The Making

.

“Poetry is an act of peace.

Peace goes into

the making of a poet

as flour goes into

the making of bread.”

.

~ Pablo Neruda

Elfje:

.

tranquility

quiet inspiration

the silent universe

God’s opportunity to talk

serenity

.

Haiku:

.

poems conception

must quiet the noisy mind

let nature inspire

.

Poem:

.

sitting in the city

listening to the sirens

not a native to these environs

hard to adapt to the nitty gritty

.

the crime, the violence, such a pity

all is lost, nothing is on the horizons

sitting in the city

listening to the sirens

.

the news tries to be witty

attempts to shine like diamonds

the truth as remote as far off islands

pretending that all is pretty

sitting in the city

.

.

ME and the Boss

.

This form is called a Rondel.
