Poems by Brother Ollie: the Tired Monk
Good one, Ollie......
That's for sure!
true that...an artist, a craftsman knows you must care for your tools.
My husband is meticulous with his tools especially his knives, he makes furniture and carves as his side hobbies. This is a wonderful poem!I amhttp://mindlovemisery.wordpress.com/

I have too many tools that need fixing. Sometimes that's the problem with life ;)
I like the conservation of words and the images you use which all fit the poem's theme of efficiency and grit.
the last two lines are absolute gems.its a wonder how the most commonplace lines acquire such resonance in your poems.
True...gotta tend to that rust!
If only we could fix ourselves as easily...
Lovely stuff - such is the serenity of the tired monk.Agree with Jinksy's comment...t'would be nice if we could...Anna :o]
