Rushing By Ray A Young Bear

Yellow November
comes swaying,
I feel the hooded man
drawing move on my cousin's
Black pellets drop
to the floor
their ears full with
his lungs is the rush
of his bundkled-up
Bits of bread
pie and cake are placed
in a dish.
I heard that in the night
a deer whistled out his name
from a cornfield and gave
him its antlers.
spreading his thoughts
through the dark.
Years later,
as i warmed the shadow
inside my jacket over the stove,
my mother found a spring
and she brought the first
taste to everyone in a tin
silver cup, passing it
drinking her words.
In some mronings,
as icy as it was,
I washed my face in it
sometimes thinking
of the hooded man and the fox.
the rushing sounds of a river
under our house.

Reading Is Knowing!

Reading helps,
Reading opens our eyes.

 The school is out,
The concert is on.

 The books are on sale,
The bakery is open.

 We read to know,
and to expect the result.

 Awesome business in town,
Square root of a negative number such as 1 is i.

 Shopping at department store, we walk,
We speak and discuss options to options.

 Reading printed words is good,
Reading others' body language or verbal expression takes wit.
