PRECIOUS METTLE | National Poetry Month

Precious Mettle

That silver piece,

polished sun,
gleaming and pretty.
A gray light.

Dandelion linen.
Blue roses
red, black and blue.

Pink white mountain
distant and glowing.
The moon never larger.

and barley hanging on.
remember this number.

St. John 
gone for the weekend.

Great blue herons,
wood ducks, egrets,
a brown heron atop the docks.
The hawk puffing its chest;
my admiration.

Warm afternoon sun
and the wind quick.
Long Beach
Giant kites
Another life

precious and noble.
Blue moon eyes.

A river town (near the mouth)
blue and gray.

- J.J.H.
