Neil Ellman-

Earth Breathe

Earth Breathe
a breath
of blue
green poetry
of air
in fire
your moment
in the sun.



Somewhere in the stars
among the bleached-white
bones of prophecy
where planets go to die
like doddering old men
spittle on their mouths
and the gnarr
of desperate words
we seek patterns
in chaotic stones
the scattered debris
of light and dark
and finding none
discover heresy.


Some Other Sun

He who would be
some other sun than this
one who babbles
an old man and his
mistress moon
she anticipates
his words…some
not of anything
other than the spots
on a bubbling face
he knows
she knows
of age
blistering age
some other sun
that he would be.

Neil Ellman lives and writes in New Jersey (USA).  Fast approaching his 500th published poem, his work appears in print and online journals throughout the world, from Australia to Zimbabwe.  The latest of his eight chapbooks, Convergence and Conversion, is now available from The Knives Forks and Spoons Press.
