Poems by jjhogan



Strandings

Rivulets of sand
course down
aoelian sculpted striations
of scarified dunes held
captive or ensconsed?
by a sinuous strand.

Fragmented memories of crystalline quartz
scattered about the strand
by infinite saline
caresseses.

Alluvial gatherings of memory
once whole
now angular and facetted.

Perspectives altered.
Contexts changed.

Biographical sketch: A married guy w/ two kids w/ unrequited poetry ambitons, kinda like C.B.'s little
red haired girl.

jjhogan recommends:

masefield and frost by masefield and frost

Reason: frost; one could do worse than be a swinger of birches, or be where the wind is like a whetted knife. Not this is not poetry that is obscure in its simile and metaphor but is real and experienced.

Recommendations for writers:

meter is important but it should not be obviouse like in Shelly's or Byron's poetry.
