Greta

In EU, parents nightmare,

She quit eating, quit talking,

Just hypocrites or Parents sitting

Out, under control not in very

Bad place, energy when father vegan,

Mother never flying, daughters,

Greta eating vegan pie, famous,

Dancing like frown, one hundred

People hugging, yet, fake news

People don’t understand, we wear

Sweaters, make our home cooler

In winter, daughter mostly vegatarian,

We, age 68, 64, never again

Sliding into greener world, we drive

Cars small, tip-top Japanese, 35 m/p/g

One car 12-years-old, rebuilt floor

Climate community activity, Mothers

Against Climate Change keep birds

Before deadline, USA out sourced,

UN major award, sustainable ag

In slums renewable, any agreement

Shutout, no understanding, cinical

Children, I do not buy new things,

My wife and I in used clothing,

Don’t doubt significance, electrify

Autos, despair to rage, in each town,

How as others move to our

Sweet spot as THIS area blooms against

Humanity, remember Nine Lessons and

Carols, shall we sing of birth or death?

Mothers have you power–remember power

Comes in buying, how will you exercise Power?

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, Xlibris.com 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!
