Prize Poem

I can announce my prize winning poem now because it’s been posted at

It won third place in the Science Fiction Poetry Association’s Dwarf Poem category.  Dwarf poems are fewer than ten lines.

You have to scroll to the very end to see it or you can read it here.

A Butterfly in Costa Rica

He is reading Wing Systems Theory
when a fly lands on the page.
Paper turns to liquid,
flows over his palms
and evaporates
in the space above his knees.

That was my favorite among the poems I submitted.  Here’s another one I submitted that I like a lot.

The Lawn Care Man Comes Today

Frog-filled lawn vibrates.

Colors shift.

Rainbows strike

like lightening bolts.

Frog-filled lawn vibrates.
