Poetry There are a number of poets among the Ovi team, so we have gathered the together here.
| ||Whispers from the Grave|
What happened to 20 acres of farmland tilted toward sun angles,
those sharp stone edges cool fall comes
frost fields covered taking ownership of rented, abused, abandoned land−
10 years Phil has been gone, DeKalb, Illinois farmer.
Out to sea

| ||Are You Still Daddy's Little Girl?|
Are you still Daddy's Little Girl ?
He asked in his Smiley Voice

| ||DEMISE of the SOCIAL CONTRACT|
There is anxiety
there is anguish

| ||Untitled poem (for Mikale)|

| ||Joy's Riddle|
Take me to the feast of a thousand shooting stars

Sing about fine lilies, funny golds and funky diamonds
| ||Crying For A Vision|
Betweem Earth & Sky
I am crying.
| ||For every woman, hard at work at being a 'Marilyn Monroe'|

| ||That Brilliant Yellow|

Yet repugnant in its delight

It knows nothing about
Yet so full of arrogance
Indeed! Arrogance in ignorance
Quirk enrages, the world is mad!
