The Ancients

.

“It has been said

by the ancients

that poetry is a

picture without form,

and painting is a

poem with form”

.

– HuaI (Song Dynasty)

.

Elfje:

.

form

or function

words or shapes

art for arts sake

ancient

.

Elfje   (Cinquain)

.

gasp

can’t breathe

trying to survive

everything is black and white

nightmare

.

Haiku:

.

nature has her form

survival of the fittest

are we included

.

Poem:

.

flights of fantasy, daydreams

over and over the same unreal themes

the what if I were rich instead of beautiful

dancing, singing, the star of a musical

.

no morbid thoughts to inspire a poem

wishing the reveries were to be an omen

castles in the air sparked by jealously

life’s decisions handled carelessly

.

dreams, not goals, wasting life’s precious moment

my lethargy being my own worst opponent

move a muscle, change a thought

maybe today, maybe today,  I’ll hit the jackpot

.

.

ME and the Boss
