CONSIDER

CONSIDER

~Latin considerare to observe, think about, from com- + sider-, sidus heavenly body

 

Consider the birds,

how they find their way

in the sutumn night.

 

Consider the lilies:

A star surrendered

its light.

 

Consider the heavens.

We are not

the stuff of dreams.

ANIMAL OR PLANT

Janice’s #3

Goldfinches edge the lawn.

Yellow blobs of daffodils

whine among bare branches.

April is over, and then some.

Now, again,

I must begin

to write normal poems.
