two for National Poetry Day

twitter verse 031013

 

veiled by the mist

rain sodden fronds bow down

as if in obeisance

to the saturated ground

 

 

 

Austere Grey Day

 

although the dismal gloom

pays homage to austerity –

 

sunshine can soon dissolve

the grey skies misery –

 

austerity

will cast dark shadows

 

as long as

dogmatists prevail
