Blues under the wheelbarrow

Blues under the wheelbarrow

Taps and Ratamacues

The white chicken
longs for

her li’l red rooster,
and cries

pooling tears
-same as the rain water-

on the barnyard floor
for a day.

***************
Inspired by William Carlos Williams poem XXII (The Red Wheelbarrow) and The Little Red Rooster, a blues standard, recorded by Howling Wolf.

A thanks to the good folks at WordPress for selecting my blog for Freshly Pressed feature and thanks to all who have dropped in via “Freshly Pressed.” I hope you like the poetry. Please feel free to visit often and comment.
