The poem(s) are below...



"If you need a thesaurus to find the right word, then it's the wrong word." -- a remembered, probably misquoted, old maxim.

A week of rain
has left my yard spongy
but quite lush -- and birds, now,
are again appearing.

A small, strange toad --
here rarely seen --
surprised me yesterday
at my threshold.

Inside, my three cats
persistently attacked a lone
long lizard hiding in
an artificial palm.

I mention minutiae,
breathe deeply in and out:
my unremarkable reality,
my routine life...

Too often, words -- and
problematic politics -- intrude.

What a delightful snapshot in time, Leo. I also applaud your unabashed use of your poetic license. You go ahead and put that “e” wherever you want! ~Mark
