Wake Up

.

“The man who lies asleep

will never waken fame,

and his desire and all his life

drift past him like a dream,

and the traces of his memory

fade from time

like smoke in air,

or ripples on a stream.”

.

~ Dante Alighieri

to want
plan to have
hope for the best

frilly emotion
can’t wait to be an adult
teenage puppy love
.

Poem:
.

butterflies in the stomach
puppy love takes its first bite
to prove it we’ll kiss in public
the touch that brings delight

holding hands wherever we go
walking is like skipping on air
both of us are proof in the photo
what’s outside our world we don’t care

friendship rings we proudly displayed
hickies on the neck we tried to hide
at home the parents silently prayed
she’s just too young to be a bride

soul mates from the very start
decades spent together
love conveyed heart to heart
surviving all kinds of weather

a friendship that never grew old
youths to old codgers, never a worry
a true love that never went cold
lucky are those who made this journey

Abandoned

.

A poem

is never finished,

only abandoned.

~ Paul Valery

Elfje:            (Cinquain)

.

left

gone away

nobody at home

only spirits rapping, tapping

alone

 

.

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

.

how much do I love

who decides when it’s too much

feelings in balance

.

Poem:

.

celebrating the holidays
historical events that we praise
a day for families to get together
always praying for good weather

for some families it is the patriarch
for others cultures it is the matriarch
hopefully the clan has a funny court jester
and in this corner the prudish aunt Esther

stories retold year after year
hugs and kisses, much good cheer
kindness and love makes it quite right
sober families never have a big fight

favorite  recipes and desserts galore
keeps everyone coming back for more
children and adults playing a game
the winner gets bragging rights to claim

day is done, no one wants to leave
the time flew like you can’t believe
each and all clamoring for next years encore
memories to keep for evermore
