Peter Venable

3 poems

 

Sun Spill

Threads of light hang from cloud skirts,
dabbing beach streets with swabs of steam.


On a pier

an octogenarian kneads sunscreen
into knotted cypress knees.


I Hitchhiked

by an interstate bridge
knee-deep in retreads.


Peter Venable is serving a life sentence, condemned to compose verse.


 

Peter Venable

Motionless,
crows eye me from branches and one, on a stump,

displays wings—a parasol of sheen
in sun’s shaft.

 

Peter Venable has written hundreds of poems over decades, been published elsewhere, sings, writes, counsels, inspires, and is happily married with a fine daughter, son-in-law,and Yeshua.

Peter Venable

The Nazarene eyed the temple and spoke
of stones crumbling to dust, of stars dropping like hail
on lanes, meadows, trees 

the sun black as a crow’s eye.
