Phil Huffy: “Promptitude”


Oh yes, a window,
there always seems to be
nearby, a window,
so, onward, lucidly.

Perhaps that window
looks from the second floor
and such a window
reveals a little more.

But you, dear poet,
have not the only one
and now, poor poet,
your job has just begun.

To write, a poet
requires poetic eyes.
Alas, good poet,
that’s where the challenge lies.

Phil Huffy writes early and often at his kitchen table, casting a wide net as to form and substance. His work has appeared in dozens of journals and anthologies, including Schuylkill Valley Review, Eunoia, PangolinOrchards Poetry, The Lyric, and several haiku publications
