The Untier Of Knots


“The poet is

an untier of


and love

without words

is a knot,

and it drowns.”

~  Gabriela Mistral


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



be good

treat me fair

do next right thing



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


bawling, sobs and tears

she, who was the drama queen

never to console




searching for my inner strength
for my love I would go to any length
speaking the truth with only candor
never a hint of being a philander

learning that the perfect word is we
in all affairs, to be as honest as can be
to face the good times and the bad
having a trust that is truly ironclad

the deepest feelings, more than a friend
someone on whom you can always depend
the best partner ever for playing charades
a person with whom you can count decades

the heart that will go with me to any length
the soul who leads me to my inner strength


ME and the Boss
