Above The Willow


“Amory took to writing poetry

on spring afternoons,

in the gardens of the big estates

near Princeton,

while swans made effective atmosphere

in the artificial pools,

and slow clouds sailed harmoniously

above the willow.”


― F. Scott Fitzgerald


Elfje:            (Cinquain)



as one

together we stand

birds of a feather



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


addicted to love

narcissistic character

unhealthy self love


Poem:  Ecstasy


floating in another dimension
viewing life with condescension

things not controlled, ignored
never consider being bored
very little that needs to be restored

life is such a nebulous It
what would you do without It
can one forgive and forget It
believe that some are counterfeit

who plans one’s life journey
could each decision use an attorney
are blessings only for those who are worthy

who controls our destiny
fake it until you make it, ecstasy


ME and the Boss
