embers




it would be nice


not to be bent


like this tree


carrying the curve of the hill




the wind does it


or someone in childhood


who plants fear in our roots




it would be nice


to disappear


into a woman's heart




dancing can do it


until we call for more wine


to fuel our crowded feet




no sense wanting


what wasn't made or graced


it's just i can't help noticing


this old world growing older

Poems are immortal. So it is wonderful to see and hear these words read by the poet. (Cherrie, did you say that Ed is not writing new work....?) Bless all poets for what they share, and the insight they give us.

I miss seeing new works from Ed. But man it sure is great to swing by and visit his work.

Ed, this is gorgeous gorgeous. Your succinct phrasing gets straight to the heart of the thing like an arrow. As always you speak with a worldly knowledge, and I can't help but listen

As i listen to the birds singing in this moment, your words take me back to yesterday and walk with me into my fearful future... Within the blend of your words, I feel the urge to dance.

It would be nice . There may be no sense to the wanting yet desire fuels us does it not? And sometimes if we are lucky the outcome may be some beautiful poetry like this. Nice to see you!

Nice to see a face to the work. So that's what a poet looks like! Lol jk.

hearing a poets voice is like hearing the alumnus speak from a soul whos school is steeped with amulet's. I use to ride by the UofM campus and imagine my hands running thru the ivy of the towers,
tracing the inscription that were never meant to be read by me. Too bad and too late, I would shout to myself, even today. Words, if you can display them, if you can imagine their conditions, are meant for everybody..I mean, not their appeal but their essence /
thank you my friend for the many inspirations...dana
