Don’t Be Sorry






and don’t be sorry.”


~ Jack Kerouac


Elfje:            (Cinquain)



why me

why not me

a Higher Power’s design



Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7


do not pity me

God has a purpose for all

love consumes all things

try to do His will

do the next right thing


Poem:             The “Décima” is a Spanish style or form of musical poetry
that contains 10 lines of eight syllables.
The style has a rhyming pattern of abbaaccddc.
You (as I have done here) can break the stanza up in abba/accd/dc.


the music begins quietly
the beat is measured and steady
the dancers are poised and ready
their steps are made so silently

every move made decisively
all builds to a loud crescendo
no hint of an innuendo
a quadrille for merry lancers

smiles, laughter for band and dancers
finally a decrescendo


ME and the Boss
