Purchased Bollinger Of Greg Uhan's Words


yes here it is
exquisite wonderful
unique masterful...

I lived to see it
a true potential heir
to Walt Whitman

for all of us
who were looking
for an heir

to Walt Whitman
to deadline express
what we now feel...

about America in 2014 post?
years ago I believed you would
stretching mind write like this...

but I was not sure I would
get to read such pieces of poetry
poetic maturity in Gregory

Uhan comes early
because the need for writ
the need for such definitive...

expression is late
we have waited
too long timed out...

now we can toast
on bollinger purchased
to Greg Uhan's words; ...

007 will not
shot us lovers
of peace

the poor
the broken
hearted down;

rather we shall step build
rainbow bridge colourful
beautiful autumn bonfires

of our words
sing our love
to a chill;

cold hungry
world neglected
turn bombs

grenades weapons
of war into bread
fish feasts with wine

then invite
all suffering people
from all nations;

regardless of age
race religion gender
encoded sexuality

occupation
to sit sip sup
at our table

our celebration
a feat to superior
hearts love empathy

of supposedly
common humanity
which gives

all from their livelihood
not a few token coins
from profit as disguised

tax rebate
greed calculation
which insults

the souls
of beloved our
suffering humanity...

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
