Understood / Understand

“First, I do not

sit down at my desk

to put into verse

something that is

already clear in my mind.

. . .

We do not write

in order to be understood;

we write in order

to understand.”     .       ~ Cecil Day Lewis

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

who

what, when

where, why, maybe

answers rarely agreed upon

you

.

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

.

remorse, guilt and shame

negative thoughts on steroids

fuel for depression

.

Poem:           ( villanelle )

.

feelings that are too large to measure
those events that make the heart proud
memories that we will always treasure

ceremonies summoned to mind with pleasure
impressions remembered when on the pink cloud
feelings that are too large to measure

events easily recalled at one’s leisure
always happy to be shared with a crowd
memories that we will always treasure

gratitude and blessings regardless of the weather
more joy than anyone should be allowed
feelings that are too large to measure

the successful life changing great adventure
from the rooftops we shouted aloud
memories that we will always treasure

times that bring friends and family together
emotions with which we all are endowed
feelings that are too large to measure
memories that we will always treasure
