Joe Blades | Fredericton, NB | LCP member since 1990


seeds of creation   of change   await the magic
hope   a little frustration   even full-blown anger
—the keys do nothing without your touch

words of encouragement   music and song
cause wonder—all the world’s a stage wrote the bard
why ‘attend’ when you can perform? said andrew

with a little soil   water   sunlight or a grow-lamp
this could become a garden plot desktop manageable
by anyone inspired to become a living poet
