A Particle Of Life

.

“There is not

a particle of life

which does not bear

poetry within it”

.

~ Gustave Flaubert

.

.

poetry

atoms moving

seen or unseen

noise, music, heard, unheard

Creation

.

Haiku

.

the seasons rhythm

a cadence of sights and sounds

creations poem

.

Poem

.

sounds used to convey a thought

man uses his words to converse

ideas which cannot be taught

understanding is always diverse

.

the writer calls it poetry

the reader has his opinion

does it rhyme or is it free

whose interpretation has dominion

.

poems are written to fill a void

how to describe ones ivory castle

sounds and ideas are then employed

from head to heart they travel

.

like the rhythm of the universe

a good poem never ends

time and space they do traverse

languages and cultures it transcends

.

a poem exist in every particle of life

every breath and every idea

the writer but a midwife

always seeking the ideal panacea

.

today this castle is made of sand

awaiting the tide to come in

written with a story unplanned

hoping above hope to win

.

your point of view, my sentiment

how important is it and this too shall pass

knowing all who read this and every poem will benefit

allowing everyone to see through the looking glass

The Possibilities

“Listen,

real poetry

doesn’t say anything;

it just ticks off

the possibilities.

Opens all doors.

You can walk through

anyone that suits you.”

.

― Jim Morrison

.

Elfje:

.

Imagine

the possibilities

whatever the direction

forward, backward, up, down

moving

.

Haiku:

.

I once had a choice

endless possibilities

procrastinated

.

Poem:   Just Make Do

.

God does not close the door of opportunities

without giving a new path to explore

sometimes two or more possibilities

maybe even a window or  a hole in the floor

.

crying over spilled milk, things lost

only blurs the vision of one’s past

be vigilant of the paths yet crossed

chances usually disappear very fast

.

having a clear and open mind is paramount

smile and present a determined attitude

believe there are no obstacles you cannot surmount

be a winner, let your spirit be renewed

.

living life moment to moment in today

keeping just the right amount on your plate

seeking the positive to keep fear at bay

be willing, be ready, know how to celebrate

.

when the door of blessings beckons

take the one that best suits you

positively never ever settle for seconds

and whatever the outcome, just make do.
