Succeed

.

“Success is

counted sweetest

by those

ne’er succeed.”

.

― Emily Dickinson

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

small

not microscopic

somewhere in between

smaller than a breadbox

little

.

Senryu:      5-7-5 ( Haiku with people and their emotions/feelings as a topic)

.

fear creates bigot

one who can never be wrong

your opinion sucks

.

Poem:

.

switch gears
change your mind
let go of fears
let yesterday behind
no more tears
to ugly be blind

focus on love
let the sunshine in
do forgiveness a lot of
kindness is a win win
seek guidance from above
never ever sin

to the ignorant show patience
the best medicine is a good laugh
to the stupid extend tolerance
happiest are those who only take half
perfection is to seek the balance
warrant what will be an honest epitaph

relax
meditate
enjoy life to the max
let karma dictate your fate
let every ending be a happy climax
life should, could and can be great

The Colors Change

.

“Life’s like

a painters palette,

just when you’ve got

everything worked out

the colours change”

.

~ Benny Bellamacina

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

black

darkest colour

absence of light

while over the rainbow

white

.

Haiku:

.

birds migrating south

can winter be far behind

seasonal cycle

.

.

.

Poem:

.

lived in the negative
could never see the positive
the brain is on backward
the emotions fractured

one was never enough
morally never grew up
selfish and self-centered
the mouth was uncensored

suicide was always an option
rage on the verge of eruption
an existence lived in purgatory
fodder for a horrible short story

shifted gears, took it out of reverse
told that life is not a permanent curse
followed the suggestions of a few
found a way of living that was new

the road still has the same pot holes
easy to miss with God at the controls
it’s easy to be serious only part time
dance, sing, laugh, love,
enjoy the rhyme . . .
