About Words

.

“The only

stupid thing

about words

is the spelling

of them.”

.

~ Laura Ingalls Wilder

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

spell

elf talk

mush the room

from gnome to nome

charm

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

hearts pitter patter

feelings indescribable

everlasting love

.

Poem:

.

the candle is a wonderful little light
it can make every darkness bright

a kindness can make everything right
it will make sorrow take flight

being patient is being polite
it puts frustration in a highlight

tolerance is to never get uptight
it means to give up the fight

forgiveness is to erase the board outright
history always belongs in hindsight

love is the ultimate in delight
it keeps the reason for living in sight

taking the will of a Higher Power to a new height
be kind, be patient and tolerant, be forgiving, love
and enjoy this life with all of your might

Your Apprenticeship

.

Most people

won’t realize that

writing is a craft.

You have to take

your apprenticeship in it

like anything else.”

.

~ Katherine Anne Porter

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

savor

taste good

sweet and sour

food hits the spot

flavor

.

Haiku:

.

daylight starts to wane

cool mornings herald winter

migrations begin

.

Poem:   no rhyme today, just a prose rambling

.

a little bird sitting upon a line
don’t do it, don’t do it,  don’t
he did it
poor  Miguel

he opened his thermos
the soup was cold

he opened his bucket
the bread had mold

he was too close to the mud puddle
when the bus came along

he was one number off
when the lotto was drawn

it was just one of those days
when nothing went right

along came Sofia
for Miguel a perfect sight

isn’t it wonderful how love
makes everything alright
