Thursday Poets Rally Week 90, Nutrition, Expansion of Poetics, and”Tang” poem

the season is fair

musical notes fills New York time square

english poetry has been well spread

poets have increased confidence, I dare

while we wonder about and write a lot

we feel the urge to give our free flow a hault

which means some pondering, some researches

which is why I choose to sit, read, and maybe travel

“Tang” poets come near in spirit

we hear a child cry the fame of Sikong Shu (司空曙, 720–790)

we hear an adult reciting a poem by Du Xunhe (杜荀鹤)

i giggle a little

assuming some true and ancient poems in Chicago Sun Times
