A Passion


“With me


has not been

a purpose,

but a passion.


~ Edgar Allan Poe


Elfje:            (Cinquain)    Classic: each word only one syllable.



pale ale

drunk by peers

mixed with bock beer



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


drugs and alcohol

mind and body impairing

stuffing the feelings




just another emotional test
her mate, his love, was laid to rest
no need to hide how we feel
sobriety has taught us how to deal

share the feelings with a group of friends
the forlorn anguished soul to cleanse
get up, move on, try to help another
every soul is your God given brother

have gratitude for the good times past
accept that nothing in this world will last
work your program, seek peace of mind
to everyone, including yourself, be kind

feel the feelings, go with the flow
live in the light, avoid the shadow
be the person your Higher Power wants you to be
living a life that is happy, joyous and carefree


ME and the Boss
