3rd Place Winter Poetry Contest Winner: Progressive Evolution - Jimmy Martines

Let the borrowed breaths of yesterday

bless the wilted flower.

Another hopeful bud

will mete the world with change this spring.

And the elected egos beating chests

on the council of the hour

will be bought and sold for arbitrage

in an evolutionary gain.

The caterpillar’s stunning wings;

the tadpole’s elastic thighs;

a promise for the ages

in every child’s eyes.


Jimmy Martines is a poet, fiction writer, painter and woodworker. He is ever inspired by bringing ideas to life in a variety of mediums. Jimmy is employed as Vice President and General Counsel for the College of Southern Nevada.
