Grape Gathering

Cadence Collective: Long Beach Poets

And Daniel McGinn

Sink into soft cushions
on this balmy day
secure in the certainty of our love
as I feed you grapes and chocolate
washed down with wine.
This is a comfort poem.

From a small firm seed,
flower clusters transform
into the sweetness on my tongue.
This grape, this miracle, reminds me of
God, Love, and Spirit, as well as
the richness and depth of
humanity’s creativity.
This is an awe poem.

We lay in the vineyard
staring up at the stars.
They sparkle with no sound.
We say nothing.
This is a silent poem.

We cling to those we love
when things go wrong.
The highway comes to a halt when
the Grapevine is snowed in,
wrath is futile like the Steinbeck novel,
and grapes out of reach are always sour.
This is a sad poem.

In
security,
spirit, and
quiet…

The Words In Between

One type of found poetry uses the Google search engine to create small poems.  These poems are a bit organic, they grow and change as the world types in their searches.  It’s just another way to have fun with language.  There is even a website for this poetry called Google Poetics.  Sometimes poetry happens when nothing else can do the job.  It is the words in between words, words unspoken, words that can not be translated.  Poetry that can not be defined.

Dog-Ear Poetry #2

At The Found Poetry Review, a contest is going on until October 31, 2013.  The challenge? To find poetry in the corner of a page.  It’s called dog-ear poetry.  Here are some dog-ear poems I found in Earth Abides by George R. Stewart:

I call this one, “When White Became Dirty.” I think that it’s describing the book paper!

And another found poem on the theme of, yes you guessed it, ‘oldness.’  I think that George R. Stewart may have been going through a mid-life crisis when he wrote this book!  I just call this poem, “The Old.”

Justice In Art
