STEELBRIGHT
A Tiny Poem by Alice B. Clagett
amongst her early works

Steelbright sunlight glistened
……………………………….. off the clock

Backlit 3 flowers in a brown
………………………………… glass vase.

Dear Ones,

Here is a set of early poemlets …

LIFE BY THE SLICE
Tiny Poems by Alice B. Clagett
amongst her early works

I drank the rain from stone bowls
in the mountains.

Silent alpine meadow leaps
deer fled hushed sandal taps.

.

The pale orb beckons
Twin moons descend the hill.

.

Chill dank air crouches
at the mountain’s northern base.
Dark flowrs bloom there

and on her southern slope
I eat the sun.

.

The angel’s hair flamed through the westward sky.

. . . . .

LA
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
amongst her early works

On the upper left flank
of plasticelled, steely-eyed LA
it sits.

On the green wool rug
of the median strip
buttercups bloom.

What would it be like to be
a bird of paradise
behind a chain-link fence?

LOVE’S SWEET EMBELLISHMENT
A Poemlet by Alice B. Clagett
April 2004

Day’s end, and the coral trees
stitch their gentle silhouette
upon the opalescent hem
of vast Lord Krishna’s gown.

FROG EGGS
A Poemlet by Alice B. Clagett
July 2016

Here on Earth
creeds propagate
like frog eggs
in a fish pond
at the first sign of Spring.
