poetry slam friday

Well my Web site was finished for my class assignment, but now comes the really hard part of transferring it to my current domain. Had a bit of an incident trying to get it over, and now I have to start all over making it again. Damn damn damn! In the meantime here's a couple of poems for Poetry Slam Friday ... and here's a link to how the Web site will look in case you wanna see it: WELCOME TO WINO RHINO.

new season

the grapes are growing
leaves nestle into vines, quickly
how they become one


(this was a poem I submitted recently for an essay contest about how my generation of college students are "one in a million" ... see if you can catch the connect and comment if you find out!)

the definition of one

Open up our hands, our arms
Never cease, never stop
Everything is moving forward now

I dive in, feel our strength as warmth
Never cease, never stop

A single beat above the roar

Many faces turn to us
I realize where we are going
Listen to our
Longing for more than mediocrity
I stop and look at you for hope
Opening up your hands, your arms
Never cease, never stop
