“Poets are


with their


they exploit them.”


~ Friedrich Nietzsche


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



no  lie

what it is

in real time, space



Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)


cool mornings arrive

the sun warms the afternoon

spring in temperate zones




The only truth we have
is the real life we have lived
life in Hebrew, haim, to the rav
from memory the past is derived

ego’s pride makes up the lies
the false life we wanted to live
trying to avoid the booby prize
avoiding effort we needed to give

was it real or was it a dream
times swift pace makes life a blur
layers of reality from a deep running stream
ambitions which events had us defer

Tomorrow, God granted,
will we live the truth
with real can we be contented
or must we seek the fountain of youth

don’t waste time waiting for the last dance
if you are given the chance
live a life that you want to be true
a life with no lies is easy to review


ME and the Boss
