ghazal: Weikert 2014


There’s no wifi, points don’t matter
But before each meal
We pause to give thanks

Fallen tree diverted the trail
Along shaded rail line
Where folks gave thanks

Infant music box conjures
Ice cream, grass stained fun
And fire flies giving thanks

Intense or cursive the
Fire circle discussion
Solves enough to give thanks

Joy of sewing triumph fades
Quickly with news of three
Sleeping so well to give thanks

Juggling cans, crossing over
Monkey bridge where laurel
Line the path saying thanks






Composed in Weikert, PA


Note: This ghazal is composed of six individual sherku. Each will be posted separately to quietpoet.com/

Deja Brew: 'Band of Brewers' return for 6 kettles


Friday night, summer time, and a good time to make some beer. The 'Band of Brewers' gathered at Deja Brew for a set of six kettles. A good mix of some favorites and some new ones.

Blueberry Ale = A delicious ale. It smells good, tastes good and finishes clean
Death Star II: Return of the Citra = A new IPA, so new it isn't listed on the DejaBrew webpage
Lobster Claw = A highly aromatic barley wine. Very Potent.
Nessie Scotch Ale = So new, it isn't listed on the DejaBrew webpage
Sammy's Summer = Modeled after a popular summer ale from Boston
Stunner = A creamy British Pub style pale ale “stunning colour”

We'll be back in three weeks to bottle and bring home to enjoy!
