D'Etre Raisins

No sour grapes these,

rather the withered sweetness
of seasons lengthened
to aged fruition
chewed introspectively.

Double Haiku Limerick For Guelph Library 125

There was a writer,
Tom King, who wanted to rhyme
Library but di'n'...

He said, just nothing
rhymed with library; I thought...
brib'ry does, Tom King.

125 years in Westminster Woods

The room full of words
awakes the urge for phrases
woven to meet a need
for those assembled:
utterances bird-songed by
humans among bookrows;
Dewey-decimal spines breathing
with conversations, absorbing
decibels of burble that
rise and fall between bebop
and slide-show soundtrack;
while the clatter of cups &
wine glass clink
are captured articulate
by camera-shuttered staccatos
and digitally sequenced
annunciations of living voices celebrating
a century and a quarter of tales read from pages
born of a thousand imperatives,
like stories for children, or large print
editions for aged eyes to know by,
mysteries and factual accounts and imaginative
litanies reaffirmed, tender mercies found
among the perfect-bound volumes around us,
while time slips out of hours
and the gathering vanishes
into ways home
through the dark
of Westminster Woods.
