The Experimental Life

.

“The world has

never favored

the experimental life.

It despises poets,

fanatics, prophets

and lovers.”

.
― Randolph Bourne

hook

by crook

what the heck

nails on the paw

claw

.

Senryu:

,

lost in mornings mist

a question which way to turn

the mind is at sea

,

Poem:

.

so sad
they died so young
taken by the disease of addiction

I’m mad
so many songs to be sung
for some families a predisposition

granddad
the first to be stung
but not the first to suffer from the trip to perdition

dad
heard it from grandmother’s tongue
but he chose to ignore the dreaded admonition

son
much to young to see how the door swung
hopefully the last to suffer from this malediction

I’m glad
on the ladder there is one more rung
a twelve step program to keep the devil in remission

Over and Done

.

"Dont

over finish

your work.

There is value

to done.”

.

~   Paul Gauguin

.

Elfje:            (Cinquain)          classic: each word only one syllable

.

work

to act

make it run

while you have fun

play

.

Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7
.

weather is perfect
a time to go out and play
beautiful day

ignoring world chaos
democracy is alive

.

Poem:

.

sunshine and rainbows, another beautiful day
the lucky have nothing to do but play
everyone can enjoy nature at it’s best
given life, every soul has been blessed

precipitation and wind, the weather is miserable
only the ducks may deem it considerable
the weather is good as a conversation piece
guess right or wrong the odds will never increase

the smart are patient knowing that water is life
the tolerant are able to avoid the strife
the wise do not discuss politics or religion
being careful not to expose the family addiction

ignore the weather it is about to change
most opinions are useless and usually strange
today, love, forgive, be patient, tolerant and kind
let only peace and happiness cross your mind
