Poems written in late December 2012
Comments welcome. [poem notes in brackets like this]


1. [ From Blue Mountain Poems – a mystical imaginary mountain in the distance]

near the top
of blue mountain
the air is thin
but the stars are thick!

2. [From Writings in Science – a sci-fi novel in progress]

a leaf in a forest.

3. [a Wake UP Poem]

on the Earth
on every side!

4. [Science in a poem that speeds up]

at apogee
the Moon slows down
to let us take a look.

at perigee
it speeds up

5. [Moon Poems /this with two meanings]

i know there’s a new moon
in the air
though for now
it’s invisible

6. [ Vision Poem]

On one side an Angel,
on the other a ghost.
Between them 2 cups
of fragrant tea
with swirls of steam
rising and spiraling
and ever so slowly
fading away…

7. [from Moon Tea, a collection of kids poems]

Look there’s a ladder
to the Moon.
Come and help me
count the rungs.

8. [Sort of a Saturn poem – hey astrologers?]

no need to feel sorry
for the crippled lamb.
long ago he adjusted
to the fate he had.

and when in a pool
you see your face,
look more carefully
for YOUR crippled leg.


tapping your toes or shaking in your boots?

There are two types of art: realism, and exaggeration.

Science writers, stop trying to impress and start trying to communicate!

I try to paint magic!
