The Illusion Of Poetry

“For my part,

I love to give myself up

to the illusion of poetry.

A hero of fiction that

never existed is just as

valuable to me as a hero

of history that existed

a thousand years ago.”


~ Washington Irving


Elfje:         (Cinquain)



before we                         (you, me, us, they, them)

things to remember

history will repeat itself



Lune:    5 / 3 / 5


characters to love

my heart knows

good, bad or ugly




the happy warrior wins the day
with his children he did play

flowers he brought for his wife
a happy home was their way of life

as a couple they knew how to share
motivated by the need to care

at church, together they prayed
the community received their aid

mankind was meant to be this way
be a peacenik, make love, not war today

do your part to be the happy warrior
race and religion, break down the barrier

be the person your God wants you to be
one who enjoys this life, carefree


ME and the Boss.
