What Can Be Explained

“What can be

explained

is not poetry.

~ William Butler Yeats

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

prose

not poems

stream of conscious

stoned hippies ruined poetry

meaningless

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5

how fast is the mind

speed of light

to quick to forget

Poem:

.

they read the same paragraph
there were two different opinions
they saw the same photograph
neither had the same visions

who is to judge right or wrong
as long as nobody gets hurt
providing the price is just a song
given that the first course is dessert

how important is it anyhow
this too shall pass
does it make one raise the eyebrow
does it make you first in class

be tolerant,  allow others to be right
be patient, prayers are answered in God’s time
be forgiving, be willing to give up the fight
be generous, brother, can you spare a dime

be the person God wants you to be
a  soul that is happy, joyous and free.
