Inspired

” If I feel physically

as if the top of my head

were taken off,

I know that is poetry.”

.

― Emily Dickinson

Winners will surface

POEM :    

(Prose w/ some rhymes and a little meter mixed in)

Getting out of bed
happy to greet the day
good thoughts going through the head
is it time to work or time to play

Inspired to do it alone
or is the team required
planning to follow the stepping stone
seeking an outcome to be admired

Stymied by reality
expense versus practicality
time to switch to plan “B”
searching for the missing key
two steps forward, one step back
trying to avoid the heart attack

Close, but no cigar
do not lose the dream
keep shooting for the star
avoid going to the extreme

And when the day is done
count your blessings one by one
say thank you God for giving me the chance
and ask for the strength to face tomorrows
song and dance.

Dictionary

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

.

“Poetry is a

deal of joy

and pain

and wonder,

with a dash

of the dictionary.”

Khalil Gibran

.

.

Haiku :

the English language

more than a quarter million

words that sometimes rhyme

.

Elfje :

words

mental images

beliefs, cognition, judgement

thoughts that are conveyed

language

.

Poem :  abab, cdcd, efef, gg      (sonnet)

.

there are people who can talk forever

and never say a thing

they think they are so clever

like a yo-yo on a string

.

up and down, up and down

the same thing over and over

around and around and around

never ending like a field of clover

.

the dictionary they believe

is only for the teacher

it is only lies that they know how to weave

maybe they should be a preacher

.

no dictionary needed, love knows how to melt

when the language of the heart can always be felt

.
