“It is not

half so


to know

as to feel.”


~ Rachel Carson


Elfje:            (Cinquain)



goose bumps

move the soul

true heart felt love



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


missing the loved one

absence makes heart grow fonder

taking forever




God grant me some patience and tolerance
to find a place in a social distancing audience
a curmudgeon in recovery can still think of others
can they be brothers from different mothers

as one gets older do you forget your manners
do parents no longer teach social standards
sorry doesn’t cut it, please excuse me
you will not be invited for tea at three

cutting in line, like there won’t be enough
confronted they become filled with huff and puff
a whole generation living off the dole
enough votes to give bad politicians control

Woodstock was a peaceful demonstration
today’s aberration it is nothing but aggravation
looting and arson are not a protest
liberals objecting to the rioters arrest

pray that sanity will someday be restored
that civil unrest will not be ignored
that life again may start moving forward
a peace and calm will be the reward



ME and the Boss
