A poem

is never finished,

only abandoned.

~ Paul Valery



Elfje:            (Cinquain)



gone away

nobody at home

only spirits rapping, tapping




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


how much do I love

who decides when it’s too much

feelings in balance




celebrating the holidays
historical events that we praise
a day for families to get together
always praying for good weather

for some families it is the patriarch
for others cultures it is the matriarch
hopefully the clan has a funny court jester
and in this corner the prudish aunt Esther

stories retold year after year
hugs and kisses, much good cheer
kindness and love makes it quite right
sober families never have a big fight

favorite  recipes and desserts galore
keeps everyone coming back for more
children and adults playing a game
the winner gets bragging rights to claim

day is done, no one wants to leave
the time flew like you can’t believe
each and all clamoring for next years encore
memories to keep for evermore



ME and the Boss
