To A Snowflake: (Children)

Poem By C.J. Heck

Hello little snowflake!
Where are all your friends?
Should I expect a lot of them
before the morning ends?

I love it when you come to me
and you all fall down together,
and I get dressed to visit you,
toasty warm in cold, cold weather.

It’s fun the way you all pile up
outside in my back yard,
and I can roll you in a ball
to make a snowman, it’s not hard.

Or maybe, I will build a fort.
All my friends will come and play,
and if you plan to stay awhile,
I'll come outside every day.

Sometimes I make snow angels,
and their legs and arms look puffy,
but I can only do that
if you come down light and fluffy.

Could I ask you guys a favor?
White is fine, but nothing’s duller...
Could you all do one thing, just for me?
Come down in LOTS of colors?

What a great idea CJ. A multi-coloured snow blanket. I'd have to order a tartan blizzard. Danny

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.

A Poet For A Lover (Adult)

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
yet one more time
and I watched as she set
the cardboard box on the floor.

Love At First Sight

I've never believed
in love at first sight.
I've never had it happen,
so it never occurred to me

Homeless Man

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

Night-Night (Children)

Night-night moon
Night-night stars
Night-night noisy
