Cheer

014

“A poet is

a nightingale,

who sits in darkness

and sings to cheer

its own solitude

with sweet sounds.”

.

~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

Troiku

.

the rainy season

thunder and lightening daily

swamps are being born

 

the rainy season

daylight goes from long to short

warm oceans give birth

 

raining cats and dogs

thunder and lightening daily

life’s vital water

 

Mother Natures gifts

the Great Creators bounty

swamps are being born

* 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

Feelings

008

.

Painting is poetry

that is seen

rather than felt,

and poetry is painting

that is felt

rather than seen.”

.

― Leonardo da Vinci

.

As the man waited for his muse to arise

he sat at his desk and contemplated his feelings.

I am happy to be breathing he surmised

what other emotions can be so revealing

.

So let us shoot for the stars, let us be exuberant

could have, should have and would have are too depressing

let the spirits arise, let us opine to be more jubilant

find the soul that smiles a lot and to them be acquiescing

.

The muse was so enraptured with the glee

the words poured forth like a babbling brook

no chains, no fetters just wind blown and free

everything rhymed and chimed, even the gobbledygook

.

An attitude of gratitude arose in the writer

He knew that mirth is the gleam in God’s eye

his soul was unburden and it became lighter

knowing that happiness and love can fill the sky

.

The words will end, but the feeling must last

so he used his rhyme to paint the merry festival

surprised to learn that happy can be both present and past,

feelings and thoughts that can celebrate the fanciful

.

The muse is within all of us, be happy my friend

the glad feelings and thoughts must never end …
