2 poems by Anne Mikusinski [Poetry]

Philosophy Lesson

Bumblebees are optimists.

Trusting in gossamer

Wings

To carry them through

Life

They are fearless in their

Travels

They hover,  absorbing

Everything that interests them

I take my cue from them

And trust my flimsy words

Will hold me

Up.

Ambient

Outside

The rain whispers

Playing counterpart to the sounds

Inside

Soft tapping of keys

Give birth to ideas

That baby step their way

Across blank pages.

From another room

Brushed drumbeats and low strings

Spread light upon a scene of

Quiet work

And little sleep.
