Easier Done Than Said

“Lovers meander
in prose and rhyme,

trying to say                                                                                -for the thousandth time-

what’s easier done                                                                   
than said.”

snap

crackle pop

in a wink

just like moma said

easy

Haiku:

.

languid seas drifting

gentle waves lap at the shore

natures calm moment

Poem:

.

love is of unique importance to every soul                                                                                                            the object loved will make the difference                                                                                                                God said it takes two to make a whole                                                                                                                  you and your Higher Power entwined in reverence

love is the bond of the Universe                                                                                                                              souls seeking souls driven by instinct                                                                                                                    distance and time love does traverse                                                                                                                social customs help to make love distinct

love is the mystical magical                                                                                                                                      easier done than said                                                                                                                                                love provides nothing practical                                                                                                                              but without it we would all be dead

too much love has been known to do harm                                                                                                              be a lover, turn on your true charm

A Love Of Words

“…fine love poetry

tends to be written

when the object of

one’s affection is

at a safe distance;

also,

it often reflects

a love of words

more than a love of women…”

,

― Kate Fox

Elfje:   (Cinquain)

go

no wait

maybe we can

make up our minds

indecision

.

Haiku:

.

colorful rainbow

natures eternal promise

life giving water

.

Poem:

.

modern times demand modern poetry

how is that done with old fashioned words

must we reinvent a modern psychiatry

easier to just smoke some old fashioned herbs

.

can the poet create a new set of feelings

make his message more obscure

manufacture words with new meanings

stoop to using semantics that are impure

.

the easiest motive is to be yourself

trust God that he made you unique

be honest, the best poem is oneself

can you live with your own critique

.

everything happens in God’s time

the poets acceptance is declared in his rhyme
