Judging the River (Poem)

By Daniel Rigney

 

World's finest river? Be the judge.

If  depth is what you want,

the Congo wins hands down --

its deepest point 800 feet beneath the air.

The Congo has its shallows, to be sure.

But where it's deep, no other river can compare.

The narrowest river in the world, Mongolia’s…

Twas the Night of Black Friday

Twas the night of Black Friday, and all through the towns

Eager shoppers had hunted for the best bargains around.

They showed up in droves, stood in line before dawn,

To ensure they got the deals before they were gone.

 

When the doors opened, they pushed and they shoved.

They had to get perfect gifts for the ones that they loved.

It didn’t matter how much money they spent,

The look on their faces would be worth years of…

Forgiving Me

 Forgiving Me



Am thankful for forgiving

for to hold on to such poison

is a death within itself

which rots the host from deep inside

the casing holds but we have died

consumed with malcontent and hate

which kills love that should radiate

to draw those stuck in darker places

lighting up a world of faces

and know I’m guilty of this sin

to hang on…

Forever Thankful

Forever Thankful



Forever thankful for my life;

reflecting on the days gone by

the times of new discovery,

the ways life’s lessons came to me,

the understanding little things

and knowing what right action brings;

those hard times when the world looked dark,

were new life journeys to embark;  

another book, chapter or page

which quelled the anger and…

By Our Words…

By Our Words…



I found myself without a friend for something that I said

and though I’d said a million things this one had made me dead

to her and all her hopes and dreams; for each who had a face,

somehow I slipped the balance beam and fell out of her grace



As always in my daily life my mouth preceded me

although I thought I had insight, I guess I could not…

To My Surprise

To My Surprise

Left to imagine yesterday
and I continue on
as I imagine each, its way
even imagining today.

Ghost Of Soldier

Ghost Of Soldier

 

A voice cried over mist filled field

just loud enough to hear

and drew me from the place I lay

to where each step brought fear

 

But still I traveled forward

through thicket, marsh then trees

and found the ghost of soldier

looking up from bended knees 

 

He turned toward me then beckoned

as I closed the space between

his uniform changed often

as I lived…

On The Sea Tranquility

On The Sea Tranquility

 

Intensity of tranquility

would bring some to nirvana  

but as for me I am lost at sea

in search, for I am restless

but sad to say any other way

there’s confusion in my plan…

Fades the autumn rose

sometimes, there were quiet…

Election Day

 

We vote for suspenders or belt;

one choice; never both,

two vow to hold our pants up;

they swear by their oath

but I’m wearing sweats

and they don’t figure…

The Sport Of Hunting

The Sport Of Hunting

 

Deer feel danger in the air

as hunters target in their weapons;

the sport of hunting
