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

Nov
12

Out of the darkened night air
trudged the shadow
a man tattered soiled and stained
opaque hair greasy slick
beard tangled twisted gray
his plop pop echoed pecking the solid floor

ghostly flakes whirled chilling stone
a moment’s peace to ease his glacial roots
a call came to the station
a jogger found the man a John Doe
found him under a bridge

tattered soiled and stained
his head laid on a pillow
red white and blue
not a penny in his pocket
not a wallet with his name
his sandals were silent once more.

. . .

Today I thought I would do something different. I wanted to spread a message, a thought. I read poetry and I write it because it’s the heart of a write, his soul put to paper. It’s the life blood of great literature. Without it those works just would not be.

I wonder how many readers, know this? So many have told me they don’t read poetry . . . They must not understand or they simply don’t read? I can’t imagine not reading, not for a moment.

Each and every great novelist was a poet first. Hemingway, Poe, you name them and somewhere they wrote prose at sometime. They learned the magic of words, making them sing.

I find that I don’t love all poetry or all poets . . . But I read them as though I’m searching for a gem and I find ones I love. Somehow they have weathered all time and reached out to me . . . Dreams are yours to share. Dan

By William Blake

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England’s mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England’s pleasant pastures seen?

And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among those dark Satanic Mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold!
Bring me my arrows of desire!
Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire!

I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England’s green and pleasant land.

The wind whines outside my window

a white blanket lies down upon the land

the trees seem barren and oh so alone

and the chilling cold has enveloped

my world

and yet I know winter

is losing its hold on us all

Spring’s thaw is on its way

as is the summer heat and soon

Fall will be here chilling

my bones once more.

We are the protectors
of puppy dog dreams
. . . with a wee cuteness
he bounces into our lives
his baby like likeness

captures our hearts
our socks become his toys
a rag doll becomes his best friend
while we are away . . . and our shoes
become merely collateral damage

still our love grows
toward the innocent
unprotected child
. . . we make excuses
for his mischievous ways

we say . . . he didn’t know
in truth he’s mended
the ach in our lonely hearts
with his squeak of an
itty bitty bark

he gently nibbles our hand
until . . . we pick him up and
quickly he falls silently asleep
in the bosom of our laps and he
dreams . . . puppy dog dreams.

I am a minstrel
haunted by misdeeds
words bring my baggage
to light I bare those
thoughts . . . alone

I wasn’t prepared . . .
The Price Was High
happiness material
matters taint the walls
will do the same

I live a mystical life
far from hidden half-truths
regrets are not mine alone
I tried to live without
them . . . no one can

I am a writer . . . a poet
. . . an observer . . .
many see me as being weak
filled of emotion
they are wrong

I can be cruel as the next
but that baggage a burden
that will follow all the
days of our lives and to the
death . . . those

I have chosen to walk without
regrets unfulfilled dreams
choices mine theirs deeds
left to chance other’s
decisions that hurt me . . . as

I look back I know time has
brought me to these four
walls alone my regrets
I keep to myself
. . . forever.

Sometimes I could just scream
we preach the golden rule
we think everyone knows of such
a thing and yet we just can’t see
their pain . . .

sometimes we can’t see past
our slant sloped noses and then
and then something happens something so
big so wonderful it opens each of our
hearts . . .

a friend we know takes in a
homeless stranger he takes her
into his heart he gives her
shelter in a time of need
she’s sick with no one

and our friend opens his home
his heart . . . his wife drives
her to the pantry and she
confesses ‘I’ve got just six
months’ . . .

and nothing seems as important
church bells are ringing
. . . feel the chill we’ve
gained another two . . . our friend
Jim and the Mrs.

Burburp brrburr burbrr . . .

gray-brown gray-black
darkness falls free flowing
yellow salt-taffy pulling

stretching eternal lines flashing
slicing straight toffee tarmacs
reddish blues greenish yellows

lazily hazily blinking
no one seeing the black snake
streaking eternally another day

slithering toward somewhere going
no where . . . a man lies on the side of
the road head propped against a pack

long greasy hair blowing beard tangled
blending eyes closed to the brightness
sleep has interfered and . . .

hardly moving few notice
the figure lying on the hardness
under the blue December sky . . .

a wasteland lies ahead . . .
we can’t any more and so
we just continue to roll along

. . . burbrr brrburr burburp.

What makes us pet puppies
coo for babies drawn toward
green sprouts pushing up
through the dark soil

what makes us tiptoe searching for
baby chicks grabs us as a family of
feathery ducks parade with their
broods of fluff in tow

what makes the rain sweeter . . .
marigolds lilacs or magnolias what
makes the evening sights magenta . . .
Spring or something much bigger

whatever it is its part of us
part of our inners makes us tremble
at the site of the Grand Canyon
a shell a rock a leaf and it always

begins with a question what makes the
water blue the grass green what makes
the waves in the oceans and not the
lakes why . . . why are we here

maybe we’re not alone maybe it’s
by design maybe we’re here to help
build a better place or maybe to make
a difference . . . maybe to plant

a seed and so we lose sight of the
not so important things illness death
we sow the ground fallow and numbly
we pass the time just treading water.

You don’t know me
though I know you

we are as different
as we are alike

we come from the earth
the ying and the yang

you know everyone like me
I know those like you

we share a bond . . . common
as sickness sadness happiness

friendship love hate birth
and even death

I am your brother I am your father
your friend your lover

we’ve hugged we’ve kissed
fought and even made love

I’ve felt the warmth of your embrace
and your moist lips against mine

I’ve felt the strength of your
compassion you’ve felt mine

we are all connected one to
the other forever and ever.

Today for the first
time I spied a flower so sweet
so innocent . . . I wondered why
why do we hate dandelions so
Why do we hate anything

so beautiful do we see
their tiny yellow petals as
they really are or has our
hate clouded our thoughts

innocent youth pregnant green
and bursting forth blowing in a
breeze spreading its seed
until the dust
devours all.
