The Value Of Doing Nothing

.

“Don’t underestimate

the value of Doing Nothing,

of just going along,

listening to all the things

you can’t hear,

and not bothering.”

.

~ A. A. Milne

.

.

Elfje:         (Cinquain)

.

ignore

brush aside

disregard intentionally

pay no attention to

cold-shoulder

.

Haiku:

.

full moon lights the night

crickets serenade summer

hoot owl calls echo

.

Poem:

.

who’s bothering you
what’s bothering you
when’s it bothering
where’s it bothering

no bother

who’s bugging you
what’s bugging you
when’s it bugging
where’s it bugging

no bugs

who’s irritating you
what’s irritating you
when’s it irritating
where’s it irritating

no irritation

maybe it’s you
could be you
learn to accept
try a new precept

just forget the why
just forget the how

don’t let it bother you
don’t let it bug you
don’t let it irritate you
be happy, joyous and free
be the person God wants you to be

I’m Not Lost

.

“I’m not lost

for I know

where I am.

But however,

where I am

may be lost.”

.

~ A. A. Milne

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

lost

can’t find

out of sight

nowhere to be seen

misplaced

.

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

.

a contented smile

mother contemplates her child

God’s purpose fulfilled

.

Poem:

.

even with all of your flaws, I love you
hope you love me too, warts and all
together, every day is something new
always glad to be at your beck and call

content to tolerate life’s ups and downs
seeing how others work things through
always willing to bring in the clowns
demanding more than just to make do

you are the answer to my prayer
an angel sent from heaven above
giving someone a life to share
knowing what it means to love

you will be forever in my heart
life or death can never take us apart
