    I)

    The halfling I love walks in my puzzling bed.

    I don’t believe what she sees.

    The smallest woods are what’s left of myself.

    Here, I scavenge limbs that will make a gift.

    Moonlike, the grove ciphers into itself.

    I sit on a stump. I weep.

    Trains whistle. Bead-eyed girls blink.

    What did my father teach me?



    II)

    The man I love is not a willow.

    If I have a prison, I will strip its branches

    And make a basket.

    Hello, spider, weaver, baby Norn.

    They sing, the fey wisps.

    Each of my tears becomes a pearly snail.

    What did my mother teach me?



    III)

    The acorns I’ve bled green for.

    The tree’s art I’ve saved.

    It’s a kind of zazen: my leafy stillness

    Strong enough to shelter the man and the halfling,

    The mated littles, the winged notions,

    The flour spilled, the steps, the thistled dogfart.

    Broad enough to bear rooms and beams.

    Wise to the root, and despite darkling eyes,

    Sighted to the edge of the world.

    Default I Love It

    I just love it, 12pm, great how I took off from your "leaves" and you continued with my "biography." Where to go now, forward and deeper. I so see what you're writing, thru the forest, the trees, And Adam West's Batman mask...

    amazed,

    tx.



    Enough cocoons already.

    Milk. Honey. Silk. Bed. All past.

    The long green night burnt through its wicked fuse.

    I’m sick of scheming spinner’s needs,

    Those thirsty bloodskeined webs

    That swaddle, coddle, curdle the childbride

    In her imagined losses.

    Sick of dross with no chance of alchemy.

    I’d rather luscious with the ghost in my Florence

    Whose thighs remember, lips like gooseberries

    In a grove. Her fluttering grazes my eyelids.

    Her tide of moons, calves, hollows, swells —

    All sweetness in motion, she’s a pendulum

    Scented with plums. Lambent shoals of fireflies

    Settle in my grasses. My puzzling’s done.

    This dreamer’s chrysalis rent in shards.

    So I walk east. And my ghost walks west.

    Even as one new sun plunges the ginkgo’s shade

    Into its roots, through the waltzing globe

    And out splayed on the southern cross

    Where it blooms, wider than webs,

    Woven starfingers.

    By noon I’ll be myself again.

    Oh, wicked one
    Who teases me so
    Your prose, artistic beauty
    Call me to go
    You dare me to try
    You teach me to think
    This spark is exciting
    Of it I must, must drink
    Partner who challenges
    Foe who scorns
    Talent and genius
    Is no doubt your thorn
    You are a puzzle to me

    The people who’ve bonded on Tweleve just this year
    Are now friends and competitors, far and near
    Check out the list and know you that I’ll miss
    Your posts and your thoughts that’ve been heavenly bliss

    Destructo is Chris; SUElough worked for you
    Cat957 is Cathy; Renart is Chris, too!
    Dehlen is Donna; Perchprism is Jeff
    There’s Iwantthehummingbird – Noah’s my guess
    RDSchackleford is the Rusty we know,
    Debz’s the one who honors her precious Raeann Nicole
    Cabunk is Carey, and treeman Bass021 is Steve
    You’d never know it but Frstprzfa is Denise!
    Becky’s Hunting4Treasure; I’m almost hitting a wall
    But I do know that 12PM’s name is really Paul
    Nashangel is Melody; ChptleLvr is Doug
    Oh how I’d love to see photos of everyone’s mug!

    But there are more of you that I’d like to know for therein lies our real treasure
    Befriending people across this great country of ours can be a person’s true measure
    AprilxMichelle sounds easy enough and so does Hollyhill
    But Adelos12? _Blank? And Weepixel? Come on, let your real names spill
    There’s Beetleboy, Turkeymonkey, and Lecia1212 –
    Hunnytree, Dubulup, and Patsicakes, it’s true
    CThree, Skoldpadda, it’s time to come out
    Thanks for letting us know what you knew
    We all know Doc from Louisiana, and Deboriole seems terribly nice
    I doubt anyone will forget you, Cegodsey – that photo with your creepy eyes!

    Aside:
    I must admit to being a little curious to hear what Lyricalash sounds like
    Anyone who could contrive that subpoem from scratch should truly step up to the mike!

    You people are great! I wish I could say more
    That would convince our four mods to stay
    There’s another book with another doth coming
    But that’s all for another day
    So thanks to you all for the party and fun
    The PM’s and all the kind words
    I think I will stop now before I keep going
    Crying might be just a little absurd!

    a slight revision of a poem I wrote 15 years ago. I'm surprised I still remember it!


    A tiny note
    stands all alone
    without his friends
    he has no tone
    a tiny beeb
    and then he's gone
    he waits for me
    to play a song
    I'll put him in
    a symphony
    where he will stay
    and always be
