring leaves have bowed and I earned my rest
Since you met my Weed & Feed applier

But revenge is sweet and your plan was sound
When you displaced my Kentucky bluegrasses.
In bare patches of lawn, new roots are found
Where Monsanto failed to kick the weeds ashes!

Make Their Day

If left up to me
I would make everyone a king
But only for a day

Just a taste of supremacy
To let them enjoy their day

See Me

Do you really see me,
Standing here before you?
Wrapped in mystery,
Corners you never knew.

I hid a big piece of me,
That I didn’t want to share.
A bit of hidden reality
Locked away in disrepair.

To me it seems so evident,
Behind the image I project.
But then there’s no precedent
To cause a disconnect!
