2-15-2011 poems: Flags, Enjoying Tea

2-15-2011 — Flags

In the wind they wave

20, maybe 50 feet, high

Planes fly by the,

Birds, too.

Clouds dance in the distance

Sometimes I see the sunshine

Reflecting through

When it does,

The flag looks faded,

The edges frayed.

The deep blue a strange attempt at royal blue.

The red a peculiar pink.

The white? Off-white.

Some flags look as if

They’ve flown non-stop

Since the Reagan Administration.

Frayed, tattered.

Were they the flag from

Francis Scott Key’s poem?

Pathetic.

Flags are the new Rodney Dangerfield.

 

2-15-2011 — Enjoying Tea

Freshly-brewed

Ice-cold

Sweet tea

On a hot summer day

In South Texas.

Ahhhhhh!
