Secret Conversations

A visual poetry collection, coming soon…

Derby Day   

            The bluebird spoke to me from the fencepost

                  He could not see

                          the hidden hole

                                  his house  turned to the barn

                                           by the winter wind

         I climbed down from the tractor

                 turned the bluebird’s house

                          toward the morning sun

         The bluebird thanked me

whistled and chirped

         I told my friends

                 as we watched the Derby

                          first I saw an oriole

                                  then a bluebird spoke to me

         Doc said,

we’ll have to watch him

I think he’s crazy
