Live And Learn

.

“I stay cool,

and dig all jive,

That’s the way

I stay alive.

My motto,

as I live and learn,

is Dig and be dug

In return.”

.
~  Langston Hughes

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)
.

jive
swing music
sing the scat
and all that jazz
bebop

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people  –   or pets    –
                                and their emotions/feelings as a topic)
.
all over the place
the pussy cat sought high ground
attack vantage points
.

Poem:
.

what do you really understand
do you truly dig what you dug
does everything come out just as you planned
are you always as snug as a bug in a rug

as polite people say, feces occurs
living life applies to everyone
blessed are those who live many years
a requiem for those whose days are done

sad are those who live in the future or past
lucky are those who know one day at a time
smart are those who ignore the newscast
the wise are always looking forward to their prime

today, be the person your Higher Power wants you to be
happy, joyous and free is the absolute guarantee

What Is The Question ? ? ?

.

.

“It is better

to know some

of the questions

than all of

the answers.”

.

~ James Thurber

.

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)    Classic: each word only one syllable.
.

ask
call for
want to say
beg to see more
pose

.

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)
.
Florida sweet corn
first crop is ready to pick
enough sun and rain
.

Poem:

.

there is this kitten from hell
all he does is very loudly yell
a needy cat all he wants is attention
the energy level is from another dimension

the cat in the mirror is his newest toy
full steam ahead, no need to be coy
such a little thing with such a loud purr
so much life in that small ball of fur

always in trouble, too much curiosity
to the family he is a source of jocosity
no, no, let go of that curtain
looks like he’ll need all nine lives that is for certain

will we still love him when he becomes a cat ? ? ?
probably, as long as he doesn’t become a bureaucrat
