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
checked.

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.
