Surrounded

“Poetry
surrounds us
everywhere,
but putting it
on paper is, alas,
not so easy as
looking at it.”


Vincent Van Gogh

Elfje: …… Cinquain ….. Classic: each word only one syllable.

sheet
the chart
on the map
a rag cloth tarp

Haiku:

muggy and buggy
the summer sun bakes the earth
crops walk the drought line

Poem:
.
ho hum he and ho hum she
with everything they would agree
they were boring and just so average
plain water was their favorite beverage

dressed plain in duds at a low cost
in a crowd they would get very lost
raised by parents who were really strict
on the playground they were never picked

the two were strolling by the lake one day
they spotted another couple walking their way
as they all grew closer four hearts started thumping
they stopped, they stared, you could hear the hearts pumping

shy and reticent no one said a word
God stepped in and sent them a messenger bird
a conversation piece, the four all started to talk all at once
brother and sister met brother and sister, instant romance

God created two unions right there on the spot
aren’t you happy there is a lid for every pot
