Feed The Soul

“To me,
art begets art.
feeds the eye
just as poetry
feeds the ear,
which is to say
that both
feed the soul.”

Susan Vreeland


Elfje: …… Cinquain ….. Classic: each word only one syllable.
on head
two of them
one on each side
tornado warning
cold front comes barreling through
rain squalls and big wind
his story unfolded in many chapters
the episodes enriched with colorful actors
the grandchildren heard an installment per year
heartwarming tales sure to make them endear

his childhood memories from down on the farm
settings and characters imbued with rustic charm
idling the summers away fishing the pond
the long frigid winters more stories spawned

Fourth of July the annual family reunion
a rite nearly compared to a holy communion
Grandpa’s audience was to be the days climax
solemn memories recalled interspersed with wise cracks

family first was the message of his sage wisdom
love and trust shared on the honor system
