Poems by Brother Ollie: the Tired Monk
Ollie, thanks for the invite to Humbucker. This is good. Has the fusion of West and East with the discipline of haiku. I will read more.
So glad this is not a true story! I love your haiku, always. "Awake" - powerful last line, I can see the monk.
Something told me to come and put out that fire! Keep the fire in the belly where it belongs. Loved your write!
This makes me happy I dont smoke too often. Poor man lol but funny!! Is it wrong I see a comical event when reading this?
Never catch a chill in a robe like that.
Nice one Ollie and I am happy it isn't true.Pamela
That is one way to wake up.....love this Ollie!:-)
What an alarm call! Very nice.
Oh my goodness! This one would definitely sound the alarms! Nice job!
Woke me up; Great imagery! I like how you worked it~
What a dreadful image! And you described the situation so well.
There are many way to 'wake up'. ;-)Nice one.
This is a different approach to the theme... you capture the moment so well.
Good poem, Ollie. Realistic content. Like others have said, glad it is fictional.
Old Ollie,The near tragedy and all too real.I'm glad you lived to write another day!!!Best wishes, Eileen
