Lost Poet found in Haiku

College at forty,

fuel for my family success

My revelation

Soft light falls on books,

blue electronic light, chokes,

my book, in darkness.

Winners are hated

Motion, poisons the hissing idle

I remain immune

Poet spilled heart

readers drink love’s tale of red

Poets drink readers.
