In The Wheatfield

Poem By Herbert Nehrlich

The golden glow
of just ripe wheat
was background,
music with a beat
from garlands gleaned
and sun for warmth
they lay there, silent
tangled arms, and hands
small weevils, other bugs
and spiders, crawled
slowly, leisurely on nude
and scarcely breathing,
wildly spent, soft limbs.

Though the idyll came to
a rather tragic, early end
when tractor sounds
approached at speed
and mammoth tyres
flattened him, the one
who, for a spider, was
the most enamoured
with the show he'd watched
from the beginning.

Such a rough game.
Such skills required.
And popular.

A limerick can be rather funny
when the syllables are on the money.
But when none of it fits

She stood, head bowed, long neck, wings drooping,
and motionless until she saw my face.
Damn, it was obvious, he had been truly slaughtered,

I was not looking when you found me
you stopped just long enough to smile.
I felt your presence all around me
and hoped that you would stay awhile.

A Little Bit Of Darkness

It had gone dark in my world.
An invisible sadness, one of substance
drifted in, from a horizon so far
and so unknown to me,
