Ode To Being Five (Children)

Poem By C.J. Heck

I made a paper Valentine
all red and edged with lace.
And on my paper Valentine,
I drew a pretty face.

I painted on two big blue eyes
and then a great big grin
and knew it wouldn't be complete
without a dimpled chin.

I love you, paper valentine,
and just between us two,
I hope someday when I grow up
I'll look as sweet as you.

Anatomy Of A Poet

Go in through the eyes of a poet
deep into her alphabet mind.
Ideas like flotsam and jetsam
dodge poetry fragments and lines.

Give me a poet for a lover
whose words stroke me like velvet hands.
Word-tender caresses more reaching
than the caress of a mere mortal man.

A Box For Good Will

As a friend, I had come to help

so it never occurred to me

Homeless man I watched you
line a deserted doorway,
your Maytag boxes cardboard monuments

Night-night moon
