Dailies 2/14/18!!!!!


Poetry Diary: Happy Valentine’s Day! I have no idea why Poets.org, Poetry Daily, and Verse Daily didn’t post love poems today, (or Ash Wednesday poems!) but here’s a silly one anyway:

Mary Jo Salter – Video Blues

My husband has a crush on Myrna Loy,
and likes to rent her movies, for a treat.
It makes some evenings harder to enjoy.
Robert Hedin – Owls 
Owls glide off the thin
Wrists of the night,
David Yezzi  – The Rock Balancer

Dead still, as if breathing with the rock,
he holds a boulder in his grit-flecked hands.
He tilts it to its base of smaller stones,
rotating it minutely back and forth,-Read rest of poem 


Seamus Heaney – Scaffolding

Masons, when they start upon a building,
Are careful to test out the scaffolding;

Make sure that planks won’t slip at busy points,
Secure all ladders, tighten bolted joints.
