Exaltation Of The Mind


“A song is

the exaltation

of the mind

dwelling on eternal things,

bursting forth in the voice.”


― Thomas Aquinas



Elfje:        (Cinquain)



beyond kind

secret gift giver

his intercessions worked miracles



Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)


Cupid’s arrow strikes

the smitten don’t understand

is it love or lust




sing a song of romance
love will give you the chance
for the one who receives your affection
mesmerized at first glance

the heart feels the inflection
the mind believes it is perfection
the whole world becomes satisfying
all things glow with a rosy reflection

passions arise which are gratifying
a steadfast devotion which is undying
love will give you the chance
don’t doubt, believe in the mystifying

love does not arrive by happenstance
God’s design includes all circumstance
