Photo a Day and Back Porch Poems
Meanwhile, here are the next two of my Back Porch Poems:
January 5, 2012: They have names, but I know them only by number.
Friendly enough, they smile,
wish me a good day, or Merry Christmas.
Seems ironic to return the greeting
so I just say thanks, walk on
recite the training mantra:
Inmates are not your friends.
January 6, 2012: Clouds dance beneath the moon
their billowy skirts shimmer starlight
while the wind hums Claire de Lune.
Six poems, six photographs, 360 to go!
