Two Poems By Russel Winick


On Valentine’s Day I read postings and poems
By folks who sound blessed with the happiest homes.
The skeptic in me must still wonder, of course,
If any might be on the verge of divorce.
Family Get-Togethers

A cousin succumbed to a rather long illness,
A Zoom call was set for all with family ties.
And everyone said quite nice things of the others,
They’ll do it again after someone else dies.

Mr. Winick began writing poetry several years ago, after concluding a long career as a business attorney. He composes mostly formal poems, although his two favorite poems – Langston Hughes’ Mother to Son and Robert Hayden’s Those Winter Sundays – are both free verse.

Over 200 of Mr. Winick’s poems have been published in nearly a score of online and print journals in the USA and abroad.
