Morning Star

I gazed into the predawn sky, to see the morning star...
I smiled because it reminded me how small we really are...
Our minor tribulations turn to major tragedies...
The reasons are beyond our arrogant expertise...
So I wink at the morning star, and it twinkles back at me...
I go about my day whistling, as I stroll through the debris...

    Hullo, Darrell. Better to let go, glow with the flow of the Morning Star. Anyway, that's wot I thought of while reading your poem. Good introspection going on. I was just curious....don't take this wrong way. Do you actually find Kurtis Futch Jr's poetry brilliant? I am not one to talk, as I am an amateur. The pretentious prick in me figures that you are being sarcastic, but I am also wondering if you sincerely do find his poems brilliant.

    Darrel, maybe I am a bigger jerk than you are? I was sincerely curious, is all. I have wanted to approach Kurtis and suggest possibly writing a single poem in a different format....maybe branch out a little, for the sake of transformation, evolution, etc. But in the end, he really enjoys writing the way he does, and that is wot counts for him in the end.

    Thank you... BTW, I would be a total jerk if I was being sarcastic about someone's poetry... I wouldn't do something like that... I'm just trying to be encouraging or maybe a tiny bit sarcastic... You decide....
