ayaz daryl nielsen: Two Poems

Two Poems

this day passes
somewhere nearby
someone practicing on
an out-of-tune piano
trying to get it right
accompanied by a
novice tuba player and
other such small things
cluttering a warm
Spring afternoon


nothing but the wind
and a cricket on the porch…
consumed by them… this
ordinary loneliness
turning into
silken tears


ayaz daryl nielsen, veteran, hospice nurse, ex-roughneck (as on oil rigs) lives in Longmont, Colorado, USA. Editor of bear creek haiku (26+ years/140+ issues) with poetry published worldwide (and deeply appreciated), he also is online at: bear creek haiku–poetry, poems and info
