Poet’s Corner (November 3, 2015)

Alexis Ogunmokun –

Ancient Tales

Tales written by

Writers who either

Saw the characters

Or were unaware

Of their existence

In an old era

Depicted in literature

For children and young adults

For over 2 centuries and beyond

No Excuse

No excuse

Just action

And a way

of atonement

Ever Changing Leaves

Leaves ever changing

In the fall

On the month

Children become monsters

Begging for candy to eat

Redeeming Light

There is always

A light

To shine towards

Darkness

Blue Stars

Blue stars in the night

Of autumn full of leaves

Turned to dust

Granting wishes with no price

Just growing blue roses in the night
