let late november

barely warm coals die

in thick ash, let them

 

sun warms my death pose

on the couch, grinning

 

lush green geranium

settles into light, low

 

lifts one bloom

to a large smeared window

    Of course, this brings Kenyon’s, Let Evening Come, to mind.

    “sun warms my death pose/on the couch, grinning” Another Bönpo-em?

    Thanks for passing on the Kenyon. I read several more of her poems at poets.org, and am grateful for her clear eye this morning, and for you.

    And, yes, you are right, this belongs in the Bönpo-em family! I’ll add the tag…

    much love to you, E
