traveler’s journey
to witness a scene so chaste
stars blush at the sight

shepherds pause from watching flock
glory to the new born king

Echoes

12/18/2018

                          -©2018 cj holm

snowy fields
echoed in the sky
blue shadows

++++++++++++++++

steel grain bin
leaning against tree
vacant now

clock always ticking
reaper gone away

+++++++++++++++++

snow covered tree stump
all the branches hauled away
squirrel scurries on

+++++++++++++++++

my brother’s birthday
he is younger by a year
and missing old farm

Final Question

 

Cold cup on his lips
Socrate accepted fate
-Public’s thirsty goal

For anything that men can tell
death may be the greatest good

Not A Win, Not A Loss

Not A Win, Not A Loss

Win or lose – tied score
flip of coin decides who’s won
heads or tails is spun

nothing settled nothing gained
half a winner is proclaimed
