“Oh phosphorescence.
Now there’s a word
to lift your hat to…
To find that

that light within —
is the genius behind


― William Luce

Elfje: ….. Classic: each word only one syllable. Cinquain
well lit
a clear white
see in the dark

Senryu 5x7x5
happy with myself
not depressed or lonely
a good attitude


there was an accident the other day
we hope nothing serious we pray
someone’s life will forever be changed
things once taken for granted now estranged

finger pointing, blame, whose fault was it
can I remember, honestly, hypocrite
insurance company will twist the facts
something about the wording in the contracts

quick settlement or all the way to trial
meanwhile, a total change in one’s lifestyle
in the end it’s all about the money
a golden egg laid by the easter bunny

and through it all the indelible curse
the limp that hurts and only gets worse
ME and the Boss
