A Way With Language

.

“Deep feeling

doesn’t make

for good poetry.

A way with language

would be a bit

of help.”

.

~ Thom Gunn

Elfje:

.

feel

sad, glad

write the words

does it make sense

poetry

.

Haiku:

.

bugs ate the blossoms

nature cares for every one

pests need to eat too

.

Poem:

.

happiness is a poem

feelings left open

stories to be told

opinions uncontrolled

.

from a to zed

the living and the dead

words come alive

ideas on overdrive

.

enjoy the effort

call it desert

and when it’s done

concede to fun

.

forever butterflies

smelly teas roses

affections displayed

hearts accolade

.

emotions showing

senses growing

read and write

connoisseurs delight

.

for good poetry

it was a way with language.

Never Mind

 

.

“The poet is a light

and winged and holy thing,

and there is no invention

in him until he has been

inspired and is out of his senses,

and the mind is no longer in him.”

~ Plato, Ion

.

Elfje:

.

inspired

thinking begins

the spirit intercedes

poetry evolves of itself

ethereal

.

Haiku:

.

oppressive damp heat

summer begins to invade

nature adapts well

.

Poem:

.

words are both sounds and shapes

waiting to be both heard and seen

providing incredible unrealistic escapes

delivering lines we can read between

.

words are a source of inspiration

the minds eye seeks out a definition

finding the right word can lead to frustration

voices singing and dancing, a mad apparition

.

stories by inference or partially told

using the script to create an illusion

rich and meaningful or just fools gold

having the reader draw their own conclusion

.

too many words makes it hard to stop

will anyone really truly comprehend

best leave the moral lessons to Aesop

and conclude this brainchild with the standard

“The End”

.
