Sun and Rain

Check out Joop Bersee's latest online collection Sun and Rain. Consisting of about 70 poems, the collection ranges in subject matter from Baby Jordan, Telly Savalas, John Lennon, Dylan Thomas and Goethe, to dogs, cats and undertakers, as well as visiting museums or sitting in hospital waiting rooms.

One of my favourites is the following:

Art lesson number one

Some say that the paintings
by Willem de Kooning are

absolutely rubbish, trash.
That you can turn them 90

degrees, 180 degrees, 270
degrees and still they don't

make any sense.
Then I tell them: look out

of the window.
Does that make any sense?
