Bare Trees by Mr. Patrick J. Leach

This is a book of poetry I know you will enjoy. Please indulge yourself. It is my third published book of poems.

Bare Trees

The beauty of bare trees right before the sun comes back
Love just before it comsummates in a full-blown relationships
A man right before he passes on what he knows to the next generation
Poems written by an unknown author who questions his worth right before the public recognizes what he's written
Ah, the value of everything right before the masses catch on and drive the price up; a Van Gogh worth millions when he could sell nothing all the time he painted and lived
Bare trees naked silently awaiting spring and bursting to green wondrous life

A Modulating Pulse

Changes at random intervals
Impossible for the ordinary mind to predict
Marveling at the symmetry of what happens
In a life, asking forgiveness, sympathy or
A merciful conclusion, not often aware it is
Modulating on top of destiny and heredity,
Social inequality where the spokes of a huge
Complex turning wheel meet in the center,
Unaware in there of the origin or destination,
Random intervals disguised as something
Else, hands worn out trying to hold on to
Constantly changing patterns desperately
Seeking permanence in a world of flux and
Change with no rational way out


Twixt you and I
There is a space
That never goes away
Even with our skin
Touching skin
Rubbing, kissing,
making love
There is a space
A separate logic
A different being

The World

There is nothing in the world
Worthy of betraying my relationship with God -
And yet
I am tempted each and every day
