Greetings everyone and welcome to another edition of Friday Night Poetry Corner #30 (yes the big 30 to which i just entered myself lol)–
Anyway, here are two intriguing yet unique poems by Arthur Turfa. First one is called “The Conversation” and the second one “Precession of the Equinox: Polaris Shifts.” I enjoyed both of theses joints and hopefully you will as well. This poet was featured on ATLPOETICS blog and if you have the time, stop by the blog and read other fine poets. Thank you for visiting and if you are writing, drawing, painting, oral speech making, etc…
