Welcome Every Word


Face the other way and write, write these words down fast:
Seizes, eases, water, gathers; then, write current last.
 
Other words than these might do, or possibly, might not.
Thus be ready always, friend, to change your poem’s plot.
 
In pursuit of poetry, you take what fate doles out.
Welcome every word’s arrival with a joyful shout!

she welcomes the evening waves
as they roll to shore

At the wooden house,
a weird white mannequin waits
to welcome each guest.

beyond lighthouses
where wooded wetland havens
welcome the weary

finding peace beside the still waters
