The Final Achievement


“Simplicity is the

final achievement.

After one has played

a vast quantity of notes

and more notes,

it is simplicity

that emerges as

the crowning reward of art.”     

~  Frédéric Chopin


Elfje:         (Cinquain)    classic: each word only one syllable
let up
calm the nerves
glad to be me

Lune:    5 / 3 / 5
please pay the piper
donate to the cause



azaleas blooming, red, white and pink
at the Masters it is the signature drink
the tournament renowned as  golf’s best
for the players it is the ultimate contest

for many it is physical prowess tested
Mark Twain called it a good walk wasted
for the spectators it is the ultimate garden
so pristine, Mother Nature will never need a pardon

azaleas announce spring from Florida to Pennsylvania
followed by the seedless families cryptogamia*
camera ready, a springtime beauty to behold
many precious memories more valued than gold

why does man hold on to his history
the ego is at the core of this mystery
who cares how many tournaments this man has won
let us find a way where everyone can have some fun


ME and the Boss


cryptogamia*    in a former classification systems: one of two major plant divisions,
including all plants that do not bear seeds: ferns, mosses, algae, fungi.
