Poetry Magnum Opus



Recommended Posts

For days nothing would be seen

when I was captain of a submarine.

I would yearn for clouds and rain

scouring my dreams. One day

we had a sudden loss of power

I experienced a pain-a cardiac arrest.

In retirement I am blessed with a

dog named Cain fascinated with fire

thunder and rain-he howls when my

dreams contain flames and plays games

with the pigeons that haunt our garden.

When I had a heart transplant I drifted

through the clouds in a submarine and confused

the beating of angels wings with those of pigeons.

Now as great energies advance I have taught Cain

to dance to bring rain and listen to the thunder sing
