Awareness

.

“The only thing

that can save the world

is the reclaiming of the

awareness of the world.

That’s what poetry does.”

.

~ Allen Ginsberg

Elfje:

.

bright

warm feeling

clouds gently billow

plants nod in agreement

sun

.

Haiku:  (traditional 5-7-5 )

.

wind gently whispers

nature calls for attention

all senses aroused

.

Haiku: (modern 6-5-6)

.

wobbly earth fluctuates

species come and go

global warming happens

.

POEM:

does the world need to be saved
my mortality really doesn’t care
legacies belong to the depraved

my garden feeds the birds and the bees
does nature notice that I am aware
will all be erased by another disease

can my poem be the lighthouse
will artificial intelligence become god
do universities create the theories to espouse

few are the souls who salvation is craved
is there anything that is not flawed
does the world need to be saved.

.

ME and the Boss
