More Useful

.

“The poet

must be

more useful

than any

other member

of his tribe.”

Comte de Lautréamont

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

tribe
his kin
your own folk
our band with pride
clan

.

Tanka: 5,7,5 7,7 syllables

.

scent was in the air
met a pie man goin’ where
to the county fair

one a penny hot crossed bun
a pun can be so much fun

.

Poem:

.

it was a full moon, what a scare
heard noises but nothing was there
men in wolves clothing were howling
the old wives faces were scowling

the shining brought out the lunatic
tricks to be played on the local dipstick
lore propagated by the areas monsters
what evils lurk in the deep ponds waters

souls revisiting on all hallows eve
reminders for those left to greave
could the cow jump over the moon
lovers taking the time to spoon

the moon is such a wonderful topic
except for those who are totally myopic

The Veil Of Order

.

“In a work of art,

chaos must shimmer

through the veil

of order.”

~ Novalis

shake

all around

like Elvis did

was banned in Boston

shimmy                              (Shimmy ko ko bop)

Haiku:     (5-7-5, nature and seasons the topic)

.

green fields turn to orange

again Nature recycles

as pumpkin time nears

Poem:

.

ghost, goblins, ghouls, zombies
tis the season of the undead
movies based on scary stories
beware of the body without a head

door to door on all hallows’ eve
about the religious significance a little naive
the big kids would trick or treat
we knew everyone up and down the street

bed sheets for costumes, one size fits all
competing to get the biggest haul
candy and enough apples to make a pie
so much sugar I could really fly

times change, much trust has been lost
could we bring back the reason at any cost

Allhallowtide, Hallowtide, Allsaintstide, or the Hallowmas season,
is the triduum encompassing the Western Christian observances
of All Saints’ Eve (Halloween), All Saints’ Day (All Hallows’) and
All Souls’ Day, which last from 31 October to 2 November annually.
