Fill It Up

.

“It’s just endless
what you can learn from
a single work of art.
You can fill up the crevices
of your life,
the cracks of your life,
the places where
the mortar comes out
and falls away-
you can fill it up with
the love of art.’

.

~  Vincent Price

scare
cause fear
shock the nerves
make the heart jump
spook                                    (What Vincent Price was know for.)

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)
.
spring colors blossom
refreshed after winters sleep
birds and bees arrive

Poem:

.

seeing red, totally vivid
ignorant actions that make one  livid
anger is another form of fear
ulterior motives made unclear

emotions that must be explained
to keep the soul from being drained
the lessons to teach patience and tolerance
situations that require our total sufferance

wisdom achieved by learning to listen
uncovering motives that were hidden
Spiritual progress became our ultimate goal
rediscovering the value of our soul

no longer red, what we see is clear
serenity and peace devoid of fear

Useful

.

“Poets aren’t

very useful. 

Because they

aren’t consumeful

or very produceful.”

.

~  Ogden Nash

Elfje:            (Cinquain)          classic: each word only one syllable
.
verse
a rhyme
ode to love
a song of praise
hymn
.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7
.
a heart filled with hate
a childhood that was awful
God gave him a chance

she taught him to love himself
they shared a loving spirit

.

Poem:
.

just another God given day
another chance to have fun and play
to be thankful for the blessings received
almost too good to be believed

rain or shine it is all about the attitude
happy are those who have gratitude
be kind and love unconditionally
every tribe finds it traditionally

every event is a God given blessing
a salad covered with your favorite dressing
time flies when you are having fun
always best shared with a loved one

have your mind stay in today and enjoy
let friends and laughter be your favorite toy
