Lois Walker


I am still around

looking, always looking

and glad    even excited

to see what is right here

that belongs to me

the push

of the brush remembered

as colors found their place.

and the tubing, copper trees

twisted, shaped     the gentle

resistance as the trunk

and branches curved to my touch

it is about love, you know

creating a world of praise

for all that being alive

can give

has given me

has given us.

LOIS WALKER is a poet, painter and sculptor who has been a part of Long Island’s poetry scene for many years and has enjoyed seeing it grow more active during that time with much satisfaction. Keep it going.
