The Incredible Edible Egg

Poem By Juan Olivarez

Boil the egg, then break the shell,
Now you're eating very well.
A little salt and pepper too,
Just a little bit will do.

Or scramble them up, with a little cheese,
Really fluffy, made to please.
Sunny side up, or easy over man,
Whatever the way, I'm eggs biggest fan.

Comments about The Incredible Edible Egg

This is great! It showcases what I love about Juan's writing: he can take an ordinary item, and make a wonderful poem of it! Very good.
Refreshingly light and witty - fun to read and read again!
and i'm the second biggest fan!

Gossamer Wings

I had a dream, that I could fly,
On gossamer wings, in the clear blue skies.
Floating above the Earth below,
Going where the air currents chose to go.

Return To Padre

It was a million years ago,
We walked on the beach at Padre.
Scattering the sand crabs as we went,
And dodging the blue jellyfish,

Your Voice

I hear your voice,
Of the day or night.


Happiness is being home again,
Happiness is walking in the rain.
Happiness is waking with no pain.

What Are We?

After all is said and done,
What are we?
Are we gold or silver,
Or a sparkling diamond in the rough?

Death Passes By

A vast endless sea of sand beyond
The blue grey hills, bathed in the sun
Creosote bushes dot the line
Of a bleak horizon, where heat waves shine
