Strike At The Soul

.

“To delight

the ear and the eye

is a mere sensual

indulgence;

—true poetry

strikes at the soul.”

.

― Samuel Egerton Brydges

me

in three

body, mind , soul

doing the Creators will

alive

.

Haiku:

.

beautiful evening

inspiration from above

nature adores praise

.

Poem:

.

Quiet the noisy mind
Have it in your heart to be kind

Seek serenity for your soul
Make peace of mind your only goal

Learn to love all and include yourself
Find tranquility in and of itself

For others be patient and tolerant
Of wants or needs be cognizant

For those who have no clue be forgiving
The Creator has a purpose for all of the living

And when your day is done let everyone agree
I was the person my God wanted me to be

.

Love, hugs and prayers. ME and the Boss

Nameless Graces

.

“Music resembles poetry,

in each are nameless graces

which no methods teach,

and which a master hand

alone can reach.”

.

― Alexander Pope

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

melodic

fingers dance

strings respond accordingly

tuned instrument, dynamic virtuoso

piano

.

Haiku:

.

sunrise muted haze

the master hand of nature

sunset brilliant blaze

.

Poem:

.

dimpled dancer Lilly
acting kind of silly
with talents endowed
excited the saloon crowd

ambition consumed her
practiced becoming a poseur
married to gain status
climbed upon the political apparatus

power became her passion
her persona she did refashion
she changed her name to Hillary
her soul bought by the big artillery

her ego convinced her she had won
she actually believed she was a nun
the electorate saw through her scam
she failed in their final exam

there is more yet to unfold
will the true story ever be told
has her foundation received its last donation
will what she deserves ever come to fruition

maybe she should just become Lilly again
and cease giving everyone a rectal pain
stop being the pot calling the kettle black
time to give Bill his deserved kickback

Gulliver struggled with the lilliputian
American’s their moral prostitution
how will democracy ever survive
surly it will not be by watching The Five

religious or not , say a prayer
hope will find a cure . . . somewhere
