Dreams Gave Both


At Night Love said,

“Wake still and think of me,”

Sleep, “Close your eyes

till break of day,”

But Dreams came by and

smilingly Gave both to

Love and Sleep their way.”

~  Sara Teasdale


Elfje:            (Cinquain)



mind slipped

away from reality

irresponsible inappropriate social behaviors



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


heart felt petty love

the verge of insanity

the reason to love




when does infatuation become love
does love mature as we grow older
questions answered when push comes to shove
true love is in the heart of the beholder

the poet uses love as a subject because
love can be whatever the poet wants it to be
for many ailments love is the probable cause
always and ever, to be true love it must be free

the heart knows the difference between love and like
love is different things to different people
love does not travel well on a high speed turnpike
life is love in one long continuous sequel

healthy relations use the same definition of love
the happiest use a guidance from above


ME and the Boss
