I’ve Little to Fear – National Poetry Month – Day II

Today is day two of National Poetry Month. I was unable to post yesterday, busy with Easter and family. Therefore, I’ll begin officially celebrating poetry today.

Not the dragon,
crouching like a cat
in the shadows
beneath the needled boughs,
ready to pounce,
its fleshy wings
unfurled as sails.
Nor do I tremble
as goblin drums
thunder from the hills,
as their raspy songs
chafe the night
as a sidewalk’s
gritty acrimony
scrapes a child’s knee.
but the poet
who lodges
his wit
between my ribs,
beneath my heart,
buried as a pirate’s plunder,
thought and gold,
he’s the daffy sage
who can set my soul to burn,
my voice to sing,
my contemplations
to shiver and quake.
