THREE POEMS by Danny Barbare



Thanksgiving Dinner

The
tree
is
becoming
leafless
or
lonely

feeling
rather
drab

when
it
creates
papershell
pecans

that
become
the
topping
on
the
pie.

...............................


The Magnolia

So radiant and sweet
I close my eyes
and wherever I am
I go here again and again.
I am home
where the magnolia tree blooms
in the South.
I reach up and cup my hands
like petals of the flower
toward the sun
and I am deeply rooted.

...............................


Ice Tea

So
sweet
is
the
glass

filled
to
the
rim

with
so
little
less
than
a
thank
you

of
ice
tea.
