Invisible

.

“The poet is

the priest

of the

invisible.”

.

— Wallace Stevens

Elfje:      (Cinquain)

.

twilight

in camouflage

concealed in color

birds chirp evening psalms

invisible

.

Haiku:

.

blizzard of brightness

an invisible world

a winter white out

.

Poem:

.

love lost, love gained

the backbone of music and verse

life’s tribulations to be explained

.

emotions usually hid in a closet

songs vicariously used to emote

seeking a ride on a fantasy rocket

.

love yourself, love others

some preach unconditional love

the best love comes from Mothers

.

when one is feeling down and small

it is best to remember

God loves us all

Poem:

.

luck

.

there was a man named Stan

of limericks he was not a fan

he possessed no sense of humor

just another misplaced baby boomer

.

he could get lost on the playground

the favorite target of the class clown

on all of his test he was just so average

couldn’t even decide on a preferred beverage

.

at sixteen he failed his drivers test

playing video games he became obsessed

his high water pants gave everyone a laugh

not one yearbook did he ever autograph

.

finally, as a senior, he just hung in there

with the class queen he had an affair

she made millions from her photograph

and good old Stan had the last laugh

.
