Poetry There are a number of poets among the Ovi team, so we have gathered the together here.
Those days we could use interrogatives like
Did I tell you about the heatwave in July?
| ||I Don't Suppose|
I don't suppose it's popular to say
That soon this planet won't
Have any place to stay where we
Can avoid the heat or not drown
Or have a glass of water to drink.
| ||The Wild Boy of Aveyron|
Before we learned to solve each other's traps,
you reminded me of that poor wolf child,
urged on by hunger, digging for roots and bulbs in the fields,
| ||The Surfer|
It's cold and the wind
Is howling along the coast,
The smell of the ocean
Hangs in the air
| ||Forgiven sins|
I reveal to you a great secret;
When I took you to the garden,
It wasn't my intention to harvest the wet as I promised you,
| ||The Seeds Of Death|
The seeds of death are intimate to the birth of life
To strike away the false and clumsy, shear
To oblivion the inexact.
| ||Like Zen|
You are morning
when the artist comes
young oriental with your
poems like Zen.
I believe this. I sing yes to the flower before
the earth unclenches what is in her fist- a
crib to lie down in / a book of women
| ||Sorrows |
I became an eagle,
And I carried bundles
Of sorrows on my wings,
And I soared into the sky
I honor you
To family and friends
