For my entry to the Uncontest Contest of Anthony Biaanco, I am submitting one of the 23 poems I faved of this author since I met him at Soup in 2010. I remember when I first got to know Daver, he would tease me that he was 100 years old. He was always writing about getting old, and now I understand even more accutely the feelings in his poems.
Three poems of his, in addition to the ones I show here, are also very beautiful poems. "Brother - Billy" is the oldest poem of his I faved. It is so deep and mysterious, I am not sure I ever really "got" it and yet it just really tugged at me. It was probably my most favorite of all and appeared in his list in 2008. "September Song" from 9/9/9 is a real treat for me as it's my birthday month and Daver's triple tanka about september are gorgeous. "85th Birthday -Journal 1X " is from 7/20/14. If anyone wants to read these poems, you only have to type in his name and go to the page for these years when he wrote the poems.
When Daver wrote "The Absent Years" he was still five years away from his death, which occurred in the summer of 2017. I cannot choose really my favorite among the 23 I faved of his, for I love them all. Here is one little poem he wrote just for me, and this one the sponsor of the uncontest will not see. I wish I could show even more of what Daver wrote. please visit his poetry!
Lover of the sonnet she
And fond also of Etheree
Has her certain way with words
That one may catch semantically
I ken she is a kindred soul
Our lineal eddies mingle flow
And seek out those who listen close
That we all might dream-catching go
