Over and Done



over finish

your work.

There is value

to done.”


~   Paul Gauguin


Elfje:            (Cinquain)          classic: each word only one syllable



to act

make it run

while you have fun



Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7

weather is perfect
a time to go out and play
beautiful day

ignoring world chaos
democracy is alive




sunshine and rainbows, another beautiful day
the lucky have nothing to do but play
everyone can enjoy nature at it’s best
given life, every soul has been blessed

precipitation and wind, the weather is miserable
only the ducks may deem it considerable
the weather is good as a conversation piece
guess right or wrong the odds will never increase

the smart are patient knowing that water is life
the tolerant are able to avoid the strife
the wise do not discuss politics or religion
being careful not to expose the family addiction

ignore the weather it is about to change
most opinions are useless and usually strange
today, love, forgive, be patient, tolerant and kind
let only peace and happiness cross your mind


ME and the Boss
