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.

.

ME and the Boss
