Live And Learn


“I stay cool,

and dig all jive,

That’s the way

I stay alive.

My motto,

as I live and learn,

is Dig and be dug

In return.”

~  Langston Hughes


Elfje:            (Cinquain)

swing music
sing the scat
and all that jazz


Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people  –   or pets    –
                                and their emotions/feelings as a topic)
all over the place
the pussy cat sought high ground
attack vantage points


what do you really understand
do you truly dig what you dug
does everything come out just as you planned
are you always as snug as a bug in a rug

as polite people say, feces occurs
living life applies to everyone
blessed are those who live many years
a requiem for those whose days are done

sad are those who live in the future or past
lucky are those who know one day at a time
smart are those who ignore the newscast
the wise are always looking forward to their prime

today, be the person your Higher Power wants you to be
happy, joyous and free is the absolute guarantee

ME and the Boss
