There is Another Mention

Belief or non-belief,

Green is gone to brown logs

Down on Turtle creek,

So what? I sit before light

Writing poems about my life,

Some brave soul, my dear wife

Dear ever, I don’t care if she

Is Jealous, overlooks, my sarcasm

Cynical mind, my soul is brave,

Yet together we must leave,

We won’t reside in asembly,

Heaven not an answer for our

Pablo and Francesca, or is

Italian couple of brotyher,

Sister so old, no one reads?

We are braver than the two

Who swept around Hell’s

First ring, and Dante began

His descent never knowing

Of marriage, or love, or

Any mention of real people

Those who worshiped trees,

Flowers, rainbows, this

Was another Christian year,

No Hell, no damnation, not

Real stories to fear vengeful God.

I was a University and community college instructor. I am an ordinary man writing for artistic reasons, and simple taste-- blogs are an answer to high priced self-publishing. Walt Whitman had to print his 1000 paper books himself because in 1855 poetry did not sell. It does not sell now unless you have a Pulitzer Prize, and even then, the poet usually makes a living in other ways than poetry. In all ages there have been writers writing out of their own reasons. I am an older man with fewer computer skills than my daughter. Blogs let me reach an audience missed by books, and I stand a better chance to reach a wider audience. My two self-published books, Winter from Spring, and Meditations on Gratitude, Charles E Taylor, MFA, and a third coming out sometime next year, through The Book Patch: For Patty Brown... satisfy needs to hold books, and, yet, still read as electronic books which are easier to produce than paper books. The blog allowed me to write a compendium of my writing. I can combine composition with production. Wordpress provides word processing with production. When the writer finishes writing they press publish and then a finished piece. I’m happy to present to you a slice of my personal writing. Do enjoy what you read!
