A Mirror

.

“Poetry is

a mirror

which makes

beautiful

that which is

distorted

.

― Percy Bysshe Shelley

.

Elfje:    (also know as a Cinquain)

.

wavy

fun house

jump, squat, laugh

mirror on the wall

distorted

.

Haiku:

.

snow capped mountain peak

sparkling crystals blinding light

wafting spring zephyrs

.

Poem:

.

poetry is a form of meditation

.

the mind searches for a word

the word becomes the idea

at first the meaning is blurred

seeking a mental panacea

.

the poet holds up his mirror

he searches for the light needed to reflect

striving to make the pictures clearer

the image and the words he seeks to connect

.

in  his minds eye the story grows

people and places take their roles

is it going to be rhyming or will it be prose

like pilots the words work the controls

.

will his story continue on into infinity

always hoping for the happy ending

can he find the conclusion skillfully

only his ego knows that he was just pretending

.

listening to natures nocturnal music

wading through a surf warm gentle

his lyric poetry becomes therapeutic

the imagination is moved to the transcendental

.

is the emotional ride for the reader or the writer

when the story ends like the triumphant bullfighter

.
