Before The Break Of Day

.

“Oh! That was poetry!”

said Pippin.

“Do you really mean

to start before

the break of day?”

Elfje:    (Cinquain)

.

cynical

can’t believe

a sneering incredulity

derisive comments delivering harm

sarcastic

.

Haiku:

.

brilliant star lit night

are other worlds out there

God speaks in silence

.

Poem:

.

how insignificant man is
here today, gone tomorrow
there are no answers to the quiz
best to just go with the flow

the closer we get to how it works
the nearer we are to self destruction
self will just one of man’s many quirks
will creation survive deconstruction

think positive, enjoy the moment
control is limited to one’s attitude
keep praying for God’s atonement
think of the now as a pleasant interlude

happiness is proportional to acceptance
kindness is the foundation of love
know that the present enjoys your attendance
faith,  there really is a design from above

A Love Of Words

“…fine love poetry

tends to be written

when the object of

one’s affection is

at a safe distance;

also,

it often reflects

a love of words

more than a love of women…”

― Kate Fox

Elfje:   (Cinquain)

.

go

no wait

maybe we can

make up our minds

indecision

.

Haiku:

.

colorful rainbow

natures eternal promise

life giving water

.

Poem:

.

modern times demand modern poetry
how is that done with old fashioned words
must we reinvent a modern psychiatry
easier to just smoke some old fashioned herbs

can the poet create a new set of feelings
make his message more obscure
manufacture words with new meanings
stoop to using semantics that are impure

the easiest motive is to be yourself
trust God that he made you unique
be honest, the best poem is oneself
can you live with your own critique

everything happens in God’s time
the poets acceptance is declared in his rhyme
