Troiku – August Rain

001

.

“Poetry is just the

evidence of life.

If your life is

burning well,

poetry is just

the ash.”

.

~ Leonard Cohen

A Twixt and Tween troiku*

.

August Rain

.

water lilies bloom

floating on the quiet pond

summers tranquil best

.

water lilies bloom

nectar for the damsel fly

beauty for mans soul

.

the clouds reflections

floating on the quiet pond

thunderstorms brewing

.

replenishing rain

rain drops and insects droning

summers tranquil best

.

ME and the Boss

* A creative alteration of the original Troiku form.
In this form the first stanza shares the first line of the origina haiku.
The second line is the middle line of the second stanza.
The third line is the last line in the last section.

Happy People

.

“The Secret Society

of Happy People

supports people who want

to share their happiness

despite the ones who don’t

want to hear happy news.

Their mottos include

“Happiness Happens” and

“Don’t Even Think

of Raining on My Parade”. *

Poems are happy …

Poetry is happy …

.

Haiku:

minds know jubilant

bodies being jovial

soul is rapturous

.

Haiku:

two hearts happiness

all seasons of God’s blessings

kindness and true love

.

(the second haiku is in the traditional form                                                                                                               which requires that natures seasons be referenced)

.

Elfje:

gratitude

smile attitude

most pleasant aptitude

thinking only the best

happiness

.

Poem:

.

think of only the good, baby

almost as sweet as candy, maybe

let them believe that you are, daffy

maybe this is a poem, almost whacky

hooey gooey as much fun as, taffy

a good attitude makes life , easy peasy

always willing to share, gladly

never is not in the vocabulary, maybe

love as unconditional as a warm, puppy

it is just fun to always be, happy

* The Society was founded in August 1998
in Irving, Texas, by Pamela Gail Johnson.
In 1999 the Society declared  August 8
as Admit You’re Happy Day
(now Happiness Happens Day).
