Lost Vocabularies

“I dream of

lost vocabularies

that might express

some of what

we no longer can.”

― Jack Gilbert

Elfje: Cinquain
do tell
so to speak
a small chit chat

Lune: 5,3,5
hearts that beat true blue
love that grows
stronger every day
time for an unicorn revisit
pink clouds and rainbows to elicit
opening the mind to a happy fantasy
imagining will never be blasphemy

real scene or mental image
mostly inherited by matrilineage
painted on the child’s bedroom wall
a stream flowing towards the waterfall

the whole outdoors your living room
designed using your nom de plume
flora selected to support more fauna
birds and bees and maybe an iguana

colors selected to reflect the viewers mood
from dark, heavy to light and renewed
no ghost, goblins or aliens allowed
jubilation by heavenly sprites endowed

praying for the world to enjoy levity
your attitude is yours, we seek indemnity
