Poetry is an art,
If you haven't yet,
Get out there write & start...e

We all have this art,

Sometimes this art is all we have,

However hard is life,

Twice the amount of this we own in halve…


Zen & this art ARE both poetry,

In either we need no degree,

Of readers we have a guarantee,

This you can tell by reading my, of poetry, potpourri…


Humor an art of as well Zen,

An art done by both women & men,

Typed on computer or written by pen,

Scattered throughout from many on the Den…
