An Old Man

Poem By Uriah Hamilton

An old man is drinking
In the cool night
Beneath intricately scattered stars.

He thinks about his wife
Still more beautiful
Than autumn leaves.

This is a lovelier moment
Than seeing for the first time
A Degas painting of ballet dancers.

Her boyfriend had left her behind

Of a poet who died in the gutter;
That dying voice
Then seeped into his soul

Beauty Of Life

I don’t desire to wear a sad face too long
When I know I live in a world of flowers and birds
And that the evening will usher in a sky of scattered stars,
When I know hopeful prayers and songs

Healing Endurance

Misfortunes can be intense
In the hour of sadness,
But even earthquake ravages
Get rebuilt until a skyline
