Dan Hanosh’s The Moon Also Rises
dreams to come and thoughts of tomorrow

Nov
23

Silently sleeps our
inner giant the same
steers us through
the mist of lonely
thought . . .

our ears little and
resolute can’t echo
their whispered
words

we’re not privy to
their silent plans . . .
of needs of us in
whispered words

of twisted pangs those
hired moguls . . . their
lies incite us we follow
their lead to a cliff

one by one
we march into the dark
abyss behind us heated
breaths anxiously pushing
. . . because.

. . .

A darkened path leads
to nowhere just ends in the air
and yet maybe it continues on to
a place so beautiful we just
can’t see it what if . . .

what if what we can’t see is really
there just invisible a slope of a
nose rounds and seems to fall away
but does it maybe it continues to
a point . . .

what if the land continues beyond
the shores of a lake it seems to end
to stop at its edge what if the imaginary
is real and the real is imaginary what
if everything is flipped on its ass

and what if we are the only ones
to see it . . . words like crazy
will be said will be heard and yet
the realm of possibility never
precludes any of it.

Something new for me . . . my god must be a lesbian, was incited by poems by Robert Bly . . . Buried deep within us, is a desire to be accepted. We go so far as to give our discomforts a ritual riteousness. Anything in order to give them credence. And yet, we believe the power from above, forgives everything , , ,

my god must be a lesbian

my god is everything to everyone
he’s a breeze on a hot Kansas day a
drink of water simmering in the desert
sand he’s a warm blanket on a cold
winter’s night . . . he must be

my god is happiness when sadness
devours us he’s the bread we eat
when we’re hungry the air we breath
he’s the soil that covers us when
we are no more . . . he must be

my god is our tormentor and our
salvation he’s the hater and the
hated he’s of darkened skin or
covered with a veil he’s the
night and the day . . . he must be

my god is good and evil he’s
life and death our today’s and
tomorrow’s he is everything to
everyone my god must be
a lesbian . . . he must be.

My mind dreams of days
long gone silver locks fall
into my eyes my belly hangs
over my belt and yet I don’t

mind so much anymore nobody
minds much anymore for all
that’s important is the words
and just as long as my fingers
keep punching down on
the plastic keys

I don’t miss much anymore
those fingers fly until my
thoughts stumble over and
fall into that crevice

life raises its ugliness
once more and then I stop
for a moment cough and
bang a few more keys.

i must keep quiet
yet how can i for
i know why . . . i know
Ernest’s darkest day
and the secret he carried
all the way to his grave

i can’t say aloud . . . you
wouldn’t believe anyhow
and yet you should know
i want to cry out to run
to hide

i can’t in my heart idly
stand by accuse point or shout
certainly i can’t say why
too much time has gone away
and yet the feeling
swells deep deep inside

it’s always the inverse of
too much never enough as
was his dream as is mine
silently my lips form the
slurred f . . . family
friends and fakes and
of course just being
a writer

living a writer’s meager
kind of life of fear as it finds
its way into their hearts only i’ll
never know for i’m the same as him
just another lonely outcast
a writer of words.

Where does
the tooth fairy go
where did she come from
what makes a man a man
or a woman a woman

is truth all there is
or just our good names
are we supposed to work
every waking day
or is there more

sometimes I think
I have done it all before
I have no regrets
because I know.

. . .

Do you read poetry? Do you buy poetry books?

I do . . . I’m not sure I would know how to act if I didn’t . . . Let me explain. I love the beautiful words. I love reading them out loud. I’ve been reading, Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass for several years now. And I can honestly say I love it.

Today I will start reading Robert Bly . . . I saw him on PBS and I knew he was someone I wanted to know . . . He was where I wanted to go as a poet. And so today I plan to start reading, Eating The Honey Of Words by Robert Bly. And I’m so very excited for I’m meeting a new friend. I’m moving to a new level as a writer, as a poet.

I remember when I first started writing, my stories, my poems weren’t very good . . . But they were thoughts from my innermost place deep within and that alone I thought was special. Maybe to me, but . . . And my second book, Sleepless Nights, is very special. Everyone has a roll model and I was lucky to have written with mine, shared a moment with my friend.

And soon I will start another poetical journey to another place, another mystical land . . . My friend, he wants to make the journey with me and together we will float the sea of dreams.

I hope you get a chance to read Sleepless Nights, for you are the reason I write, it was written for you with love. Dreams are yours to share. Dan

I am thankful

I am thankful
for the fishes that swim in the seas
and for the lakes and for the streams

I am thankful
for the trees that keeps the blistering
sun off our shoulders

I am thankful
for the wind that cools our faces
on the coldest winter’s day

I am thankful
for the sunshine that thaws our lands
and warms our hands and keeps us fed

I am thankful
for love . . . and friendship how it has made our
world a little more endearing

I am thankful
for that which our children have given . . . for
a world without probably would have died long ago

I am thankful
for our homes they protect us against the evil
that walks a path different from our own

I am thankful
for the light in which we labor
and for the night which embraces our souls

I am thankful
for good health and the intellect to know
when our time is about up

I am thankful
for the view outside my window and the cardinal perching
hidden in a pine with its crimson coat shining

I am thankful
for the autumn harvest it reminds me of those
who have toiled and died long ago

I am thankful
for the air we breathe
but especially

I am thankful
for the time I have to write for that
is truly . . . ALL IMPORTANT to me.

And I started to wonder why
. . . why sweet magnolia trees don’t
grow in the frigid north

are we deprived . . . it can’t
be our lack of love can it
. . . we love stray dogs

heck . . . we love each other
don’t we . . . or is it
something more sinister

are we a cold cold climate with
cold cold hearts . . . is snow’s frosty
flakes our only magnolia blossoms

hmmm . . . but I’d have to say . . .
if their pristine petals were plastic
we’d have millions . . . don’t ya think?

Poetry comes from the soul, words screaming to get out, to be shouted from the mountain tops and to the shores of the seas. Words that sing, that sing the song of love, words that taste, taste sourness or the sweetness of the grapes and the smells of everything that need to be.

Feel my pain, live my thoughts, dream my dreams and then write of your own . . . Poetry is a gift to be shared, whether from long ago or from today with those of tomorrow . . .

A slap in the face a thousand years ago is felt today or tomorrow or a thousand years from now. Dreams are yours to share. Dan
