The Eternal Beauty of the Day Lily

Day Lily: On Father’s Day

Eternal Beauty for a Day Lily

Poetry/Prose by Merrill Leonard


She appears in the morning

walk through the Garden,

Her first blush is taken

by the zenith Light.

When the Sun completes

the Day’s journey

Nothing’s more to do.

Work finished as it first began.

Though, her beauty can follow

into a Dream at night

Seen by the first Witness,

Eyes of a Divine Creator.

Morning Beauty magnified

In the Sleep of a Dream

her most glorious colors

eternal in Darkness or Light.

No hope of salvation

Rescued from the Light.

Beauty only for the Day.

Withered by night.

To remember is to see again

Beauty born with the Light

She returns with the Sunrise

Only for a Season born to rise again.

Teacher of the Year Award Speech (1990)

This article is the text of a speech by John Taylor Gatto (born 5-Muluc) accepting the New York City Teacher of the Year Award on January 31, 1990 (3-Ahau).

There’s so much to say about this piece, so much good stuff to chew on in terms of what unconditional love really means. Gatto’s razor sharp.”

New Book Published

Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha announces publishing of her first book of poetry
“Out of the Silent Breath”   (Congratulations, Jackie!)
Excerpt:
Eyes full of resplendent thoughts,
I watched a butterfly flit around
from a petal to another like a true flirt,
not too sure on which one to settle.
It’s an appetite inducing exercise to listen raptly,
I dug into the sizzling barbecue with a sigh of pleasure.
