Wheat Ears – Selected Poems

Posted: 02/02/2023 by vequinox in Literature


Candlestick almost burnt

drips wax over its base

like stalactites turn moments

to eternities you shape

a well formed stanza

a light thanks to

burnt matches in the drawer

with the white napkins

unfolded occasions

one for you one for her

then as if it were a

napkin from inspired

dovetailed drawer rhyme

you fold neatly and place

where ideal

iamb compels

in the middle of the poem
