All Things Created


All things created

have an order

in themselves,

and this begets

the form that

lets the universe

resemble God.”


~ Dante Alighieri


Elfje:            (Cinquain)



an image

an individual concept

personal belief



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


the death of a spouse

impossible to explain

emotions denied




he loved everything
he overused and abused the word
how can one love a bee sting
his love had become absurd

a beautiful soul taught him to like
appreciate became a new guideline
a new kindness invaded his psych
love was the tingling up and down his spine

he learned to hesitate before he judged
the single label ‘love’ did no longer work
another’s passion he no longer begrudged
he discovered a real life and love was a perk

for the rest of his life he spread the joy
admonishing others not to misuse the word love
he encouraged kindness the most to employ
to share the compassion we receive from above
