Poems by Brother Ollie: the Tired Monk
OOOOOH, the Tired Monk is feeling feisty and missing the ring! I so so love this! Must be spring!
Oh, Tired Monk, I have been in that corner! I loved the images that arrived. There is always a battle around every corner. Tired Monk knows this~
((( )))my daughter just competed at an area track competition. i watched all of the kids, the lengthening kids, the kids nervous/proud/hopeful/indifferent and i cried when they ran fullout. trying. trying. here they all were trying, lengthening their spirits and hoping and working and trying. it is a beautiful thing to see the spirit married to the body like this. i see you shrug and my heart is full of love, i see you understanding, and here i go again - crying.xoerin

Still loving it, Ollie. A rich read.
There's a time to put up a fight and a time to hang up the gloves.Great piece.
This is excellent ... and pleasurable to read. You have conjured up many quick, come to mind scenes here. I felt as though I was "Ringside."
The tired monk must indeed be tired.
Good one, Ollie.Pamela
I didn't see that coming - nice! Shatter those expectations!
I bet that other guy doesn't know about your hay maker!
The monk had me fooled on this one...clever twist at the end. By the way...your words painted a very vivid picture of the setting. Vb
Excellemt Monk. I'm there too - soaking in the atmosphere.Anna :o]
The atmosphere is quality here - the monk is a quality idea
So much wonderful imagery! Keep fighting the good fight. :)
I think this is my favorite of all your poems."crowd heaves, jumps cheersthen sinks deepin beer can jeers"Love that line! It's so expressive.
I've been surfing online more than 3 hours as of late, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's beautiful worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the net will probably be much more useful than ever before.My site - 2003 honda s2000 for sale
