I Am

I Am

frayed lightning, more sizzle than bite
mystery unresolved, maybe unsolvable
Cock without doodle, plow hungry field
deep as rainwater,Grand Canyon shallow
never-ending laughter, grief unrelieved
a whisper of roses, an ovation of jackhammers.
I am castle, moat and keep,
I am generic, I am unique.

About elrondsilvermaul

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.
