Positive Poles

How cleverly
autumn ravages
splendor to leave
the vessel half full
before birds
with specks of summer
in their eyes head south
in wintertime.

Inspired by a poem: Watching A White Falcon Set Loose by Li Po (Li Bei) on Leonard Durso.

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.

  1. Nice one, Anita. I just learned that Li Po and Tu Fu were contemporaries. Don’t know why I had it in my head they were of different dynasties.
