be like Brahma

From Verse of Silence (Spring 2019):

be like Brahma

We spent the afternoon listening to cracking trees
and rescuing voles pushed from their holes
by the surging river

I remember saying
let’s take the ferry if it’s running
the tide has never been higher
and my companion said
we’re wearing ponchos and boots
up to our knees
the time has never been better

These were suburban adventures.

I would watch rain fall
and wonder how the water
might go
would school be cancelled
in a divine blessing
while my father thought over
insurance like a good accountant
the way any householder considering
the future for his children would

But I
could be
like Brahma
then
saying non-being is my being
ready to drown in cold water.

Thank you, Writers Resist

I am honoured that Writers Resist has two of my poems on their site today.

When I work with students in creative writing I like to tell them that poetry, plays, and fiction can be about anything they like. It is a canvas for their imagination and they can use it to delve into areas of the silly and absurd as life often is both. . . among other things.

Anyway, I like to try and practice what I preach, that is, I like to try and put my own work (and myself) out there. This is why I am using my website to share my publications.
