Poems by Brother Ollie: the Tired Monk
Old Ollie,Wrapped up in spite of the snow. An inner feelgood warmth enhanced by the melodious tones, of Johnny Cash. A master of words too..and for the right moment....Warmest Wishes, Eileen
I really like the image of the temple dog.Nice one!
Love the "bit of bliss" - the tired monk's eyes are always open to the beauty around him. That's what I love about reading these poems - I get to share the lovely scenes!
Lovely image- new snow clings to old spider webs.
Love this, great images, especially the new snow clings to old spider webs. Nicely done!
Four great images in five short lines - some going!
Love Cash. Love this poem. Check out You Tube: Dylan and Cash, Girl From the North Country. Doesn't Get better. Many thanks for your kind comments.http://youtu.be/5PEVK66jsEM
Oh, Johnny Cash... didn't "get" him when I was young and snobbily steeped in jazz. After I heard the track he wrote for "Dead Men Walking" soundtrack, I finally understood the depth of his feeling. Then I went back to the Folsom days, and my appreciation blossomed to real love for his authenticity of spirit. Great poem, Ollie!
