The Face Of God

.

“To love

another person

is to see the

face of God.”

face

look to

fight to win

see what is ahead

confront

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

love is in the air

the atmosphere is pleasing

beautiful people

a gleeful wedding party

everyone has the feeling

.

Poem:

.

every thought is a prayer
a question or an answer to declare
no need to kneel beside the bed
close the eyes and clear the head

gratitude must be a part of the morning prayer
identifying, trying not to compare
challenging a faith that comes and goes
a soul that doubts what others propose

my whole life has been a wish and a prayer
the outcome, I deem, has been unfair
in God’s time all prayers are answered
like wildflowers his blessings scattered

it is alright to borrow someone else’s prayer
knowing that a prayer will go everywhere
some may receive its benefits, some may not
what is nice is that you gave them a thought

be careful what you pray for,
you might just get it

Every Weirdo

“Every weirdo

in the world

is on my

wavelength.”

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

strange

real queer

more than odd

a small bit quaint

weird

Poem:

.

pondering do I have a philosophy
conjuring up Socrates subconsciously
does my life really have a meaning
if I’m lucky I might just be dreaming

Dad said I should always be kind
love is what Mother brought to mind
can’t remember what the preacher said
the teacher tried to pound it into my head

good and bad are a matter of opinion
is there a God who has total dominion
what does ugly know about aesthetics
what percent of me is in the genetics

eureka, I got it while I was drinking
my philosophy requires no thinking

it is what it is
