Mirage Oases By Kay Ryan

First among places
susceptible to trespass
are mirage oases.
Whose graduated pools
and shaded grasses, palms
and speckled fishes give
before the lightest pressure
and are wrecked.
For they live
only in the kingdom
of suspended wishes.
Thrives only at out pleasure

November 28, 2012

End of autumn,
Beginning of the winter
Fall semester is almost over.
Thanksgiving is over,
Instant switch of holiday season,
Colorful lights flash.
Shopping malls,
Weekend customers are full,
Gifts in bags, blissful.
