“Poets aren’t

very useful. 

Because they

aren’t consumeful

or very produceful.”


~  Ogden Nash


Elfje:            (Cinquain)          classic: each word only one syllable
a rhyme
ode to love
a song of praise

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7
a heart filled with hate
a childhood that was awful
God gave him a chance

she taught him to love himself
they shared a loving spirit



just another God given day
another chance to have fun and play
to be thankful for the blessings received
almost too good to be believed

rain or shine it is all about the attitude
happy are those who have gratitude
be kind and love unconditionally
every tribe finds it traditionally

every event is a God given blessing
a salad covered with your favorite dressing
time flies when you are having fun
always best shared with a loved one

have your mind stay in today and enjoy
let friends and laughter be your favorite toy

ME and the Boss
