Getting the brain working,
giving it a kick start,
doing a poetry course,
getting back my smart!

Recharge with Emily Dickinson –
Possiblities – and truth – abound-
A House with no Roof – This –
I am finding quite profound.

I have just started the Coursera Modern and Contemporary Poetry (modpo) free course. Week One – Dickinson and Whitman!



It’s raining, oh heck,
it’s supposed to be the dry season.
Water plops onto my deck,
La Nina or El Nino, which on is the reason?

Working hard on the sea,
this weather makes me flop.
I crash after I eat tea,
onto the couch I Plop!
