Come Home


Becky claimed

she was a local poet

one weekday on Moscow Road

between Monte Rio and Duncan Mills

Her Red top-hat provided confirmation

her comments on mine carried the facts

we parted on the poison oak and grape

covered bridge above the current

signaling ever present change

pointing out we are loco


Poetry is code

rebellion sometimes calm

always inflamed responses

to truth hidden in silence

implied conversations

with alienation


or like interpretations of cats or freedom

simply new floor-plans for this cell

we call home.

Hi Dr. Con,


I hear you "Come Home".


I find something resemblant in your recent poems - a mix of concrete and abstract ideas. Like this one, the first stanza reads very nicely, concrete images and a feel of friendliness, kindness and warmth; the next two stanzas the writer puts in a lot of thoughts.


Enjoyed much.

Thanks Lake!


They are part of a series- that will take different forms- I hope you keep enjoying them!


Many Thanks!

Hmmm ... You liken it to a cell, but perhaps our chains are imaginary? I sure hope so. I liked your unexpected juxtaposition of cats and freedom. And I enjoyed the local references, as always.

Just like interpretations of cats the chains are self created and therefor imaginary as is freedom;-)


The next in the series "Above the Current" is below...


Thanks Tony!

Nice series, Juris. I like the title along with the poem. It's a little bit different from you, and I like the idea for writing in a series. Well done.
