The Mind



the mind

can conceive

and believe,

it can achieve.”


~ Napoleon Hill


Elfje:            (Cinquain)



trade in

brand name loyalty

style versus accessories function



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


fake crocodile tears

sympathy for a hurt pride

empathy deserved




if it is not love, it is the trees
a fascination with the birds and the bees
poetry tells stories and speaks emotions
living life by going through the motions

love is learning to see with the heart
knowing that everyone has a part
the very first step is sharing kindness
common interests will soon lead to fondness

today I’ll love my favorite squeeze
a thankful heart contented to please
together we’ll enjoy the beach and some flowers
going home to watch reruns of Fawlty Towers

there for each other as life does change
ignoring quirky habits others may think strange
happy are they who share love and nature
never to argue with the great Creator

love unconditionally, be a blessing
wear a big smile, it will keep them guessing



ME and the Boss
